Note I am not talking about streaming from the usual suspects like Netflix etc., rather from on line tv channels.
The throughput is ok from within NZ and even from Aussie but whenever I go beyond that like London, New York, Bangkok etc I struggle to get between 2-3 Mbps (according to Speedtest.net tests)
In spite of a case logged with my ISP since early October the problem is still unresolved, even though I keep calling them to find out what progress has been made in resolving the issue.
They say there international group are looking into it and they will call back but never do.
A neighbour (IT lecturer at Auckland University) suggested using VPN.
I came across this website just last night for PureVPN offering 2 years of VPN and 2 years of SmartDNS for US$2.08 per month (payable in one lump sum of about US$50) for a short time.
Has anyone used their service, or have had problems streaming using PureVPN or any other VPN for that matter?
Is this the right way to go to overcome my streaming problem until my contract expires with the ISP or they resolve their peering issues?
There may be other benefits as well using a VPN service.
