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