I have been using the VPN service; StrongVPN for the last 3 weeks or so and have been very pleased. I've only had 2 connection drops in that time, and in each case was able to reconnect immediately. Throughput has been excellent. I've seen no discernible overhead cost to using their VPN service over just running raw. And compared to HotSpotVPN, with which I had many many problems, StrongVPN has been spectacular. I'd recommend them if you're looking for a good, easy to use, VPN service.
