Our Review:

SurfEasy VPN is a Canadian based VPN service that started up in 2011 and is now owned by the folks from Opera Software, the company behind the Opera browser.

Like most products reviewed here they provide both a free and paid service. The free service is data capped to 500MB per month and does not have the browser anti-tracking capabilities of the paid service but is not otherwise limited.

The SurfEasy VPN network covers 13 countries including USA, Canada, the UK, Australia. The network speed was disappointingly slow but otherwise this is a solid service from a reputable company and can be recommended for casual users who can live with the 500MB monthly data limit.
