Did some speed tests on a 50 meg line.I had an issue during peak times in CT, I sent them a ticket and they suggested express vpn connected to uk or netherlands. I haven't had any buffering issues from time I have used a vpn.
Connected to UK - 12 Mbps
Connected to SA - 40 Mbps
Then I tried both on the streaming service. Connecting to the SA server actually seems to work better. I figure it's because the server pulls the international traffic at whatever capacity it can, and you'd be at almost full speed because you're only pulling local traffic.
Connecting to the UK server means your line is downloading international traffic at much reduced speeds.
