Dedicated IPs..... Hard pass.

And probably no PF??

Thanks OP...been a long time TorGuard member for about the last 4 years.

Although I don't like that they charge extra for a dedicated Streaming IP...as other companies offer it together with the service...but it does not impact me as I am now not a Netflix or streaming service member.

However, they make up for it with great customer service and a good product service.

Just renewed for another couple years even though my current membership still has several months left. They just adjusted the date accordingly for me...no problem.

They offered me another deal though. Just get the mini router and instead of the Fire TV they'd give me 2 extra months of service
I had already paid for the membership renewal and they sent me a similar message...but instead offered the router and a dedicated streaming IP.

But when I told them I was not interested except for the router and streaming stick...they said it would take between 3 and 4 weeks to get new stock before they can ship them.

Told them I was in no rush. They said OK...and asked me to pay the USD 10 shipping free...so I did. Now it is just a waiting game.

But they were very courteous and friendly with their responses and responded pretty promptly when we corresponded.

Also, no where on their site does it say they offer streaming IPs in Canada. It's US and UK only.

Guys, I got a reply from them. The shipment are delayed because of the situation in China.

I was given the option to either:

1) Wait for the devices
2) Receive a refund and cancel the service
3) Get 6 months server additional in place for both devices.

I opt for (1)

When did you pay for shipping? Trying to get a sense if shipments are being done in order.

Did you submit a ticket, and was it updated to show they shipped your items? Or, did you just wait in silence?

I would imagine a dedicated streaming ip would be far more reliable. Otherwise you will be forever hunting for a working server when a shared one goes down. Quite a few VPN companies offer dedicated ip’s for streaming. They do have the disadvantage of only working in one country. TorGuard used to, and maybe still do, have a dual streaming ip product for the U.K. and the USA.

Anyway, various VPN companies have their strengths. You choose what you need. Seems to me that streaming from Canada is every bit as good as from the US, at least as far as Netflix goes. In many ways it’s better. Of course Canada doesn’t have Hulu, but it does have Crave and Crave+TMN. The situation is very different than a few years ago. Finally, for streaming there are smart DNS products which are cheaper, easier and almost as reliable (except for the dedicated up streamers).

I followed up with support, got a reply that supply is limited due to situation in China. Was offered service extension in lieu but I said I'd wait. They said check back in 4-5 weeks, but mine stuff arrived about 10 days later.
