March 5, 2022. It is the first day of China’s “Fifth Session of the Thirteenth National People’s Congress”, and this time of year is China’s VPN block period. There are roughly three more severe lockdown periods in a year, in March, June and October. Occasionally, it happens occasionally. I remember that the March blockade last year (2021) and the year before (2020) was not very serious, and it passed in roughly 2-3 days. During the blocking period, most VPNs only experienced some server failures and a slight slowdown. But this lockdown I feel worse than before.
This test is carried out in Win11, if there is spare capacity, it will also be tested in other devices. But usually, the server connection status of each device in ExpressVPN is the same, but different service providers will have differences in the unofficial recommended server part.
I couldn’t take the test during the day due to work, so I didn’t want to take the test today, I was too tired! But the A/B in my head is always fighting, and finally I gritted my teeth for a test today. Why test ExpressVPN at a critical time, because it can definitely be regarded as the vane of China’s circumvention industry. “Spring River Plumbing, Duck Prophet”.
The daily speed test will help you understand three things:
1. The success rate of VPN server connection in the tested device;
2. The time limit of VPN server connection in the tested device;
3. The speed of VPN after successful connection to the server in the tested device;

Summary: When I was at work today, ExpressVPN experienced connection difficulties and slowdowns in Macbook and Windows, and the experience was not very good. I also mentioned it in a previous post. But testing the 6 officially recommended servers at night feels pretty good. Even under the double influence of the evening network peak period and the March blockade, it is really gratifying to maintain such a server connection success rate, server connection speed, and post-connection speed.
For Unofficial Recommend servers, I tested some US and UK ones. Some servers are available in the US. This is about the same as usual. Servers not listed above indicate that I have not tested them, you can try them yourself. Due to the large number of servers, it is impossible for me to test them all.
At the same time, as shown in the figure below, ExpressVPN issued an announcement as soon as the blockade occurred, reminding the situation and telling that it was already being repaired. This responsible attitude is still commendable. This result in the evening shows that the technical team of ExpressVPN has achieved a certain effect.
