Hey guys

Just a quick question. So i have been using astrill vpn for several months now and getting very good speed out of it.

I am about to renew my subscription but had one quick question..

I get an option to buy a private ip for an extra $10 a month. What does this mean? Would it increase the speed i am getting? I am really clueless here.

Cheeers

No don't think it will increase your speed.  At the moment you get a ip that a lot of other people use, that ip could be blocked by some sites due to other people doing the wrong thing.  Also I think the private ip's are less likely to be attacked (not that I have ever had a problem).
