    So that $us107.55/$156 for 3yrs? (after the cashback)

    because it's the same price using GETNORD coupon.

    How are people finding the speeds? I just asked my colleague who is getting only 25% of his speed when connecting to the Melbourne server from home.

    Just tested it on work network and the results weren't great.

    Before VPN
    900 Down

    NordVPN to a Melbourne and Sydney Server
    140 Down

    PIA to Melbourne Server
    426 Down

      114-116 mbs down typically at home, connected to their Brisbane servers I believe I sit at 104-108 on most evenings. Seems the biggest hits I take in speed are due to Telstra congestion. I found some times you need to disconnect and reconnect every few hours so your not on a server that is full again.

      •  

        Thats great to know you're getting such good results. Probably worth the gamble at such a low price.

          The only real down side I have with them is that some game servers see me as being American when I connect while my VPN is active and send me there. And Netflix detects that I’m using a proxy when I configure the VPN through the router. But other than those two things i have no problems with their service.

      My home NBN is a 25-50 package in Sydney.
      This morning
      Without VPN - 47
      Using Sydney servers
      With Cyberghost - 40
      With Purevpn - 38 to 43
      Both acceptable to me.

      When I used the free 7 day trial, my speeds were similar to yours. It varied from server to server, but I never found one giving me more than 30% of my full speed.

      PIA Aussie servers get me my full speed. Others do too but I haven't tested all of them. PIA is definitely faster than Nord.

      Having said that, your speeds are super fast.

      You have gigabit broadband?

      •  

        I work at an education institution so that will explain our speeds. When at home it's back to FTTN slowness.

    •  

      I get 100% throughput on Ivacy in Sydney which was a "lifetime" sub for $60 USD, but it doesn't work for Netflix.

    •  

      I got awful speeds with Nord, sometimes 1-3mbps. I paid the extra few bucks for PIA.

  •  

    Starting last night when you click on 'quick connect' it goes to US servers not Oz…not sure why. Update: I just rebooted PC to see if that had any effect…seems to be back to normal now…must have been something 'stuck' in browser settings or Win10 locale…anyhow all good now!

  •  

    so if i got the 3 year deal a while ago and created a new cashback acct today will i get the cashback on my previous deal

    Works out to be US$21.56 when you stack with promo codes SHOPBACK and 3ynordvpn

    What does that mean? So I’ve gone through shopback and added 3 year plan. Which gives a 75% discount ($107.55 USD). I can enter SHOPBACK or 3ynordvpn in the coupon section but it doesn’t do anything extra. The codes seem redundant as already got $107.55 (which will be Cashback 80%)?

    • +1 vote

      The code is redundant from our perspective as the price at purchase remains the same but I believe from previous deals using their code helps with their tracking of the cash back, so best to use the SHOPBACK code to make it as easy as possible for tracking.

      •  

        Giving it a go now.

        I was a bit hesitant as Shopback says “only use Shopback approved coupons” so was trying to figure out if there was a way to do the 3 year plan without the automatic discount and apply the “Shopback” one instead. Your explanation makes sense.

    •  

      Yes, adding the discount code(s) doesn't appear to change the total cost??

      Do we actually get a cashback from ShopBack?

      Has anyone actually tried this all the way through because from memory the 3 year cost has always been $2.99 a month.

      •  

        I’m trying it now. Shopback says to wait 2 days for purchase verification. There’s a 45 day money back guarantee so it’s worth the gamble

      •  

        Done. Shopback has registered my purchase. Pending, waiting for validation of my purchase and ~75 days to receive cashback

      •  

        All done. According to ShopBack I'll get around $120 cashback which is not a bad saving!

  •  

    how is the current accessibility/speed when using for netflix US?

    •  

      want to know this too

    •  

      I recently went through this. Wanted Nord for the sole reason of Netflix US. Tried a few different US servers but the videos on Netflix US wouldnt play. Kept getting an error message right before the content would start streaming. I could browse the US library but not watch anything.

      Their support was very fast and helpful with suggestions but nothing worked for me so I requested a refund under their 30 day cooling off period.

      They were extremely helpful and admitted there were a few things they needed to iron out with geo unblocking for Netflix, ended up getting the full refund a few days later. YMMV

    •  

      Just connect to Nord Aussie servers. Netflix will for some reason load up the US library.

  •  

    Highly recommended. Very easy VPN and very effective

  •  

    The speeds are normally half. I get say 40mb/s and get 20 with VPN so not too bad

    •  

      This is fine if you only use it when you need it. My VPN is on 100% of the time, so I'd have to deal with half the speed I paid my ISP for. That's a waste of half my bandwidth.

    •  

      You don't need to settle for half speeds with some other VPNs, e.g. I max out my connection on PIA. Worrying for existing NORD customers that they're trying to increase customer numbers at the expense of server speeds.

  •  

    not heaps fussed with speed. mostly just a stable connection that works.
    How is nord for this?
    I recently went from pia to ivacy. Ivacy app poops itself if i dont limit torrent connections. Also doesnt along with my plex/vnc server. PIA never had any issues.

  •  

    Are there any Australian speed comparison for Nord vs Express?

    Still waiting on my Cashback from the deal last time, Reported missing cash back with Shopback and haven’t hear anything. Might cancel before the 30 days

    • +1 vote

      How long have you been waiting? Shopback says that it takes 2 days for purchase verification and 75 days to get cashback

      • +1 vote

        It has been over 2 weeks, it doen't even show under 'tracked' so I have no idea wheather or not it was tracked in the first place. Like I'm happy to wait 75 days but so long as I have some sort of indication that I will be getting it back

    •  

      same been waiting for 2 weeks

    • +1 vote

      They want to prevent this exactly. They don't want you to get the cashback and cancel the service :P So usually waiting period is more than the cooling off period.

    •  

      Just did it now, my cash back took about 1hr to come through ~120$.

  •  

    Waiting for cashrewards to match this

    Is it good for torrents?

    Scummy company with horrible support. My parents signed up to their one week 'FREE' trial special through the iOS app, not knowing that you have to go into the VPN settings and turn off 'auto renew' to avoid further charges. After that trial was complete they automatically had something like $140 deducted from their account and they were locked into a 1 year plan, all with absolutely no intervention from them. They knowingly advertise the trial as being 'FREE' and then in the fine print state that if you don't opt out, you'll be charged for a year in advance, it's predatory, especially considering the app is free so ANYONE can download it.

    NordVPN's support is absolutely hopeless and the blame just gets shifted from department to department before we reached someone who tried to completely absolve NordVPN from any responsibility by insisting that this is all Apple's fault, despite the fact that Nord are the ones that set up trial themselves. It was like talking to a brick wall, they had no sympathy, all they care about is money.

    That, combined with horrible international speeds and the fact that they pay thousands of Youtubers to promote their horrible service means I won't be going near this company ever again.

    Beware.

      all companies work this way these days… but its a good warning to others.

      •  

        I agree that this sadly isn't uncommon, but I find it crazy that anyone (including kids and old people) could download the app for free, accept the 'Free Trial*' in the app and effectively lock themselves into a 1 year plan.

        I probably wouldn't have fallen for it but they take advantage of people who aren't on the lookout for stuff like that and that scares me. What's worse is the complete lack of remorse, I wrote an initial email to their support team outlining exactly what happened and all we got was a short response saying "oh that's not our fault, we can't help you".

        I don't like ranting online but I think in this case it's justified.

    •  

      The sad truth is that people that aren’t at least a little bit tech savvy shouldn’t touch anything associated with a free trial. If you need to enter payment details it’s almost guaranteed to have autorenewal

      •  

        AFAIK there was no need to enter payment details because it's all through the app store (with a linked apple account). Order was made on an iPhone XR so it would have simply been a Face ID prompt during app setup, and then after a week it took that money from the account.

        Perhaps a good lesson to not have too much money in an app store account at once I guess.

        I've since told my parents to be very, very careful with what kind of app store prompts pop up, to avoid something like this again in the future.

    Guys!

    Nord is horribly slow

    Slow torrents and slow netflix

    Go with expressVPN if you want bandwidth!

  •  

    On Nord right now; Telstra Cable — 112/4 without VPN, 38/3 with VPN… connected to Melbourne servers :(

  •  

    Last week I got Ivacy lifetime subscription for around AUD35.. I get around 80-90% speed compared to without VPN.. US Netflix, Hotstar etc works fine, no issues so far..

  •  

    I just bought this through Shopback but realised that I had put in my already registered NordVPN email. I didn't have a subscription though. Just did a trial couple months back. Will it still work or should I refund and try again?

  • +1 vote

    Using Shopback means i'm identified, and i don't want to be identified when i'm buying a VPN.

    The Phantom

  •  

    After all the comments about speed, and the positive comments about Ivacy, I jumped on the Ivacy website, opened their chat and asked the operator where I could get a LTD from. He came back with Stacksocial straight away. This is the first time I've experienced such honesty upfront from any provider, so I signed up immediately (long time user of PIA). I got setup in 2 mins and streaming Netflix from the USA (something I have not been able to do with PIA). So thanks OP for making me look, I think I ended up the winner :)

  •  

    Which one is best with torrents? ExpressVPN, PIA or ivacy?

    •  

      Torrents are supported by most these days. Speed will vary by provider and server.

  •  

    Silly question, I have getflix at the moment, what is nordvpn good for? Can I watch US netflix with it?

    Also why do people use nordvpn? What is it for?

    •  

      Pretty much as you described…hiding IP for streaming services…Netflix, Hulu, Prime (US) etc. Others use it for anonymity for cough "questionable downloading" or making sure their tracks are hidden from prying eyes from advertisers, ISP's, megacorps (Google, Apple, Amazon etc) who use your data to serve up ads to you.
