You should have switched earlier, I was looking for a good VPN with PayPal support for somebody last year, but good to know now, didn't know you couldn't torrent with TunnelBear.

Question. is there a way I could keep my games off of the VPN? I.E - iRacing and ESO Online.. especially the iRacing, I have sweet pings and very little jitter so I don't want to hose it up.. not to mention I want to be able to stream and not have delay due to VPN.

Just disable the VPN while you're streaming?

Yes! This actually makes me happy! Been using PIA for a year now and it works incredible! Although yes I will miss all your Tunnel Bear ads.

I've have actually used PIA well playing games, and it has worked. Although I have never it used on purpose well gaming, and when I remember I usually turn it off just in case.

What sucks is TunnelBear will continue to get people signing up from watching older LTT videos.

Maybe in the new Ad Spots for PIA, specify that that the Tunnelbear endorsement is no longer. This way if someone sees an older video and a newer video they will know to stay away from Tunnelbear.

I have used PIA for years and recently signed up family members. Later I thought "oh, I should have had them use Tunnelbear", glad I didn't.

Hopefully PIA can keep up with the increase in subscribers. From what I understand they do add harware as needed

Well sometimes I will browse while streaming.. i.e. - there are 8 minutes allotted to qualfiying and if I am not going to qualify then I'll play around on the web.

Well this is still new news.  You can bet it will fade off eventually.  It will take a while (remember squarespace?) but it will happen (again, look at squarespace lol)

What is wrong with these low post circlejerking people.

 

You like PIA? Good.

 

Just because they switched sponsorship doesn't mean the previous sponsor is bad.

It just meant the sponsorship is ended.

 

The purpose of ads, is to attract more sales, you worried about people subscribe tunnel bear because they no longer a current advertiser?

 

Holy shit man... talk about entitlement.

I think so but that's the thing, if they don't advertise often and with memeabley good branding, it won't stick forever :P

OK I have an actual question... what are the US vs Canadian pricings?  Is that $2.50 they show in CAD or USD?  This really should be obvious but they don't even say...

The problem is the Sponsor became bad, they got in bed with McAFee, that is why they are not a current sponsor.
The "previous sponsor" should be worded as "The Sponsor Previously was great"
