IPVanish, the most popular VPN app used by Fire TV users, has announced the completion of a network upgrade that they say will increase server network throughput by 2.5x. Starting back in February of last year, IPVanish began upgrading their server network cards from 10 Gbps to 25 Gbps and now enters 2021 with, what they claim, is the fastest VPN in the world. If you tried IPVanish in the past and weren’t impressed, especially if it was more than a year ago, it might be worth giving the service another try. Their current plans cost $4.99 for 1 month or $39.99 for 1 year. While IPVanish, unfortunately, doesn’t offer a free trial, they do offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on their annual plan only if you cancel within 30 days.

The biggest new feature brought on by the new 126.96.36.199 software update, that rolled out to the Amazon Fire TV 3 earlier this month, is the highly requested ability to match the device’s refresh rate to the content’s frame rate. That’s not the only new feature because the update has also added the ability to configure the device to use a Network Proxy. The new options are located in the Fire TV’s hidden developer menu.
