Good deal $39 - 2 years
I'm confused by the math. If you go to NordVPN's site, it's $120/year, but they have a 70% off New Year's deal for $36/year. But your stacksocial deal talks about NordVPN for a 2 year subscription for $120 normally, but it's 67% off at $39/2 years (?) for another day. Is that right? I want to pull the trigger, but I want to be sure first.

This link was posted in the PIA thread. The poster said don't worry about peerblock in the video, I didn't use peerblock. Also Ironsocket members don't have to enter any info for user authentication because of the IP authorization used by Ironsocket. I did however check the box and left username and password blank.

Can anyone confirm this is correct?

I am basically looking to watch streams and also torrent.

Obviously speed is important, seems to be hit and miss using this and pia.

Want something simple. Also, I have two laptops, I would like to run one with no Vpn and the other using vpn. Can this be done?

Aside from price, what would be my best choice? Pia vs this?

might have to cancel before the 7 days if they don't add support for the US news sites.
Open a ticket through their website for the sites which do not work, they are typically very fast to fix them.

Depends on his line. He is getting 8 mega bits/s which is fine. Speeds vary quite a bit with the server you use. They are actually very good and their DNS proxy is excellent.

I know I was confused too but stacksocial has really good deals usually. I bought the 39$ and its for 2 years so better deal. The stack social one ends soon though.

Well nobody is giving any relative context to their definition of speed, to me that is super slow and if that was the max it could handle I would cancel immediately. I'm probably going to sign up with IronSocket tonight after looking at all of the competition this year (I have had PIA for the past few years but found IT rather slow... just want to try something different now).

As per NordVPN it's a tempting deal and it looks good because they have a stylish corporate site but if you research it more than a little bit you find some pretty horrible accounts of their speed out there, shockingly slow even... also accounts of lots of disconnecting etc. Not worth it IMO, there is probably a reason why it is priced this way.

Then you're fine, but it isn't difficult to find a VPN provider than can proxy no problem at such a slow speed. What I want to hear is from somebody that is on a 150/250Mbps plan.

I may have asked this before but can I setup DNS with my bell hub? It looks like I can go into it and change the DNS settings just worried to play around with it, don't know if I should be.

Just wondering as you posted you have PIA and said it's slow for you. I have a 150/10 plan and I am debating between ironsocket and PIA. What speeds are you getting on your plan?

EDIT: I was also looking at IPVanish but they're very expensive and I haven't seen as many reviews around, although what I have seen say it's very fast.
