What's happening, guys, it's Adam here. Now, not that long ago, I made a video on ExpressVPN. And
you guys seem to enjoy the video, but you had a few questions. So I thought rather than answering
all of those questions individually on comments, I'd make an updated version of the video that will
cover streaming blocked content, it we'll take a look at the torrenting side of ExpressVPN. And
also, we'll be looking at the speed capabilities. A lot of you guys also found the discount link
that I put in the description last time very helpful. So once again, I've put that down below.
So if you click on that, it will take you to the best possible deal they've got at the current
time. Now ExpressVPN have a lot of different locations around the world that you can connect to
the internet from. As you can see from this map, every single.is actually a location you can use,
they have over 3000 different servers, which spread across 160 different locations, and that
spans 94 different countries.
Now personally, the main thing that I use ExpressVPN for is to unblock
streaming sites like Netflix. So to show you an example of how that works, I'm just going to come
into Netflix and I'm browsing at the moment on my own internet connection without the VPN active. As
you can see, if I search for the title, the flash, it will not show up in the list of titles that
I can watch because it's not available to watch in the UK where I'm browsing from. So all we
need to do is we need to come out of Netflix connect to a server location that's anywhere
in America, because I happen to know that flash is available in America.
And now when we come back
into Netflix and we search for the title, you will see that it does actually show up in the list and
Netflix now thinks that I'm browsing from America. Also, you can play this in full HD from start
to finish with no buffering issues whatsoever. This is because ExpressVPN actually offers some of
if not the fastest speeds in the industry.
So no matter which VPN you're using, you're always going
to see a slight drop in the speed compared to your base speed. Now as you can see here, my usual
base speed from just my sky broadband provider comes in at around about 64 megabytes per second.
And when we compare that to the speed that we're getting, when we're connected to express VPN
that is coming in at 59 megabits per second, believe me, this is a very good speed.
only a drop of around about 8% is actually the fastest out of any VPN that I've tested. Now this
is the speed when connected to a local server. So if I connect to a more distant server, the
speeds are expected to drop further. However, with Express VPN, they don't really drop much
further at all. When connected to the server in New York, which is a long way away from me,
it's coming in at 55 megabits per second. And when using the VPN for everyday internet
tasks, and even heavy things like streaming, you're not going to notice that difference at
all. And when it comes to running speed tests, you don't actually have to do these online.
Unlike other VPN Express actually has its own built in speed test where you can test all of the
servers at the same time. It's a great process. And what you can do once you found the ones that
you like is you can select the star next to it and this will then put those servers into your
This list will then stay there every time that you log into your VPN. So that from
now on, you can always find the fastest service from your location. Now another thing that VPN
's are often used for is torrenting. Now when you're torrenting, you need to select the correct
protocol. Some of these are better for speed and some of them are better for encryption, which is
obviously what you want when you're torrenting. However, ExpressVPN has an automatic setting.
And this will select the best protocol for you depending on which situation you're using the VPN
for. So if you're not a very tech savvy person, you can leave this on the automatic selection
and then you don't have to worry about it, it will select the right protocol for you. Now
I use uTorrent to do my torrenting. But you can use whichever torrent program you like. But just
to show you how smoothly it runs with ExpressVPN. I've selected a torrent here from our website
which I want to download and this is one of the episodes from the original Flash Gordon series.
Now as you can see, it automatically loads it into uTorrent for me, and because ExpressVPN has
a very good speed, you can see that it will start the download immediately and it doesn't take long
at all to get the job done.
And whilst This is downloading, you can be safe in the knowledge that
your connection is private and fully encrypted at all times. Not even ExpressVPN has access to your
data, your logs or your browsing history as they operate and no logging policy. This means
that not only is your torrenting activity safe but it also remains private. So all in all,
express VPN is definitely one that I recommend. If you do have any questions you can always visit
their love support and chat to them where they'll get back to you very soon with a suitable answer.
Their staff are very knowledgeable and there's a link in the description below and that will
take you directly to their website.
