They have horrible customer service! Their product maybe cheap or good but the customer service is terrible.Deal has now ended. DEAD.

This is NOT an internet service provider.

Here are some alternative VPN services that have large selection of servers (worldwide)proxy.sh is $5 month

Setting up BT software Vuze (used to be call Azureus) to only use VPN connection (won't connect if VPN connection not available.)
Here is a tutorial of it.
http://wiki.hidemyass.com/Tutoria...hrough_VPN
Here's a tutorial for utorrent: http://wiki.hidemyass.com/Tutoria...IP_binding
(Remember to un-check make new firewall rule in utorrent settings/prefs)

Enter the interface identifier into the field next to "Bind to local IP address or interface" in the settings.
Note that the interface identifier is named different on every system, so make sure to check how exactly it is called on yours.
In their example, it is "eth15" for OpenVPN, "net2" for PPTP" and "net1" for L2TP.

Make sure the checkbox next to "Enforce IP bindings even when interfaces are not available" is checked;
otherwise it can happen that Vuze keeps downloading without using the VPN.

If the Vuze setup is done correctly, it will ONLY use your VPN connection. If you didn't login to your VPN service, Vuze won't work.


Rock...I bought it and went back without linking through here and price was back up to $3.33 per month. I now check and it is back down again. Get it while you can as it may change again.

I've used these guys for about 5-6 months now. I live in GA and connect to the FL server. My ISP is Charter and I usually speed test between 50-60 Mbps on average without VPN enabled. When speed testing to the same ATL servers when connected, I'm still able to hit 45+ Mbps.

Right - so when does the DOW and S&P come crashing down? Because they look just like that... hockey sticks.

Can 2 computers use the same account at the same time?
Their TOS says 3 connections (devices) can be used simultaneously.

There is a (hopefully rare) situation when using VPN *could* in fact increase the speed. This is if your ISP is throttling certain types of traffic (over some ports or by doing deep packet inspection). They can't do that when you connect over VPN since they couldn't see inside the VPN tunnel.
It isn't increasing your speed. It has to do with compression algorithms if I am not mistaken.

FYI, I have had their service in the past and I don't like it because their VPNs IPs are shared among the pool of users. This means that every secure site you visit, you will be flagged because other people have used the same IP to visit the site. On the good side, it is extremely easy to use and for the most part, I could connect to each of their gateways at full speed.

No VPN is truly anonymous because the IP you use to connect to the VPN is always logged.
This is what precisely prevents them from tying any IP's traffic specifically to any one person. Several logged in users share one IP.

That being said, they say they log nothing; however, DMCA claims can be brought against the IP addresses they own and this is mentioned in their forums for users torrenting with US gateways.

I like them. They have a nice windows clients that can port forward and fix dns leaks.

I am getting fed up with the lack of PC game and Blu-Ray rip options on usenet. I think I might give this a shot.

A few reasons I can think of for possible uses:
1. Secure connection when using open wifi (such as at a coffee shop).
2. Anonymity such as during torrent activities.
3. Bypass network restrictions/firewalls.

As for the utorrent question, no, VPN will become your sole internet connection once connected so all services will utilize it.
Unless you do your downloading in a virtual machine which is connected to the VPN. This is also another added layer of security. Attach to a VPN on your host machine and a different VPN on your virtual machine to daisy chain them together.

Is there a way to make it so just uTorrent uses the service and not the rest of my computer (like web browsing)?
I am also interested if this can be achieved.

From their FAQ:
Quote :
Can I use Private Internet Access with my router?
You can use Private Internet Access with any router that supports consumer based VPN services. This would include OpenVPN, PPTP and L2TP. Some routers that are known to support these are DD-WRT, Tomato as well as PfSense. Please remember that we are not responsible for any issues that may arise when flashing a different ROM to your router. Please proceed with caution.
There's a step by step guide in their forum.

You would have to install a virtual machine and connect to your VPN in ther to do your downloading. You then use your host machine for everything else.

Difference is bitcoin has gone up 6x in value in three months. Here's the 3 month chart for the Dow. Not anywhere near similar. Dow has gone up 9% in the same amount of time.

If the Dow and S&P ever went up 6x in value in three months I'd definitely cash out.

Not a bad idea! I wonder if this would impede or enhance your anonymity in anyway?

Coincidentally I've been using this for just a few days, selecting it after considering a number of other VPNs. Setup is pretty easy (a bit tricky with my Android phone but the support forum is quite good.) Super simple for Windows/OSX. I tend to use various open/guest wifi services throughout the day so this made a lot of sense for me. Also I plan to use it to watch extra-regional content.

FWIW the other options I was considering were all roughly twice as much for an annual subscription, even at their normal rate. I wanted this kind of VPN because keeping a PC on 24/7 to run my own didn't appeal to me.
