VPN services

Is there any free VPN services that have an app? I've used a few that work really well but it's only for a trial period. Are there any decent VPN apps that are completely free?

Spotflux has a free service for iPhone/iPad. There's also no bandwidth or speed limitation.

It worked extremely well with a speed of about 17Mbps, but the ping's slightly higher than normal ( 200-250ms).

Maybe you want to give it a try.

I notice it says "try" for free. do you have to pay after a certain period?

I'm using it for two months now. At first, you get a trial to test their premium service ( blocks ads, lowers traffic etc. ) and after that, it's .. well, i din't notice any differences.

I used mostly Pandora, tested Beats, watched Netflix etc.. It's pretty reliable, as long as you have a good network connection. It's set to on demand after you installed their profile which I turned off because it was quite annoying and sometimes the iPhone couldn't establish a connection. But this was most certainly because of bad reception when I was "on the road" :-)

It's one of the best services so far, been testing several ones. No one was perfect, either connection problems or unstable connection / bad speed etc.

Spotflux is my top rated at the moment, simply because it's free/extremely cheap and offers everything I need without limitation.

And as I mentioned above, the trial's a month of premium subscription.

Good luck and best regards.

I would suggest Spotflux since its totally free and has no mb limits compared to many other. Enables Netflix US and Hulu if your abroad.
Good Stuff

As far as I know, they only use USA based servers.
