VPN Comparison: Express vs Nord

Hi All, decided to take a look at how Nord and Express compare in terms of speed (in CH) and thought others may be interested.

Notes:
Tests 1 & 2 where done conected to speedtest.net Zurich iway server, test 3 the optimal determined by speedtest
ExpressVPN connected to new servers far faster 0-30 seconds with NordVPN 30-60 seconds
ExpressVPN apparently proved they do not keep logs (at least in Turkey)
It may have been my mistake in not refreshing/clearing everything, but Express once said it was connected to an SA server but in fact it was a USA server.
Nord VPN allows you to pick only the country and then automatically selects the fastest server for you, Express VPN allows you to pick the city, but it may be difficult to identify if other server could suit you better.

What do you want to do with it... ?

Most big name companies are wise to most VPN providers now, Netflix etc.. It's a cat and mouse game, you might get AppleTV today but not tomorrow..

Of course if it's for privacy, I dunno, I use PIA, you can even pay anonymously with random gift cards.

VPN PrivateInternetAccess is now owned by an Israeli so most likely compromised. Get out ASAP.

Teddy Sagi's Kape buying US digital privacy co LTMI
19 Nov, 2019 12:22
LTMI owns Private Internet Access, which provides VPN services to over one million customers.
Network security software company Kape (AIM: KAPE), controlled by Teddy Sagi, has announced the proposed acquisition of US company LTMI Holdings in a cash and shares deal worth a total of $127.6 million.
LTMI is the holding company of digital privacy company Private Internet Access, which has over 1 million paying customers for its VPN service. PIA employs 65 people, one third of them in research and development.

I recommend that PIA customers cancel, and switch to another VPN service. Mullvad is, in my eyes, the best
