Looking for VPN suggestions
Good day all!
I am looking for a VPN provider that would have a lot of IPs in the Philippines.
I have looked into HMA for example and they only have 11IPs there, so need a suggestion for a provider that has significantly more than that.
Already using Windscribe, but need other suggestions.
Bonus points if the provider also has a good chunk of IPs in Mexico as well.
Any help and push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
Ivacy has only one server for Philippines, too. At least the IP won't change to another one on my mobile app. WS only seems to have 1 Phil server, too. AirVPN doesn't seem to have any Phil servers, unfortunately.
MystVPN might be your best bet, due to the sheer amount of nodes/servers participating: https://www.mysterium.network/ / https://www.mysteriumvpn.com/
As a comparison: Ivacy has probably around 3000 servers in total iirc.
"Ivacy has over 3455 + servers in 100+ locations worldwide.".
Myst has around 12000 servers and 135 locations. Reliability/speed might be a different story due to the nature of MystVPN, though.
SUrfShark seems to be amazing, but no lifetime deal. It can play through anything, including many servers in Mexico.
Owned by Nord, the umbrella corp (aka Tefincom aka Tesonet)
They lied about their relations for a very long time, and just recently announced the "buyout" which was known for a long time already.
Extra bonus points for literally selling your data as soon as you enter the page(trackers everywhere), fake promos and closed-source clients with confirmed spyware.
tldr; stay away.
I feel bad for anyone that genuinely daily-drives VPN's they seen an AD of.
VPN's have a shit ton of money(even the legitimate ones) because all they do is resell the bandwidth really. But yeah, you have to trust them - there is literally nothing stopping such providers from snooping on your traffic.
And popular & questionable VPN's like Express, Surfshark, Nord etc etc etc
do not have my trust. They are owned by untrustworthy companies (2 or 3 companies to be exact) which all have pretty serious backgrounds in for example selling intelligence to Israel like Kape does.
A handy map with most of the popular providers and their ownership.
Do you need "fresh IP's" for a specific task or just a lot of IP's in general?
I need a bunch of IPs, they don't need to be "fresh" :-)
I will check out surfshark, might be what I need.
In a closet, or better yet underground.
I second myst too am too hosting node of my own as well as using it the speed and reliability is a bug ? but am damnn sure it has the biggest pool of nodes/location available as a vpn
