    Year, I'm thinking about it as well but at the moment I'm using free VPN services. 40 $ per year sounds ok for me.

    I also paid £15 for 12 months but am allowed to use on 5 devices so guess i got the plus, no problems here though would happily go for it again if a similar offer comes up when this expires.

    Hi, i actaully did a test using MIAMI VPN, and got

    http://www.speedtest.net/result/4220463384.png

    do you have same servers to select for Miami, im wondering if you have more or you get faster speed as yours is premium, the euro ones always seem fast, just the us ones, trying to use NBC live sports, struggles when its peak time here, like evenings and when matches are on
