StackSocial has lifetime Windscribe VPN for $49.99. Use WINDSCRIBE20 promo code to drop price to $40. Delivery of voucher code is instant.

https://stacksocial.com/sales/windscribe-vpn

Note: I tested speeds after installing VPN, with 100/100 service I received 113/116 speeds, so doesn't appear to be any degradation in speeds, at least not during my test.

WINDSCRIBE THROTTLES ALL TORRENTS TO 10KB/S FOR PAID PRO MEMBERS!!

Purchased this Lifetime subscription a year or two ago and once I went over 500gb, they started throttling ALL my torrents to less than 10kb/s, which as you all know, is USELESS. If you torrent at all, you're better off paying for a 2 year VPN from ELSEWHERE. The company has not replied to my complaints.

Depends on how recent. Their TOS [windscribe.com]states "you have the right to obtain a full reimbursement, given that your request is sent within 3 commercial days from the subscription payment. "

Nope. Missed the 3 day window. Been at least a couple of weeks Frown Can't complain, tho. Been using the service in different ways (OSMC, Bittorrent, etc.) and am fairly happy with it...so far...

I use it with a 100 MBPS connection and could tell you that that is not true. Maybe you should check your settings or connect to a different/closer server if you're experiencing speed problems.

Painfully s-l-o-w. If I was a paid customer I'd have canceled by now... but I'm using (trying to use) one of their free 60gb accounts.

Many congratulations to those of you who get good speed with this service. Meanwhile, I'll just keep my torrenting to overnight when it can churn for hours and hours.

EDIT: Current speedtest results: "Best Connection" = 2.74Mbps, Miami = 3.99, US West = 3.24
Windscribe off = 68.4Mbps
