What benefits will it give me vs. using the free service or paying $30 year for premium and using my own router?
There are two matters to consider: First, reliability, and quality of a VPN service. Second, its ease of use. Maybe you have a router that you can configure a VPN on it. Then you need to find a reliable VPN provider that allows you to set it up on a router. This is technically difficult and it needs technical knowledge too. Considering Betternet, it provides a reliable service that 40 million users trust it, but you cannot set it on your own router because the security protocol we use is not supported by any router. Considering Betterspot, it allows using Betternet's security layer on a router with zero configs. We also provide an app that users can simply change the settings and use it easily. That's what you are paying for.

What type of VPN protocol is used on Betterspot?
Betterspot uses Hexa protocol, a secure communication protocol built from scratch for the new era. This technology has several advantages over old technologies:
The time needed to create a secure tunnel is negligible, it only takes a few milliseconds (compared to several seconds for OpenVPN or IPSec). Hexatech supports both IPv4 and IPv6 so there is no risk of IPv6 leaks. The protocol is designed with no signature so controlling organizations are not able to track or block it. All these features make Hexa protocol unique and awesome!
