      • British?

            @Yummy: The way a British band spells their name does not mean that it's generally acceptable to spell the word that way in Great Britain.

            As another example, "Korn" is not acceptable spelling for the word "corn" in America.

            Obviously if computer was spelt with a 'c' in Indonesia it would be pronounced "chomputer".

            Mmmm… chomputer.

    Bought this VPN last year. Its slowed right down since, lucky to get 20mbps on Sydney server and overseas are often woefully slow, not much good for streaming. But i suppose as a freebie may be ok for some.

    • Thunder vpn is better I think

      • Been using Avira VPN from last year’s promo it’s going pretty good so far I usually use us washington

    • I also noticed the slower speeds over the past several months.

    • I haven't had any slowdowns with the Sydney servers, 90 something mbps no problem. Are you using the IKEv2 protocol?

      • Ill have to double check but i think just the default settings on the android tv app..

        • If you're using the Windscribe android app you'll only be using openvpn and not IKEv2. To use IKEv2 you'll need to manually setup strongswan.

          • @Mibo: Odd. My other VPN provider which also uses openvpn gets 80+mbps on the same android tv boxes. Its only windscribe on them thats poor. Maybe windscribe are intentionally slowing via openvpn/androidtv.

            • +1

              @Xizor: I don't have an android tv so I wouldn't know, but Windflix servers are slower than normal servers. The Sydney Koala server is fine on the desktop, https://www.speedtest.net/result/8253437542

              Edit: There's a new android tv app, maybe try that. https://www.reddit.com/r/Windscribe/comments/bmnml3/wanna_tr...

              • @Mibo: Thanks for the beta link. My tests were on nvidia shield and vodatv android tv boxes. And sorry was a typo when stated windflix only meant normal windscribe servers. Ill try again tonight.

              • @Mibo: Tried tonight and got between 35-55mbps so better than last time im tried. Still i flick over to my primary VPN and got 80-110mbps. So Windscribe via android tv app at best i'd say is hit n miss, does not seem like there is service quality parity to desktop.

                • @Xizor: What's your primary VPN?
                  Also, how are you getting 110mbps? Do you have a business NBN plan?

                  • +1

                    @Mibo: PIA. I'm still on Telstra Cable, ain't moving until they force me (or i move and lose it).

      • IKEv2 is PRO feature

        • It's free on the desktop client.

      • Speed difference is too big to be explained by protocol.

      • I'm using the default settings on the windows app and getting over 90mbps on the Australian server.

    • Is it ok for torrenting?

      • Yes, but you’re obviously limited to 50GB. Speeds may be a little slower, but different people report different things so it may depend on your location and the location of the server you connect to.

    Thanks. Upgraded my free 30gb month plan to 50gb :)

  • They will keep increasing it until it gets unlimited.

  • Worked, thanks

    If I sign up to the free version, would that allow access to BBC iplayer or do I need to upgrade to Pro?

    • i'd also like to know how well iPlayer works with this

      • +3

        It works for me on the UK server. I'm on the lifetime pro plan but the same server is available for free users so it should be fine.

    • I doubt it.

      • Bbc I player doest work.

    • +2

      Just use DNS4ME for BBC iPlayer it works perfect

  • +1

    So this is not a permanent free 50GB like previous deals? 50GB for 12 months and then it goes back to your previous monthly bandwidth?

    • I had a free 61 GB on my account for 12 months and its been a lot longer than 18 months since I signed up and I still have the 61GB, I think they say 12 but it doesn't actually expire

    How reliable is windscribe’s privacy meant to be? If I kill someone does windscribe give away my data and I also get charged for illegally downloading game of thrones?

    • +2

      Game of Thrones, nobody won't bother manhunting you for that, killing yeah not great idea, Windscribe may keep logs and track back to you. Nothing is 100% secure.

      • +7

        Windscribe may keep logs and track back to you.

        I use a VPN to connect to Windscribe, so they don't have my IP address…

          Okay… First I'll access the secret military spy satelite that is in geosynchronous orbit over the midwest. Then I'll ID the limo by the vanity plate "MR. BIGGG" and get his approximate position. Then I'll reposition the transmission dish on the remote truck to 17.32 degrees east, hit WESTAR-4 over the Atlantic, bounce the signal down into the Azores, up to COMSAT-6, beam it back to SATCOM-3 transponder number 137 and down on the dish on the back of Mr. Big's limo. It's almost too easy.

          They have 2 servers called Windflix that work for Netflix US UK. At least on the paid plan..

            @Xizor: do you or have you had success with the other free to air UK TV?

      • -1

        makes it kind of useless then…

        • It works for Prime video though.

          • +4
          • @huntingforbargainz: Is the US catalogue on Prime much bigger than what is available in Australia?

            • @serpserpserp: Prime Video region is linked to your amazon account region, not your location/country ip address like Netflix, via most access methods i believe. However if i recall correctly some have reported they can use certain VPN's on a PC desktop browser (only, APP or mobile wont work). YMMV.

              • @Xizor: Yeah, Prime Video doesn't work for me. YMMV though!

          • @huntingforbargainz: Are you sure? Prime doesnt work for me but Netflix works using Windflix. I have a paid account

      • +1

        Any chance you could try with BBC iPlayer page?

        • yes please, I'd like to know results on this also

    • +1

      It does work with Netflix US and Canada. Download the app and select either one. They are WS app profiles are titled ‘windflix US and CA’. Little sluggish but gets the job done. Plus, going from memory if you setup VPN from their website guides you can basically access anything… but haven’t done this in a while so may have changed.

      • +6

        They seem to be for the paid version

        • Ohh ok. My bad. Makes sense.

    • I will try for HBO service tonight for GOT

      • Get the 10 day trial for Foxtel Now. You'll be able to watch the final two episodes.

  • What happens to my 30gb/month plan (forever) if I go to this 50gb/month plan (12months)?

    • If it's the same as last time, it will over ride it. If you have the unlimited one, then don't use the code. However I heard they were getting rid of unlim :(

      • Ok you got me; do tell.

        • Tell what? How to get the unlimited one?

          • @Zazer:

            However I heard they were getting rid of unlim :(

            do tell

  • Thanks, now I can watch Netflix of American content.

    • Netflix only works on the paid WindFlix servers. Though I remember someone said it worked on one of the US server as well, don't know which specific one though.

  • free is free… :)

    • Not always.

    Anyone know how the security or how they handle privacy compares to torguard?

  • +1

    Not sure why anyone would use this vs unlimited offerings? Seems like a waste of time

  • What is the PRIMARY reason people are using a VPN for these days?

    • Torrenting - most torrent sites are blocked in Australia. Can sign up for free stuff multiple times if all they use is an IP tracker etc. Netflix and other streaming from other countries. Can watch videos blocked in australia - which is some YouTube videos. Useful for the dark web. Good if you like just the general privacy of a VPN. I could go on but you get the idea. If you've never needed one for any of the above then it's probably not beneficial to you.

        "dark web" - LOL, that term is so dated and lame

        "come to the dark side"
        "dark arts"

        "seedy web" would be more appropriate.

        or "dweeb web"
