sorry - i misspelled that name - it is mallvad.net


their IP addresses are located in the Netherlands.
you can use their software or your own OpenVPN or PPTP.
and you get a free trial to test it out.
i would caution anyone using a canadian service as we are currently
fighting a bill that would allow full random citizen surveillance for
no reason at all ..


And the addresses located in The Netherlands (endpoints) is a perfect reason NOT to use this provider since no other country in the world has (relatively speaking) more lawful intercepts than The Netherlands.

Really. Sad but true. All traffic is logged by law, and kept for the duration of 2 (two) years. The bill you talk about for Canada was passed here a couple of years ago. Police are known to (illegally) conduct
search operations in these logs.

I would look for a vpn provider with endpoints in Sweden or (better) Switzerland.
