Show HN: My weekend project, tracking the services you can't have in Canada
I started out using OpenVPN as well. However, the speed and latency was always very bad even though my VPS connection is fast.After spending too much time trying to figure it out, I decided to just spend just $55/year and use StrongVPN. Added bonus, I can use StrongVPN on my iPad/iPhone!
4. To see if I could improve on the torrneting speeds without paying ExpressVPN prices, I tried CyberGhost, which is erroneously dubbed the torrenting VPN. They are the worst of the four, IMO. More expensive than Surfshark with Surfshark's slow speeds, and very slow server switching for some reason

China Cracks Down on VPN Services After Censorship System ‘Upgrade’
I was in Shanghai last month & in previous years bypassing the firewall was not too much of a hassle. When I arrived in Shanghai for the holidays this year my old VPN provider didn't work anymore, plus they added DNS poisoning and bandwidth throttling. I actually upgraded TO StrongVPN, which seems to be one of the affected VPN services now.My conclusion was that it has become effectively impossible to run a western IT-oriented business from Shanghai
CyberGhost VPN has suddenly become very unstable
It hasn't always been like this, when I first paid for the VPN subscription, around April 2020, it was fast and I rarely ever experienced any issues, to the point where I just allowed CyberGhost to start a VPN when I booted up windows as it felt (more or less) like I was on my regular WiFi.
