    "This service included a dedicated server/IP in the US. The service was okay for the first two weeks or so though the speed tests indicated a 30 to 35% decrease in download and upload speeds when connected than when not connected."

    "I recently decided to give kodi a try, but I heard ISPs are looking for that type of traffic, so I decided to get a VPN service to keep that type of traffic private. TunnelBear was super simple and easy to use and provided a great VPN solution. Best part is it was free to try out and only $5-$10 a month (depending on the plan) to increase my data allocation to unlimited. now my data is hidden from advertisers, hackers and my ISP!"
