    overplay is def a good vpn, but i’ve heard there are some areas where the website cannot be accessed. it’s kind of weird since there’s servers located in some of these places. just wait until a certain time when the server becomes avail during the day, that’s what i did.

    Hey Stu! I think it’s actually very reasonable once you try it out. I’m from Canada, and I must say that the server is very fast and I feel really secure. Give it a try and you will wonder why you weren’t using it!

    Got servers all over the world and it’s super stable. Definitely like overplay vpn. Have been able to access tons of content in Asia, and am starting to use it in India since I have a report coming up.

  14. Thomas M said on January 4, 2011 8:18 pm:

    Overplay VPN offers servbers in a ton of different countries and it’s easy to use. I travel throughout most of Asia, and am usually very concerned about my privacy. I used to be very concerned with sharing private work information, but Overplay also allows me to have unlimited bandwidth at amazing speeds! Never have to worry again when sending/accessing info over your computer or smartphone! Have already used this service for 6 months, and will definitely continue to use after contract is up.
