Today ExpressVPN upgraded all 4 devices, this test ExpressVPN is only for the officially recommended method: “Auto+4 Servers”. Because this morning ExpressVPN has the latest version update for Mac, Windows, and Android, this upgrade should only be for users in China, if you need to upgrade, you can click here to see: ExpressVPN latest version installation package(zh), in addition, IKEv2 protocol is still able to connect, although I will not test today! This part, but I’ve tested the connection privately and can successfully connect over the wall. If you want to know more about the IKEv2 protocol testing, you can refer to the test report from the day before yesterday: ExpressVPN 3 Device Test in China-20200909.
Due to the recent large fluctuations in ExpressVPN connections, it is very clear to conclude that the Chinese network firewall has ramped up. Today I’ll be running a test of SurfsharkVPN in Windows 10. First of all, I will test the app direct connection, if the connection over the wall is not smooth, I will add OpenVPN GUI to do it, if the app connection is good, then I will not test the manual configuration of OpenVPN Gui, you can refer to the test results of the previous issues.
There will be a test today for Windows 10, Macbook, and IOS. I’ve been worried about a massive upgrade hit to the Great Firewall between late September and early October. That outage last year was really kind of scary, very, very many VPNs and wall-flipping tools were blocked en masse. ExpressVPN was blocked, and just rolled out a new workaround, but was immediately blocked again, and after the block, they were rolling out a new one, and then blocked again. This constant trolling went on for a total of 20+ days before it slowly started to calm back down.
Today’s test iPhone/IOS phones on ExpressVPN over mobile 4G networks. Since I started testing, I don’t think I’ve done any tests specifically on mobile 4G networks. For today’s test, I’m going to focus on the server’s “connection success rate” and “server connection latency”. I hope this test will help readers understand how well ExpressVPN works with iPhone/IOS and how well it connects.

It’s already September today and time really does go by fast! Have you all brought more to your studies, work, investments, entertainment, and other behaviors this year by going over the wall? The hesitation epidemic at the beginning of the year may have been more shut down when by flipping the wall did you gain more perspective on the epidemic than you did on people. Then came the Hong Kong incident, the US-China trade, the US net-clearing operation, and so on. There are many things inside the wall you can not get the latest multi-directional perspective, but after the wall, you will have equal access to information as anyone in the world, but you have to slowly learn and develop to recognize the news, analyze the news…
I’m going to be testing ExpressVPN today, and the test is still divided into two parts, firstly, the officially recommended connection method: “Auto+4 servers”, and secondly, the IKEv2 protocol for wall testing. I’m going to use the IKEv2 protocol to connect to the wall, and I’m going to test the protocol on as many servers as possible.
I’m still following the same test method for Mac, but I’m using a different method for IOS, which is a horizontal test of the server connection success rate. I didn’t have time to test all the servers, but this kind of random testing can show the percentage of successful connections. I hope that this test will be of some value to you…
