Works reasonably well. Speeds are at most 1.5mb/s (on my 120mb/s connection), so its quite slow. Also only one server out of the 4 allows torrent traffic. Most of the trackers block it as when I use torrents on the VPN I get mostly timeouts on the trackers, but when I turn the VPN off, most of the trackers reply and the # of seeders and leechers goes way up. I give it 3 stars, as it works but not very well.
