UnoTelly is a SmartDNS service that has a VPN add-on. They’re headquartered in Canada. The service is centered on unlocking geo-restricted content more than it is security. If your primary concern is being able to watch content that’s not available in your part of the world, this is one of the services you might want to give consideration as a solution.
Pricing and Plans
UnoTelly offers two different plans; one with UnoDNS and one with UnoDNS and UnoVPN. Both packages allow you to sign up month-to-month without a renewing subscription. The pricing is as follows:
- UnoDNS: $3.94 per month
- UnoDNS and UnoVPN: $4.93
You can pay via credit card or PayPal.
Free Trial / Money Back Guarantee
There’s a default three-day trial you can get just by signing up at the site. After you do, you’ll be prompted to verify your email to get more days. Invite some friends and you can get even more. This company is generous with their free trial offer.
Privacy & Anonymity
There’s nothing expressly forbidding torrent usage on their pages, though UnoTelly doesn’t advertise itself as a P2P service.
A chat window, ticketing system and extensive instructions are available at the UnoTelly site.
The VPN service 2uses the OpenVPN GUI client, so the experience doesn’t really stack up next to services that have their own client. The OpenVPN client, however, does a great job and makes it easy enough to connect. PPTP setup is manual and as much of a pain as it usually is.
Windows, Mac OSX, Android, IPhone, etc.
There are setup instructions for Android, iOS and other operating systems and devices on the UnoTelly site.

Our download speed was just above 9Mbps using UnoTelly. While this is slow compared to a lot of VPN providers, it is entirely adequate—in fact, it’s more than what’s needed—for streaming, which is really what this service is designed for.
