edit: I used purevpn before. requested for refund before the money back guarantee period was over.. one of the worst paid VPN I've tried before. yes it's dirt cheap, but PIA price is not far off and purevpn can only smell PIA's smoke when I compared the speed and features.
When I see the word “downloading” I kind of associate that with torrent stuff which I think is problematic...
So it seems to me that you are more concerned about privacy and not to circumvent Geo-blocking, Is that right? PIA seems to be well suited for this purpose from what I gathered here.
Experts here may give you better recommendations. I am new to this stuff myself, only tried a few China specific VPNs to go inside China for Geo-blocking content. I am also interested in VPNs to be used in China as well.
yes it works..but speed is slow compared to astrill i was using last time..but still usable..but i think need to destroy the droplet in order not to be charged
$0.007/hr..else its $5/mth ..going to try setup algo or https://getoutline.org on digitalocean ..outline from google seems very easy to setup
for normal usage privacy and P2P downloading (torrenting), you can consider PIA. speed is fast (~100mbps) even when connected to Canada, Sweden, Germany servers that supports port forwarding. if you don't require port forwarding support for torrenting, you can simply connect to nearer servers (SG, HK) for even higher spred.
are you talking about streaming boxes with official Android TV OS (mibox, nvidia shield) or those China boxes running mobile Android OS?
if it's the latter, just try any reputable VPN providers with good android app and free trials to test first. otherwise you have to set your box to run using OpenVPN connect.
if you are using official Android TV OS box, then I can't really give you any recommendations now.. because I have tried running PIA VPN on my mibox3 via PIA's app, OpenVPN app and via my router, all 3 will sometimes leak IP or DNS.
anyways nowadays using Android boxes can just sideload those apps to watch us and uk programs isit it? doesn't matter your location is.
Netflix not an issue for me since I am paying for Netflix and using mibox..
I stopped using Kodi long ago because it's pointless to keep looking for working repo to install just to find out that it's no longer working a few days later.. nowadays those apps seems to work better and last longer.
