is amplifi the right choice for me?
i need a good vpn solution. i live in germany but i have to work a lot in romania.
i need a vpn service to watch netflix germany and other stuff.
i was thinking of buying the ampliFi HD Mesh and a amplifi teleport for traveling.
am i missing something?
Hi @jolle-knolle - it does work
How well it works depends on a few things:
- what you are trying to use it for
- the upload speed and latency of your home (Germany) network
- the remote (Romania) networks you are connecting to
To live stream Netflix from Germany you will need a good upload speed in Germany and a good corresponding download speed in Romania
If you control both networks it works great
Shared connections, like at hotels, sometimes don’t have good enough download bandwidth or low enough latency to support streaming
In those cases you might need to download videos to watch instead of live streaming
The user interface of Teleport is also NOT user friendly and hotels with difficult portals and unfriendly DNS setups can make it hard to get Teleport working
Right now you cannot connect to a hidden SSID
AmpliFi claim to be working on improving the user interface, but there is no timeline communicated for when those improvements will be ready
So you may experience some frustration getting Teleport to work, but when it does work, it works well
@jolle-knolle Another thing to consider, AmpliFi Teleport only has a US model.
