Anonine is a VPN provider based in Sweden that has been around since 2009. When they first started they only offered servers based in Sweden, but they have since branched out to offer 32 sever locations around the globe. Anonine, on the whole, is a pretty good company for the services it wishes to provide with plenty of ticks in the security and speed areas but a slight let down in the other categories.

Speed and Performance
We carried out our three primary tests as usual. We had no problems with the IP test and the DNS leak test was exemplary. Their VPN speed tests were decent with both OpenVPN and PPTP, with PPTP showing slightly improved speeds as expected. Through OpenVPN, we reached speeds of around 13 Mbps, while through PPTP we saw speeds of around 14.30 Mbps.

Privacy and Security
Anonine allows OpenVPN, L2TP, and PPTP encryption mechanisms which is good news, and they use both 256-bit as well as 128-bit. They use Dynamic Dedicated IPs which is good news and unlike many providers they regularly replace their stack of IP addresses with new ones to provide an extra level of protection. They collect absolutely no personal information (unless required for payment).
Being Swedish-based is a fantastic bonus point for this company as there are very little laws for VPNs and they aren't required to log in any matter and the country has been known for their internet and freedom concerns hence so many companies are based there i.e. The Pirate Bay. You can read more about Sweden and VPNs here.
They have a good ToS and all relevant information can found across the website. They take pride in the fact that they do not collect any personal information and the only logs they keep are basic connection logs and even these are only stored for an hour.
All in all, Anonine offers a solid option for those interested in maintaining their online privacy and for those interested in accessing the US Netflix library. The one big drawback which is important to note is their lack of dedicated client software on any platform. They rely on third-party clients to facilitate the VPN connection. While this may not be a big deal for experienced VPN users, if you're not super tech-oriented or if you're new to VPNs, then this may not be exactly what you're looking for, as it is not exactly "plug-and-play".
