We enjoyed testing HideMyNet VPN. The service was reliable and the network section of the site is very helpful. Allowing you to easily browse through their VPN servers. View bandwidth usage, open ports and VPN server addresses for PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN and HTTP Proxy. We only wish the service offered a free trial or low cost test account. Regardless we like HideMyNet VPN and recommend the service.
