Any experience with them? I'm most interested in the performance of their service when funneling Usenet / BitTorrent traffic.

I don't use BitTorrent. Today using Sabnzbd my download speed is 2.0Mb/s from SSL servers and usually it is between 2 ~ 3Mb/s. Speed will depend from server you are connected to and some other factors (your internet speed, router, VPN type - PPTP, OpenVPN, etc.). I have Bell Fibe 16.
My primary use is to conceal my IP address to listen to Pandora and watch US Netflix. I haven't notice big difference in web surfing speed.
I also have Witopia at office and I can tell that Astrill feels faster although I haven't measure and compare speeds.

Pretty crappy feedback from users if you spend some time on google.

ibVPN has been 100% for me for the past year and now they have a 25% off sale.

Is that 25% off for each recurring month? Also, do you just get the Canada/US package?

Yes, they have a China (Hong Kong) and China (mainland) servers if I remember right.

I used Astrill for 1.5 years after trying out a few others during my 3 yr stay in China. Astrill was definitely the best and easiest to use, especially toggling it on/off and switching VPN servers. They also will give you an open port for Port-forwarding if you turn that on in the settings...useful for torrent downloads.

Oh, and Astrill doesnt track your activity and report if you download potentially copywritten material. Other VPNs I tried did do this.

Dunno , ordered a package.
Valid on all packages , I saw no restriction. BTW, it maxes up my cable line speed was always good.

Can you point me to that statement that they don't keep log ?
I only see a full page of data they WILL collect and use about what you do online....
https://www.astrill.com/privacy-policy.php

ibVPN clearly states that no log will be kept here :

+1 for ibVPN. i got it last year, i think it was around Boxing week when they had a 50% off sale, hopefully they will again this year then i'll renew (i buy annual). bitorrent allowed on certain servers, and it works great for U.S. Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, etc.

If all one is interested in is US Netflix, etc, am I correct in assuming that the Canada/US package would suit those needs? The Total/Ultimate packages look like overkill to me.

If no p2p is involved then yes Can/US is all you need
