July 28, 2021 China VPN test, at around 10pm last night when I connected to ExpressVPN’s Lightway-UDP via Telecom 4G and WiFi, I found that my most commonly used “Lightway-UDP protocol + USA – New York server” method was no longer available. I tried 4-5 US servers without success. Finally I switched the protocol to “Automatic + Official Recommended Server” Hong Kong – 4 and I was able to connect quickly and successfully. Today I would like to run a more comprehensive test of Lightway-UDP to see what its current state is. The test will be done on a Windows 10 device.
The July 21, 2021 China VPN test will be conducted today on ExpressVP in a MacBook (MacOS), 2 weeks after the last Mac test. In that test on July 5, it was found that there was a network firewall upgrade and blocking period in July this year, only its strength was not very strong. The impact on some VPNs and wall tools, including a number of VPNs appeared to run away from the situation. This test wanted to find out if the server connection and speed of ExpressVPN had returned to the situation before the blockade after about two weeks.

We hope that this test will give you a more comprehensive understanding of the real usage of ExpressVPN in China.

June 8, 2021 VPN China test, EpressVPN in the latest IOS version 11.5.0 (21189) officially added Lightway protocol, which is subdivided into Lightway-UDP and Lightway-TCP. this is a very positive information, because in MacOS, Windows Lightwy-UDP performs very well in terms of server connection success rate, timeliness, and speed. This test is intended to be a test of ExpressVPN’s latest support for Lightway-UDP and Lightway-TCP for IOS. It should also be noted that ExpressVPN’s “Auto+6 servers” and IKEv2 protocol connections are still available and in good working order.
June 4, 2021 VPN test in China report, today I will be testing ExpressVPN’s officially recommended “Automatic + 6 servers” VPN on Windows, Mac and iPhone devices. It should also be noted that ExpressVPN’s APP is not the only option to connect in China, but also through Lightway-UDP, IKEv2 and even OpenVPN-UDP. But since today is the eye of the storm for the big blockade, I’ll keep it simple and see how well ExpressVPN is connecting to each server today and if there are any connection difficulties, speed drops, etc.
May 30, 2021 VPN Netflix test in China, today is my first time in using VPN to test Netflix. The test is different from my usual VPN test. First of all, any VPN server for Netflix support is usually not a big change in the short term, the only thing to consider may be the speed problem (such as whether the lag, whether you can watch 4K and so on), and this speed problem can be done completely through the daily [VPN daily speed test] to complete.
