If you want something really simple, you could take a look at TunnelBear It offers 512MB a month free (1GB if you tweet about it) Just install, set-up an account and go. If you like it you can pay for a subscription. Obviously, if you're looking for something to handle p2p traffic, you'll need an offshore paid service, as the free options tend to be quite limited.

I'm not sure why that's happening without more information. I've just checked again and the tunnel addresses are shown, see images.

 Its the same with cyberghost  ??? I've checked with other sites and my location has changed as expected,
why http://www.whatsmyip.org/more-info-about-you/ can pinpoint me even after IP has changed I dont know, makes using a VPN in the UK/US pretty pointless  :-\

Do you have any plug-ins such as flash or Java enabled? Also, how did you answer when it asked if your would allow tracking?

It's worth a try, flash is notorious for leaking information. I edited my earlier question to ask about your answer regarding tracking...

I just tried dragon with flash and java and it was still not able to identify my true location. It will be interesting to see what TB have to say. However, from your first post, it seems you've tried a few different VPNs all with the same 'issue'?

hmm just tried on google chrome with - Do not allow any site to track my physical location- enabled and I was hidden,
I noticed that when I visited this site for the !st time there is a message asking if you will allow it to track your location...the difference been on the Dragon I initially allowed this where as on G chrome I didnt.
Also after reading googles location tracking info, apparently they use local WIFI points to assist in "placing" you maybe thats whats happening here ??? other than that still scratching my head  ???
will rerport TB's response
