Over the last year I've become somewhat disenchanted with Netshade. The move to NetShade 6 was a bit awkward -- a $10 charge for, in essence, an add-on that I don't use and have no use for. I could live with that, but over the last 9 months the servers - particularly the UK servers -- became so slow that I moved to another VPN (CyberGhost, FWW), which has been 5x ~ 10x faster than NetShade. I'm not sure what's gone wrong. NetShade is the only VPN for Mac that I know of that is consistently updated and has a completely Mac-friendly interface, so it's a real shame that the essential service is now so slow.
