    cool.. may play around with it during the holidays

    unrelated: so for a while I've been connecting one of my VMs with a 'normal' NordVPN server... recently I tried out on of their dedicated 'P2P' exit servers on my torrent box... very nice, I'm impressed, no slow down what-so-ever

    i signed up to PureVPN during the sales

    5 years for USD69 (~ A$95)

    have had some issues with US Netflix, but haven't had much of a chance to play with it

    my purevpn subscription is coming to an end shortly and im looking to see alternates.

    a work friend mentioned ivpn, has anyone here used it, or what seems to be the census on the best to buy at the moment?

    My PIA often works with Netflix (accidentally).

    ExpressVPN claim they work with Netflix.

    I recently started using ExpressVPN and US Netflix is working fine for me :). Before that I was using Vanished VPN but performance seemed to be a bit hit and miss.

    Hear more about trust zone - appears to be a contender - anyone else got something to discuss?

    I use Private Internet Access. Has a Melbourne and Sydney server, plenty in the US and others scattered around the world. I have no problem accessing web sites. It is also easy to setup on routers or pfSense.
