Overall Satisfaction with KeepSolid VPN Unlimited

Being a freelancer gives me the freedom to travel, but sometimes travel can affect my internet connectivity in unexpected ways. Accessing the internet abroad, unless I was able to get a static IP address, I often found myself unable to access certain sites without having to go through bot verification, sometimes even on the same session. I found out that the reason for this was accessing sites via blacklisted IP addresses. The only way around it was to go through a VPN, not for anonymity, but to get around the blacklisted IP (which was none of my doing). I tried several free VPN options, but they were all too limited and forced me to watch ads. I bought a lifetime access license, which covers all my laptops, tablets, and phones. Anywhere I go, I can access the sites needed for my work without distraction and difficulty.
  • No distractions, works quietly in the background.
  • Dozens of servers to choose from.
  • Lifetime access price well worth it.
  • Covers multiple devices.
  • Streaming servers aren't the greatest, sometimes fail.
  • Not quite so seamless on mobile devices.
  • After a week of constant roadblocks, this VPN sped up my online research considerably.
  • Travelling, I was unable to control my IP, the majority of which were blacklisted on the majority of American sites, but this VPN got me around that so I could get to work.
I tried a few free VPN servers, some via webpages and others via apps, but nothing specific comes to mind, maybe HideMyAss.com and Windscribe. All the freebies had limitations, such as ad-supported, speed limitations, or not allowing scripts to run. KeepSolid VPN Unlimited doesn't have any of these limitations so I could get to work without distraction.
If you need to access sites from your home country while travelling, a dedicated VPN is well worth your time and money. Free versions are limited, maybe useful if you only need to check email, but for ad-free consistent service, this is an excellent value. I suppose you could use a VPN to guard your privacy, but this doesn't fit my usage scenario.
