Do yo have a problem in reaching certain websites like Skype or Youtube at work? Do you browse sensitive content on the internet and don’t want your staff to know it?
I’ve been doing some research on what might be good to use if, I was away from my home network. I thought how safe am I at Web cafes or other places where i access internet services. So I did a little looking around came to the conclusion that the best solution is using a Virtual Private Network (VPN).With VPN service we can bypass country specific restrictions to access services like Hulu and Pandora, If you want know more details about VPN functioning,then check out About.com

Alonweb is just an OpenVPN server, based upon the highly popular OpenVPN platform. You just have to create an account with them and start having fun.
But remember, this Free VPN service is free only with a 1000MB per month bandwidth restriction. I think this is enough for simple browsing .

If you want to go beyond that and use it for downloading your favorite songs, video etc., then you will have to go for their paid version.
