    OVH VPN Beta

    Got an email about the OVH VPN beta, thoughts? Seems somewhat expensive in my opinion, especially with the speed limit and being restricted to one IP address (at least that's how I understood it).

      Overpriced

      Greetings of the day!!!!

    • Interesting if they would require sending scanned ID for VPN customers.

      They required me to provide the same when I took SIP service from them (but not for dedicated server). I assume it's so they know you gave them real information and they can chase after you if you make a big bill and don't pay, for SIP you pay at the end of each contract period for your phone usage in that period. Looks like vpn works with similar billing.

    • Just any run-of-the-mill VPS + SSHuttle works good enough for me.

      +1 Much better prices, probably better performance.

    • @liamwithers best of luck.

      You'd be much better off getting an MKS 2G or KS 2G, setting up your own VPN server, and splitting the cost with a couple people (admittedly, finding people to trust is difficult). It looks like on top of the limited speed, they also charge per user and make you commit to 1 year.

      On the plan on the right, it seems weird that they cap the Internet<->server connection to 30Mbps, but cap the server<->user connection to 100Mbps

      @MannDude said: SSHuttle

      I read the dev page and am still not sure about how secure it is (i.e. is it more like a socks proxy or more like a VPN). Thoughts?

      @vedran
      I certainly do. I'm just referring to dial-up speeds to emphasize the difference between OVH's 10mbit/s speed compared to what you can get elsewhere nowadays.
      Maxing out a 100mbit/sec DSL with some of the well-established VPN providers is something you can do for less money.
