Private Internet Access beta users are now able to access Next Generation VPN servers on the PIA network using out beta desktop clients and mobile apps. To do so, make sure that you’re on the latest beta version and navigate to the Help section in Settings. There, you’ll be able to switch between the “Current” and “Next Generation” network options. Once you select “Next Generation” your VPN server list will automatically depopulate the current VPN server list and repopulate with only Next Gen servers.
