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.

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.

Re: VPN Comparison: Express vs Nord

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.
