Not sure about SG server speed because it's only under the pro plan. Maybe subscribe to test, if lousy then apply for refund (within 3 days)?

Btw, save you some money here ;):
https://dealfuel.com/seller/windscribe-lifetime-service/
Enter promo code XMASDF25 to make it $29.25 (lifetime!)

The question is whether this provider will last a lifetime?

But $30 is worth the risk. Hopefully can last at least 1 year.

My VPN is almost expire, any recommendation? Previous was on ASTRILL but not renewing as it getting expensive so want to jump ship. Heard HMA is good, pureVPN is good. So which is better?

Depending on the purpose. Try VPN.ac they have 2 days trial. I wrote about it here. For me nothing come close to Astrill in terms of great (desktop) apps and speeds, well, maybe VyprVPN is getting close, but somehow I was not happy with them.

Thanks for the share, Me been using ASTRILL for almost 5yr until recently i check the prices. It was quite Ex as compare to others VPN.

I will not choose VyprVPN, as it not up to expected. :s13:

Thanks at least I can try VPN.ac as another alternative.

I mainly watch US drama so a no throttling of speed will be prefer. Watch China show and music using Kugou. Torrent...of course. Gaming e.g. Diablo.

I am comfortable with Astrill and I think I will just stick with them. I think Astrill will eventually reduce their price if more subscribers jump ship to other cheap providers.

Me too, been with them for 4 years already. Their speed is good.

Same here. I've tried a few others, all fell short compared to Astrill. I know I'm paying more for Astrill, but I'd rather cut my spending on other things than having the frustration I experienced with other vpn providers.

Thanks, everyone. I believe I will continue renew ASTRILL, Speed is good. Services is good too. Especially, those who like me more on China website and music.

Windscribe is cool, has 10 GB free monthly which fits my needs.

there was a promo that gave 50gb free forever, just need to enter 50GBFREE at the code page, go to my account in the website and find

not sure if its still valid though

HMA has 7 day trial here , you need to enter cc but won't be charged if you cancel within 7 days. I was always curious how well they with their virtual servers (connecting to one location e.g. Singapore but appearing as in US). Will give them a try.

I've tried HMA before. It's a huge disappointment in terms of speed among a few others I tried. The download speed is unstable, swinging from fast to slow. It's about 2 years ago I last tested HMA. Maybe they've improved. No harm trying, but don't buy before you try others.

Yes it is always better to try if possible. And for those who decide eventually it is better to go through Stacksocial as they have 2 year HMA VPN deal for $54.99.

True, nothing beats them despite the pricing... But then again, depending on the purpose Astrill may be overkill to someone's needs and there are indeed cheaper alternatives available.

I would stay far far away from HMA. They gave up users details to law enforcement some years back.

Anyone can compare Astrill to ExpressVPN in terms of speed for US based servers? Thanks!
