Today proXPN announced a substantial upgrade to its VPN data center in New York City.
Leading freemium VPN service provider proXPN has just announced a 100% increase in the available bandwidth at its popular New York VPN data center.
Demand has grown substantially in the past 3 months for secure VPN connections to New York City, primarily from proXPN’s rapidly expanding base of Canadian VPN users. Canadian proXPN users typically prefer connecting to the New York City data center because of its close proximity to Canada as well as receiving a USA IP address once connected.
“I rely on an American IP for a lot of the sites I visit,” stated Mr. Kurt Berrington, a long time proXPN user. “I’ve tried the other servers in the US but New York consistently gives me the best speed.” Many Canadians rely on attaining an American IP address in order to access content they ordinarily wouldn’t be able to reach.
The way proXPN’s servers work is to provide the user with an IP address in the same region as the datacenter. In the case of the proXPN New York City data center, whether a user is physically located in Canada, Germany, Tibet, or anywhere else the websites they visit will always see them as being located in New York City.
Due to the substantial increase in demand for VPN connections to New York City, proXPN has doubled the bandwidth capacity of its data center. Users will be able to enjoy more responsive web browsing, faster file transfers, and less buffering while watching streaming video.
Plans have already been announced for another upgrade in the available bandwidth at proXPN’s New York City data center in early Q2 2013.
Founded in 2009, proXPN is a leading VPN provider that stands out from other services by offering free accounts. Stepping away from the SaaS standard practice of time-based free trials, a proXPN free VPN account lasts for life and is limited only in the connection speed. proXPN Premium account users enjoy unlimited connection speeds as well as advanced features such as PPTP compatibility for mobile devices and VPN Guard™, proXPN’s method of cutting all data transfer should the VPN connection fail, thus ensuring all data is encrypted during transmission even if there’s a system error. proXPN’s firm stance on the importance of individual privacy and security online has echoed the growing public sentiment in 2012 during debates over SOPA and PIPA.
