    Would anyone recommend using the service through a VPN or would that not really be advisable/necessary?

    You have to make a test and see the difference. Ask Nord vpn for trial and see.

    Yes, but I'm more looking for advise whether or not to recommend my potential clients to get a VPN or not, due to the "grey" area IPTV is in... What do you resellers advise?

    If you are shure that your service provider is blocking iptv traffic and if you dont use google dns 8.8.8.8 then the solution would be VPN. For total privacy and cripted connection VPN is a must have.

    When using VPN you will have half of your bandwidth as vpn creates "two way trafic toonell" so to use vpn you need to have at least 2 mb upload to use vpn for IPTV

    If you route ALL your traffic through a VPN (acting as a gateway) then yes, you will not reach your normal internet speed. No matter host fast the VPN is.
    This is because:
    - VPN encrypts all data (in normal cases) and sends it over => more CPU usage,
    - Data has to be decrypted on the server side => CPU cycles at the server,
    - Data has extra headers, more meta data is added => your packets become bigger.
    - Your VPN is probably not hosted at your ISP, in a nearby point-of-presence like most big websites (Google, Facebook, Cloudflare, etc all have caches at your ISP or near your city, to speed up transfer). You might be sending your data from your home (China) to a VPN server in US of A to access a website in Europe. This increases latency and path length to send data. You basically make a detour.
