New VPN server in US: Welcome Seattle!
OVPN has opened an additional region in the US: Seattle. We hope that it'll provide our customers located in US better speeds and unlocked streaming content.
As always, the VPN server in Seattle 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.
