Free VPNs have their place, but their performance in the virtual world tends to leave them choking in the wake of paid packages every time. UnoTelly VPN is one of the cheaper providers but is, first and foremost, a site-unlocking service with VPN as an optional extra. This shows in both its performance and speeds. By comparison, HideMyAss VPN is considerably more expensive, but its undercover-agent-style location masking makes it more than worth it. While both these VPNs can get through network blockages around China and even smuggle out some captivating TV via Netflix, neither can really hold a candle to Express VPN’s floodlit performance. With literally thousands of servers throughout the world, Express VPN offer unrivalled speeds and reliability, no matter where you are situated. Their pricing also puts them at the middle of the road while offering users a definitive fast-track and supporting almost every gadget available, from Windows to Linux! Express also offer the rare and beautiful router app, which enables you to shroud your whole home in a safety blanket.
