Title: Nord vpn
Post by: Arriba on Sunday, June 21, 2020, 08:16:07
Subscribed to this due to the blockages we're getting with live football via IPTV so hoping this resolves it. My questions are.. what are the best server's to use and also what other benefits can I get from this VPN
 I'm a novice and not familiar with vpns at all. Thanks

I use IPVanish which automatically connects to what it considers the best server - I usually get connected to a Dutch one!

It offers more security to any online transactions you may do plus they canít track you down when visiting all those dodgy websites!

I have to use my VPN to access my SkyBet account and also the Lottery!

I use ExpressVPN its great but not cheap at $13 per month (about £10.50) but you get no slow downs and can put it onto 3 devices at the same time including mobile.

It doesn't work for iFollow but workd great with Kodi.

Thanks gents. Get loads of options of servers to pick so finding that confusing. Trial and error I suppose.

 I'm with firestarter Tans. They do the same as yours but it's hit and miss so I've bought a sub to be more secure. Been with them for 2 years and it's been flawless until this weekend.

I am as it was bundled, + plusnet as ISP.

", if you have Sky, TalkTalk, Plusnet, EE or Sky, the High Court has a banning order making ISP's block the streams during PL matches."

so my friend will see later on the scouser derby

Depends on the services you use as to whether you need a VPN. I've not needed one for ages

I was previously using IP Vanish but wouldnít work with I Follow, however changed to Express earlier in the year and I was able to use it for Ifollow, so unsure if something has changed or when you last tried it?  Although a the moment donít matter

Speedify is pretty good, too. Free

Nord has a server picker tool on their website:

https://nordvpn.com/servers/tools/

But quick connect should be fine. Try it first and see how you get on.
