VPN Service Providers Of Every Kind

VPN Services is simply a way to mask what you are doing online, sometimes its to get through ISP firewalls, or you want to cover your tracks. Sometimes you want to encrypt your BitTorrent traffic so the ISP doesn’t block it (KEMS), other times you want to get around government firewalls and use different services and visit certain sites. I for one use VPNs all the time so I can access US only services and register as if I am there, like Hulu Streaming and other media services.

I split them into two recommendations, ones specific to Torrent VPNs and the other just VPN service, but the Torrent VPNs are also good for VPN usage. VPNs do have an effect, they do slow down the connection just slightly but with some providers it slows down only 5% and with others it slows down 25%, for fast VPN connections I would go with StrongVPN but for BitTorrent specific VPNs I would go with BTGuard.

Best VPNs


VPNs or Virtual Private Networks are the best solution to any firewall, they can technically get through any blocking solution out there but there have been a few that manage to make it a little bit more difficult. People use VPNs for different reasons, I for one use it to access the torrents, get to all the sites I want to, and accessing sensitive sites such as banks or other institutions from wireless networks or public areas. I would recommend you click here if you have been getting a proxy/vpn access error to know how you can bypass it.

The Toughest Internet Internet Filters I have Faced:

  • Oman
  • UAE
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Sudan

First Choice: Strong VPN

  • I’m using PPTP service with but they have a large variety of VPN options to choose from
  • Several cities to choose from as core cities
  • Integrates with any operating system, iPad or phone
  • High speed, usually with VPNs they slow down your browsing but with Strong VPN their speeds are consistently high
  • Has gotten through every firewall I have tried
  • Their support is solid and I have never had issues with their service
  • Their prices are very reasonable with all the different options, and if you don’t know what to choose then just ask them

Second Choice: HMA VPN

  • They have a software based VPN
  • They are currently beta testing PPTP service which I have tried and its pretty good
  • Relatively fast connectivity
  • Sometimes has issues connecting but overall very good
  • With the software based VPN it has had issues with one or two firewalls but with the PPTP service it was pretty good
  • Software based only works with Windows but the PPTP works with Mac, Windows, Linux and other communicaiton devices

If your looking for a solid service and you know what you want then go with StrongVPN, another option would be HideMyAss Pro VPN. But both will do the job to get you where you want securely.


Just to address the questions, they both work with Hulu and relatively fast, also they work with the Netflix and ABC App on the iPad so your able to watch US shows on your iPad. So both connections facilitate streaming from the US perfectly.
