BrandName vs. iWasel
iWasel is relatively unknown compared to many of the bigger names on the market. They do, however, have a client that is easy to use and they offer versatile options for payment, which should appeal to some users. They seem very heavily concentrated on getting the market from Arabic speaking countries.
iWasel does offer some nice features. The unlimited bandwidth on their plans is certainly more than competitive with a lot of other providers out there. The client is also easy enough to use that most people should have no real difficulty setting up their VPN service. Prices are also competitive, though a little bit higher than some other providers.
The OpenVPN protocol provides excellent privacy enhancement and cannot be blocked by filtering out traffic over certain ports, making it useful for nations with national firewalls. The PPTP option is not adequate for people who have serious reasons to protect their privacy against spying eyes.
