Question

Hello,

I'm wondering when a more dedicated streamlined app will be updated for the Amazon Firestick..  I have a dedicated streaming IP (Chicago server) and sometimes my speeds vary greatly using the 4K Firestick and the Torgaurd app, where it will pause my streaming content quite frequently .. If I turn off the vpn I can get speeds around 275ish (I have gigabit internet) with vpn on I get 60 to 70 ish with my Dedicated streaming IP .. which would be fine, but I think the Torguard app is causing resource issues on the 4k Stick that might be causing pauses while streaming in different applications.. (maybe because all the updates the fire stick gets to the os) Never happened with the Nord vpn App (their application was designed specifically for the Fire Stick and its updated frequently, though in my opinion, Torguard has the better service)

When can we expect more frequent updates to  Amazon Fire Stick App and Android in general?  

Thanks!

What version of the TG app are you running there? did you try using AES-128-GCM on different ports? NordVPN I believe use IPSec only on some devices, we use OpenVPN which in our eyes is far more secure - don't forget that your FireStick does not have the best CPU either so streaming at 4K using high encryption will take its toll on the CPU.
