    It would be good to see something on Soft Ether. Especially as one of the sites you advertise, offers this protocol. (CactusVPN).

    I appreciate it is a, relatively, new technology, but it is claimed to be better, stronger and faster than any other protocol. It would be interesting to get an expert opinion.
