  • I agree with a few of them, but why is IPVanish #7? I have used HMA, and a few others on your list, and several not on the list and find IPVanish by for the best. They offer supurb connections, outstanding customer support and I have never had any issues living overseas and only using US based sites.

    Thanks for your time!

  • ExpressVPN, VPNArea, NordVPN are also good

  • My recommendation is HideMyAss. It’s a very good VPN service provider. I’m using it and it’s never disappointed me so far. Thanks.
