New VPN server in Italy: Welcome Milan!
OVPN has opened its first data center in Italy: Milan. We hope that it'll provide our customers located in Italy better speeds and unlocked streaming content.
As always, the VPN server in Milan is physically owned by us and contains zero hard drives, is completely log free and has the same security features as all of OVPN's data centers.
