I decided to pull the trigger and sign up as well. I just want the DNS proxy access anyways. Don't care about the VPN as much.

Sorry I did. I havent been able to access netflix at all and hulu still reports I'm an international customer. Tried changing computer DNS, Apple TV DNS, and even router. None worked.


I've requested a refund, lets see how it goes...

Did you even read the Setup page on their website?

You realize that you need to "authorize" your ip for it to work (just like unblockus, uno telly etc.. )

If you are thinking about using this VPN, you need to read Michael Geist's blog today. A recent court case decided that a Canadian resident can be sued in a U.S. court if they used a U.S.-based server for an illegal data transfer. If you think it's scary being sued for copyright infringement in a Canadian court, it would be so much worse in a U.S. court, where there is no $5000 limit. This VPN uses servers in the U.S.. Draw your own conclusions.

I've been doing some research on this and stubled across http://www.bestvpnservice.com/top-ten-providers.php. They've got PureVPN rated as #1 and reviews seem to be really good from customers. Their pricing seems pretty competitive for the security they are reporting - $160 if you sign-up for 1-year on their unlimited plan.

Does anyone here have any experience or maybe more educated in VPN services that could comment?

depending what you want to use the VPN for.. i have used Witopia in the past for a few years and i was really happy with the speeds, uptime and support.
They are really cheap also.. PPTP is around $50 for a year

If your going to do anything remotely illegal, you will want to go with a provider that is not in the USA or Canada

Is the HK server fast enough to watch TVB?

How important is OpenVPN? I've read some comments indicating that they would buy a service that doesn't offer it. PureVPN is #1 rated, but doesn't offer that protocol - does that make it less secure? slower? Sorry for all the NOOB questions.

I'm not an expert, but I think you'd pick a server in the country you want to stream from (assuming there's restriction for it coming directly to Canada). So you wouldn't necessarily be using the HK server for US content as an example.

This is so far the lowest price VPN server/month with HK server so I signed up yesterday also.

With PPTP VPN, I was having issue connecting to tvb.com or mytv.tvb.com (pages doesn't load). I have then tried HTTP proxy and I can watch it, but the streaming lag every 15seconds or so...........

I will try once more again tonight with OpenVPN and see how it goes. Speedtest.net to one of the HK server (from here to HK VPN server to speedtest server) shows that I have constant ~1.2mbps download and ~1mbps upload.
