As our clientele now encompasses an increasingly privacy conscious crowd, we are wondering if users might be interested in a multi-hop VPN as an additional paid option.
What is a Multi-Hop VPN?
Currently your internet traffic passes through to one VPN server and then out to your destination. A single-hop VPN is pretty secure and ensures the least loss of bandwidth/latency. However a multi-hop VPN bounces your internet traffic to two VPN servers before going out to your destination and is even MORE secure. The benefits are enhanced security and it’s harder to trace but the drawback is that it takes a hit on bandwidth and latency and it costs more since you would need double the number of servers and bandwidth to achieve it. It’s most likely not something you want to use if you just wish for secure P2P but more for extremely sensitive matters.
Would you pay for an option like this as an add-on and if so how much? Post in comments after voting on suggested add-on price.
I can say that it’s most likely not going to be less than RM10 for an add-on since this is quite resource intensive.
