  1. I looked around KB and this forum but still couldn't find a clear description. So a couple of questions: 1. If I buy a 'residential IP', say in NYC, will all my traffic be always routed via this IP address, regardless of where from I connect to the TorGuard network? Or do I need to connect to a specific address you give me to get this 'residential IP' service? 2. Is it true that with 'residential IP' I only get one simultaneous connection? Does it mean I can't connect to the specific IP more than once, or are all other TorGuard services blocked while I'm using this 'residential IP'? 3. What if I'm somewhere (say, Europe/Spain) and need a local connection for speed/torrents? Get another account/service? Or are there other options? 4. I'm currently in Spain, using AirVPN. When connecting to NYC (their partner is *.us.leaseweb.net) I normally see ~56 Mbps on fast.com (but streaming doesn't work). Is it reasonable to expect similar numbers when using 'residential IP' from TorGuard?

    Fastest speeds for streaming

    Thank you so much! I'll definitely try this.
  3. So I see TorGuard now provides 'residential streaming IPs'. Sounds very promising. However, if I just need streaming, and because most browsing is now over TLS, I don't need any VPN encryption at all (which coincidentally is the bottleneck with 99% of routers). So ideally I'd pay for, say, an NYC residential IP address, and use my Ubiquity EdgeRouter-Lite (which is not speedy at all when used with OpenVPN and can't use hardware for L2TP encryption), so I'd get the maximum possible speed. My question: Is it possible to configure some sort of PPTP-client for TorGuard with no encryption whatsoever?
