Open Internet Access uses only well established open source software. This ensures the highest possible code review and least possible chance of code vulnerabilities. Furthermore OIA is superior to all paid VPNs due to the non existence of a payment log linkage between the user and an associated VPN service. Usage of OIA is truly anonymous as there are no links of anykind. OIA is funded by ad revenue and donations. Without this, we could not survive. But thanks to our amazing users, we are able to offer this service sustainably. Please respect this honor system!
The type of VPN connection determines the network characteristics and consequently performance, security, anonymity, and connectivity. There are many differences, but simply UDP is the fastest and most efficient. Although some ISPs block UDP VPN traffic so you may need to use the TCP VPN connection in this case. Tor outbound is great, because you have all of the benefits and anomymity of a VPN, but then on the outbound you also have the anonymity of Tor without your ISP knowing.
