I have worked in China for most of my career so I've been using VPN service for a while now.
Nowadays with so many APPs and governments demanding your personal information, VPN really is not just for accessing facebook and youtube from China anymore. I think it's an important service to have no matter where you are.
ExpressVPN is rated the number one service in many reviews and it was what I used for the last few years. Problem is, it is kind of pricy especially during my 'down time' during which I've only considered VPN service a novelty.
So I’ve recently switched to Ivacy. So far so good. I get to watch Netflix from other regions and its' been fast and reliable, pretty smooth so far.
It is something I defiantly recommend for all my friends.
