Should mention that although Viewquest calls it a Vpn, it's actually nothing like a typical VPN ....

On the plus side though, their service handles all countries at the same time where a regular VPN would require you to connect to appropriate country, one at a time.

Is that actually a good thing, all countries at the same time? Seems strange.

I would at least like the option of being able to choose my tunnel, but there must be benefits to have all-on at once.


It's not actually a tunnel, that's why. They just selectively proxy the sites they list as supporting to appropriate countries. As said, it's not a VPN. They're just calling it that because they accomplish one of the things many people purchase Vpns for - bypassing geo-blocks for streaming.

Hello!

I work for ViewQwest (if any of you frequent the hardware zone forums you may have seen me there :) ).

Happy to answer any questions about our services or even just Internet in general.

I hate proxies, whats the point in providing 200Mbps or more when all the traffic is being proxied?
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

As you have noticed, we run a pretty tight ship here. Our regulars prefer it that way (although makes it harder on the Mods, but the regulars pitch in to keep it clean). Thanks for understanding. - Moderator
