I use express vpn it works well with telkom internet. I have recently connected to safaricom fibre and now express vpn not working. Gave 20mbps at safaricom router but after vpn tp link only getting 1 to 2 mbps - unable to watch uk netflix now as constantly streaming and us netflix not loading at all - is safaricom blocking express vpn overseas servers? any advice would be appreciated!
Hi guys would really appreciate advise - has anyone else experienced issues between safaricom fibre & express vpn?
You can try use the VPN on the devices rather than on the router. I use Express daily and never had a problem.
Ok thanks will try and setup vpn on appletv
Unfortunately apple tv does not support vpn software so have to route it thru wifi router - I am in touch with Safaricom but so far no joy…
I had the same issue . I decided to switch to a smart DNS service instead. If you don’t mind privacy and are only concerned about accessing geo restricted sites, go for a smart DNS subscription. Speeds are barely affected if at all.
Thanks. Yes Express vpn has suggested their MediaStreamer which is DNS - the only problem I have is to change it per each device so jumping between amazon fire stick and apple tv becomes not so seamless.
Yeah. That’s the problem with Smart DNS. If your router allows it, you can make changes there and you won’t have to tweak any of devices’ network settings. That’s what I did.
