VPN Provider

Postby Strong Eagle » Wed, 28 Sep 2011 11:09 pm

I can't find the thread on watching US shows and VPN so...

I am using Overplay... https://www.overplay.net/

I bought it mainly because Malaysia ISP's block port 25... outbound email... so makes it impossible to send with a prepaid data card or 3G modem.

Overplay werks gude. Also good speeds. And when connected to US server most US websites see me in Washington DC, amongst other places.

Mods can see that I am posting from 38.105.29.130. Check it out.

They charge you after a few VPN changes... like this is a tough thing to do. And reviews suggest strong VPN aint the fastest... just sayin'.

I'm on StrongVPN right now and getting a 13Mbps download speed from the UK. The trick with StrongVPN is to connect to the servers around London (eg. Maidenhead, Milton Keynes, Canterbury) to get the fastest speeds.

I would recommend you PureVPN to be able to access streamed movies from the US AND UK. What i didn't expect was how fast and reliable the connection would be. I'd recommend the service wholeheartedly and certainly intend to continue use.

purevpn sucks. i signed up for their $2.50 trial account a few months back and the sign up procedure was a pain. their customer service was a pain. the vpn itself was pain.

and they wouldn't gimme back my $2.50 - yeah, i know it's just 2.50 but i didn't use it for more than 30 minutes coz the video wouldn't stream properly.

i wasted a few hours waiting and setting up the stupid thing. mostly waiting.

My "friend" is using StrongVPN as well to access Hulu, Netflix and websites that may be blocked in Singapore.
