Hello!

We are currently with Vodafone NZ for our broadband. Not covered by their ultra-fast network yet.
Looking at several solutions for Smart-DNS (like Unotelly, Unblock-US, etc.) and VPN solutions.

Someone on another part of this forum recommended VPNSecure.me because they provide both.
I have found some reviews on the internet but most of them were quite old.

Does anyone have more recent experience with these guys?

We need Smart-DNS for streaming content from US/UK/France.
VPN is for private browsing and P2P (Torrent).

Happy to take other suggestions too.

Cheers

You said you wanted other suggestions and didn't specify your platform.

I don't use the Astrill client on the PC, I found it buggy. I set up a standard VPN connection using windows VPN features. I imagine a mac would do the same. It's supported.

I use UnoTelly on my streaming boxes (HTPC, Amazon Fire) but on my laptop I use WiTopia - and have been for years.

My fault entirely. I should have said so. We are on Mac OSX for computer and iOS for all other devices, plus Apple TV and Panasonic smart TV.

We only need VPN service for the computer though.

I second WiTopia for VPN. I have a feeling it was recommended to me here cool

 

Been using it for years without a hitch.
