What country do you live in and what country will you be using the VPN most?

If you'll be around North America and Western Europe as well as Hong Kong, you can try Windscribe's 50GB/monthly free-to-use service, with coupons around to upgrade the capacity some more. They have decent VPN apps for Windows, iOS, and Android.

Private Internet Access works great for me.

I am travelling from the US to UK, and I would like to watch US netflix and access some business documents etc. I've checked some reviews on pcmag.com or vpnmentor.com they say that nordvpn so far is the best choice

I did windscribe pro for a 2year subscription and have enjoyed it. It is easy to use, works on my computers and phone. It will occasionally have issues with bandwidth, but it isn't common.

Can't you just use Opera?

Built in no-brainer VPN for bypassing those pointlessly useless ISP blocks.

Panda VPN works for me in most of the cases.

PIA is awesome. It's also a known VPN provider, and most video and gaming services blacklist the egress points, likely because legal reasons. Which reduces the usefulness of PIA significantly.

Would you know what their speeds and connections are like around the Pacific? I’m particularly interested in purevpn access in Tokyo/Osaka, Hong Kong, Taipei, and Manila, as I move around between these and West coast cities.

I've been using Unlocator for MLB.TV (and it happened to work with Hulu) but it's not working with Netflix. So depending on the service it might be OK or not.

hmmmm when I was in Govi, I had to use a vpn to do online banking, PIA (private internet access) worked good for me

one odd thing was, when it was not running, I would still pull netflix over there with no issues

Not sure, but i use connections all over the world, I'm based in eastern canada, and generally max out my 50Mb connection.

I figure that you are mainly originating IP in various countries. I'm also interested in accessing Asian servers to bypass local ISP/host restrictions. How do you max out your 50Mpbs? That sounds like you're also into HD livestreams.

Steaming won't use 50MBits. That's into "I'm downloading something" territory.

That or a server, but I would let SSKing say so.
