    I'm getting really sick of the constant disconnecting then reconnecting. I really like the VPN software but something a little more high quality.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    I'm not sure if it's better, but HotSpotShield is free. All things considered it's pretty fast too, I'm not sure if it would solve your disconnect problem though.

    Be careful with Strong VPN, as they do not protect your privacy too well:
    Code:
    [URL="http://bestvpnforyou.com/vpn-reviews/strongvpn-review/"]http://bestvpnforyou.c0m/vpn-reviews/strongvpn-review/[/URL]
    [URL="http://bestvpnreviews.com/vpn-reviews/strong-vpn-review"]http://bestvpnreviews.c0m/vpn-reviews/strong-vpn-review[/URL]
    (change '0' to 'o')

    If you have a little technical knowledge, better option is to buy a cheap VPS and install Open VPN.

    I got refund from them coz of this reason. it's annoying like hell. have to find some solution before i subscribe again. any solution to this problem would be appreciated as i think HMA is one of the best when comes to high quality VPN.

    The frequent disconnects/auto-reconnects are a major security problem with hidemyass because each time this happens your REAL ip address is revealed without you even knowing it happened. Hidemyass advertises 3000+ ip addresses but you are only able to connect to only 2 or 3 data centers that are close by. Hide my ass are a victim of their own success, they have WAY too many customers using their limited resources.

    Yeah, HMA really lost its game recently. They used to be pretty fast and stable. Now the keep resetting, and the speeds are horrible. A better solution is to build your own, no need to install anything and just need a $3 bare bones VPS. Works like a charm. Let me know if you wanna try this route.

    PS i am not selling any of this...

    Check out vpntunnel.se

    No traffic logs, based in Sweden so won't hand over your details as soon as the phone rings!.

    Dynamic ips with servers in UK, USA, Romania etc. I got an email from them a few days ago and it stated they have a sale with a whole year for 37 euro which just pisses over hma imo.

    Oh I'm not affiliated in anyway. I live in Scotland not sweden.

    But I used them myself a year ago, forgot about them and even fell for the hma is the bees knees tripe myself.

    There are a number of reasons why services like hidemyass are effective. I had a subscription with them before just so I can listen to pandora radio which is limited to US traffic. Another thing I use it for is to manually check rankings easily since by not having a US ip, my results tend to be a bit different and are most of the time very drastic. And the free proxies are too cumbersome to use.

    I now utilize hidemynet because of hidemyass' lack of support for ipad (dont know about know) and would recommend them as an alternative.

    cyberghost is fast and free. I just started using it a few hours ago. SO far smooth sailing... free and stable is loads better than HMA's paid and unstable.

    Before you sign up for *any* VPN service, you want to ensure that it is not PPT based, but Open VPN

    Everyone should probably read this ... http://strongvpn.com/compare.shtml

    Must admit that I appear lucky - no problems with HMA in the few months I have been using them. If any other provider could have the amount of different locations as HMA as well as the ability to connect, disconnect or change IP via command line I would take a look.

    However, for the moment I am quite happy - their command line functionality is ideal for bot making nd cuts out looking for crappy proxies :)

    Their free service can be a bit slow during EU/US working hours.

    At night, it's really fast.

    I've been VERY disappointed with HideMyAss lately. Unfortunately I can't offer you guys an alternative but I will be watching this thread closely as I am currently searching for a better alternative. Thanks everyone!

    I found this post when I was looking for a provider, I'm currently using "private internet access" with great results, great price also.

    Have you checked the hostnames of the dynamic IPs they use? Because I'm now trying HMA VPN and all their IP's are of servers in some datacenters and VPS and privacy service providers. I prefer my IP being a part of a DSL provider network for instance.
