Can anyone suggest one that’s consistently good? Or if not consistently good, has good customer service 😏

If you want to watch uk tv why don't you try tvmucho?

ExpressVPN is excellent. You have to pay though.

Another user of ExpressVPN and can recommend.

We use Getflix.

I suggest you to try first NordVPN. it is much cheaper, but for security rated as the best in many sites, btw Express and Nord are rated like #1-2 and they have customer care available via live chat 24/7

We use witopia, they've been excellent for us for years, good online chat service for sorting out issues eg installing on new devices. You can choose from dozens of locations, depending on what you're wanting to watch / do.

We use nordvpn and it's been great so far.

We bought another router and subscribed to a static VPN company. There’s a yearly subscription of around $70 and you need to have the separate router ‘pinged’ to have the best service. It rarely goes down and we can choose whenever we want which host country to use. Right now it’s the UK, but both our Netflix and Amazon work in the UK and US. Only occasionally does Netflix pick up the VPN and not work.
The customer service has always been good for us when we’ve had to contact them.

We use vanished which seems good so far

Another Nord VPN user here. Been happy with them for the last 12 months. Haven't really needed to test the quality of their tech support at all, which I guess is a good sign.

I use Tunnel Bear and have had no problems whatsoever.

Does anyone know what has happened to the live 24/7 chat service at Express VPN? Having an issue (first time in ages) and there only seems to be an email contact now...

I recently switched to SmartDNS and it's worked really consistently for me.

EXPRESS VPN was ok for me although recently bbc iplayer and Sky Go have blocked it a few times. V frustrating!

DavidBowiesNumber1 Mon 30-Oct-17 15:09:00

I use VPN Robot (free) and have never had any issues

IamSerena Thu 09-Nov-17 05:01:24

Turbo VPN is great in conjunction with an android box (provided your internet supplier is good)

huha Thu 09-Nov-17 05:30:56

I use unblock us and have never had an issue.

I have been using Hola (free VPN) but recently I've been finding that various UK and US sites automatically block VPN users (including BBC iPlayer)

Do any of the paid for providers on this thread get around this problem, or is technology catching up with us?

ksb76 Wed 15-Nov-17 00:49:58

I just tried tunnelbear and the BBC iplayer rejected it. Have others found that it works?

SummerLightning Wed 15-Nov-17 02:02:43

Tunnelbear used to be reliable for me for watching iplayer, but won't let me in any more.

Is this for watching uk tv? If so, apparently bbc are upping their game on detecting and trying to block vpn users.

LadybirdsAreFab Wed 15-Nov-17 02:43:18

We use, it has a monthly cost but customer service is great.

Yes SmartDNS is allowing me to watch BBC iplayer.

DH knows the name of the company... note to self to ask in the morning. We just changed from a party line to a dedicated line and it’s great, no hiccups at all when streaming - £10 a month though! IPlayer and Netflix are working again after 3 weeks not so we are happy!
