How much is it?
Medley VPN is $6/month plus the Missisippi state tax of 7%, and the first month is free.
How does it work?
The VPN is built on AWS using an Ubuntu server with a static IP address and an installation of OpenVPN server configured as either a standard VPN or to the customer's liking.
What is a VPN?
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, with the key word being private. A VPN makes a secure connection between your device and a server somewhere else, leaving your ISP in the dark about your internet traffic and allowing for features that they either do not support or intentionally block.
Why would I need a VPN?
If you are using public wifi, you should be using a VPN, period. Attacks such as man-in-the-middle and evil twin attacks are beyond easy to do for anyone with even moderate IT knowledge.
With many internet companies (I'm looking at you, AT&T) engaging in shady anti-consumer practices such as throttling and monitoring, it's a good idea to protect yourself even when you're on your own private network.
Why should I choose Medley Technologies as my VPN provider?
Our VPN provides a static IPv4 address and port forwarding. This is useful if you're looking to run a website or a game server from home. In addition, if the customer requests any additional VPN configurations we would be happy to oblige. With other VPNs you are typically given an IP address that changes and is used by other people, which may get the IP blacklisted by many sites. With Medley VPN your IP belongs to you and only you, so this is not a possibility.
