Downloading stuff is the one thing which may need higher bandwidth, but anyway for overseas servers usually the bandwidth is limited. So it should not matter too much as long as you do not have high expectations.

Is there any free VPN which allow me to connect to US? I only need to connect like 15 minutes.

Yes. There are quite some free options.

I am using the following two and they are very good. Of course they are not useful for things like Netflix unblocking but they should be good for many other use cases. I have paid purevpn as well but actually the following two free ones are enough for me already for non-China use cases.

Astrill Android VPN, only for Android phone/tablet, unlimited.

Windscribe free 10GB per month (got promotion code for 20GB or even 50GB from time to time).

Is there China one? So can view China live

What do you mean by China Live?

If you mean live TV, then no need VPN. Use free apps like 火星直播 and 橙色电视 live, from Shafa Market.

If you mean China VOD apps (Tencent Video, iQiyi, etc) or live sports apps (PPTV Sports for soccer, Tencent Sports for NBA), then you need China VPN like Transocks or AJS 爱加速. I am paying for AJS myself. Usually you need to subscribe to VIP as well.

You can refer to my posts in the Chinese Entertainment thread. Both iOS and Android are covered even though the title says iPhone.

Which China VPN are you using now for PPTV Sports?

I am paying for AJS myself to use apps like Youku TV (mostly no need VPN as I have VIP), Tencent Video and iQiyi. Not really use it that much though, only occasionally.

Previously I used Transocks free version (ads supported) and also AJS when it was free. Then I played with SpeedIn, SpeedCN and Malas as well. In the end I feel AJS and Transocks are the best for normal VOD apps.

I see. Yes Transocks is one of the best and it is cheaper than AJS if you need the three connection Transocks offers.

I only need one connection so I choose to pay for AJS which is a bit cheaper. AJS seems to have more servers but the speed is still so so. Sometimes I can get 1080p but sometimes I can only get 720p from the apps.

Better AJS servers with low pings are mostly from China Mobile or China Unicom, not from China Telecom.

You can set up to use AJS only on selected apps. Then the rest of the apps will not go through AJS. In that case no issues with Google or Facebook.

Same for other major China VPN apps like Transocks.
