Though ExpressVPN claims the fastest VPN services, the speed will be very slow in low internet speed countries like China. Generally access to video streaming will be very slow compared to other sites. Unfortunately this is is situation with most other VPNs and ExpressVPN is definitely one of the best options available. With situation changing dynamically in China you should have a clear expectations before buying VPN service.
Chrome and Firefox Extensions
Recently ExpressVPN also released extensions for Chrome and Firefox browsers. Once installed you can connect to VPN from the icon next to the browser’s address bar without the need of launching the app separately. The browser extension screen has similar features like the main app so you don’t feel any differences.
- Apps available

The yearly plan of ExpressVPN will cost around $100 per year which is costlier than many other VPN services offered in China. But with 30 days money back guarantee, we recommend to give ExpressVPN a try. You can simply get the refund if the service is not working for you.
