Review Conclusion

GoTrusted VPN is a very affordable VPN service (one of the cheapest in the market) that provides a reliable and dependable VPN connections to its VPN customers. On the other hand, it has very limited number of servers and has only one regular plan to choose from (no annual discounts). It also does not support Bitcoin for anonymous subscription payments and it does record the bandwidth usage of customers.

Overall, we recommend GoTrusted VPN service for those who are looking for a cheap VPN connection that can unblock video services like netflix – but not for real anonymity.
