i am still on the fence on whether to sign up for the 5 years Purevpn or the 1+1 year for the PureVPN. i am be just using configuring the vpn on the Asus router , that's all

Any suggestion ?
Tried it and it's super slow and remove it from my router setting.
Just use the PureVPN Mobile App on both my iOS and Android and it's way better. Just switch On/Off for my NetFlix viewing.

My Apple TV I use SmartDNS to configure within the Apple TV network setting since Apple TV don't have the App just like iOS and Android.

Which services are able to access China content without buffering problems during peak hours?

- How about Unotelly UnoDNS, since they claim to support pptv, youku, xiami, baidu music, etc? This one should have best performance since it uses SmartDNS?
Using Astrill StealthVPN on the websites above.

Xiami Before

About Astrill VPN
- private ips can do what with it?
- NAT firewall is it a good option to purchase that?

I didn't purchase those. For bypassing geo blocking, you don't need that. As to what it's use for, I leave it to others to comment.

Is Astrill 1 year 29.99 a good deal?

Come with Stealth VPN. But it allows only 1 desk/laptop and 1 mobile device. Can I top up to add 1 more laptop?
If you want to use on multiple devices then install the Astrill applet on your router.

Before you start your game, select other country server and see if it's blocked, if it's not blocked then your will save on your monthly IP subscription. US$5/month?

Salmonella, hope I answered your question
Thanks much! Yeah, that looks good.

I've signed up for a unotelly trial, and that seems to unblock china content too. I wonder which would be better.

the game website blocked me from buying their pre-order but i was able to go on the website pre-order page once i use astrill trial version. Does that mean it works?

Is NAT Firewall useful?

I don't have such problem. Why not you online chat with their support, I'm sure they will be able to solve your problem.
