March 7, 2021, today is the third day of China’s two sessions, this test I want to test the speed of YouTube, SpeedTest, Netflix Fast in my Macbook using the officially recommended “Auto + 6 servers”, of course, I will also I will also use SpeedTest for testing. Also, you should know that ExpressVPN can currently connect via Auto, IKEv2, Lightway-UDP, and Lightway-TCP (Bate version). Due to the large number of servers required for cross-testing multiple protocols, I cannot test them all at once, but I will use the principle of sequential cross-testing to test the connection of various protocols and devices for mainland China.
