Headquartered in Delaware, HomeVPN is a relatively new VPN provider that offers a service that may have just what some users are looking for. Given that they are a bit newer, however, they still do need more time to establish themselves among the other leading VPN services out there. Among their advantages are affordable prices and some additional features regarding your IP address that you might find tempting.
We will be conducting a speed test on HomeVPN in the near future.

HomeVPN vs. The Competition
HomeVPN is a new service, so it does need time to establish itself. It’s offerings do include some nice elements, however. For example, there is support for port forwarding included in all of its packages. There are also private virtual OpenVPN servers available and they are provided with dedicated IP addresses, which may give this company an edge with some users.
HomeVPN, being rather new, needs more time to develop as a service. What it does have to offer may appeal to those who want a service that makes it easy to work with dedicated IP addresses and with port forwarding. Those who want to use their VPN for torrenting, however, will have to look elsewhere for a provider.
