Brought down by hubris.
Buffered once marketed itself as a perfect VPN for accessing Netflix’s international library, and even went so far as brazenly putting a Netflix logo on its web page. Apparently, that got Netflix’s attention, and at the time of writing this article, Netflix is blocked on Buffered, although the VPN provider claimed to be working on a solution. Still, it’s a fast VPN for other services. Running the speedtest. net benchmark indicated a speed of 18.3Mbps from that server, and impressive speed nearly rivalling that of ExpressVPN and NordVPN.
The Windows client is very simple — there’s not much to it other than a basic country selector. We do like that it gives you a live speed and data indicator, as well as a ping indicator for the different servers (though it would have been nice to see current load as well). Sadly, there are no mobile clients for Buffered, which is a major issue. You have to configure mobile clients manually using the OpenVPN app, which means no easy server switching.
