    Hey Guys,

    I’m making the move to Chengdu from the U.S. on Monday and was wondering if anyone knew of a good VPN that I should use on my phone and computer? I know some VPNs stop working so I figured I would ask what everyone else is using and having success with before I arbitrarily choose one.

    Thanks in advance!

    Check out SocketPro, it is really fast. Run by a local guy, too.

    Any idea where the server is for socketpro?

    Everyone seems to be talking about Shadowsocks these days- also a proxy, which is supposed to be faster and more reliable. I haven’t figure out how to set it up myself yet.

    Other than that, most everyone seems to be using Astril or Express.

    ExpressVPN is recommended. Can use up to 3 devices. So far no complain.

    Amazing – that site is legally hosted in China – it has an ICP number. Is this a government approved proxy service?! 😉

    SocketPro is run by a local and yes he has a legal ICP licence for the site, I’ve been a supporter and customer for over a year now.

    I used to advise ExpressVPN to my friends, but I have not used a VPN for over a year, since I switched to ShadowSocks.

    To answer your question about the server, there are 28 servers spread over Singapore, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, US, Taiwan

    Plenty to choose from. Korea servers seem to work best for me on my China Telecom connection. Some of the servers are optimised for Unicom, Telecom or China Mobile.

    Yes, free app on Android and a paid (18 RMB) one on iphone.
    Works on all platforms. If you need any help, there is support available.

    I checked the IP address and Socketpro is now run in the United States (thank God). It gave me quite a fright when I found out it was based in China; I sometimes do read politically sensitive content. And with the effort the government tries to crack down on VPN services I hardly think it’s government approved.

    expressVPN works wonders for desktop and mobile.

    For PCs, Smart Phones, Routers, expressVPN or Astrill are both recommended.

    But for smartphone only VPN Master is strongly recommended since it has optimized route for Hulu, BBC, Netflix etc.
