Re: Playbook VPN settings

[ Edited ]

I subscribed to a certain VPN provider for several years for PC use and every time I asked them when they would support the PlayBook they fobbed me off claiming that the PlayBook did not support VPN.  That was nonsense as we know, it was also the end of my relationship with them. 


There are many VPN providers around but finding one who supports the PlayBook, offers easy set up and has a good reputation can be a bit of a task. After some searching I found Witopia.  Great choice of servers, great prices and excellent customer service.  I thoroughly recommend them. Have a look at the link(s)  below. Good luck.
