I had a co-worker, who flashed a card going this route: Hotel Wifi -> VPN -> VPN Land point -> Site ->Stratix switch -> Card. It was Go Live day, testing 9am and he thought he'd go ahead and flash that during breakfast. Sometime around 1pm it finally finished.
I also had a look at these lifetime subscriptions. I decided to get a 1-year subscription at VPN Land formerly known as Blacklogic VPN. Via StackSocial just $10.
I just connected and speed is very good. So far all looks good.
Of the lifetime membership options, VPN Unlimited throttles torrent speeds and VPN Land cooperates with law enforcement.
Tiger VPN is the clear winner in terms of speed and anonymity between the available deals on the site.
