    Used to use ExpressVPN for 3 years but recently it stopped working in Dubai so I switched to hide.me. They are based in Singapore, 0 logging policy, much faster, 1 subscription gives you the ability to connect 10 different devices and easy router setup as well plus they have the new WireGuard protocol which is the fastest and more secure

    Offcourse. They kept telling me to try different options like choosing Automatic protocol and setting the region to Armenia. It would connect and work for a few minutes then it would be connected but no internet until I reconnect. I tried working with them for weeks but it was all in vain. So I lost a few months of my subscription and just forgot about it and made the switch. Not a single issue since then. I get the full speed of my ISP even when using the hide.me VPN which is 600 MBPS Down/200 MBPS Up

    i see. well, afaik, dubai is notorious for its strict and heavy censorship. so sometimes there's not much the vpn providers can do. express, with its advanced stealth servers, is one of the best in this league. they always implement new techniques to address those issues. unfortunately it's kinda cat and mouse game. sorry to say this but in a country with such strict censorship, i suspect hide.me might fail soon too. :doubt:

    I have EkspressVPN & have had for years, they are a rock-solid company, with good speeds, security & customer care.:thumb:
    I also have ProtonVPN & NordVPN rock-solid and all three VPN-Services, regarding security is well placed on a map:thumb:

    There are VPN providers that work well since years in UAE and have implemented certain workarounds to make things working on a full speed. You will not read details about them on any blogs, because either people simply don't know or they want to keep things for themselves. Also what works should obviously not be discussed on a public forum. ExpressVPN has a massive marketing approach, less technology focused. They work by sales numbers and won't accommodate "UAE issues" based on my experience. We can continue the conversion through PM but not here.
