iVPN speed test from Stuttgart, Germany

I did some (not so representative) speed tests for all OpenVPN endpoints from Stuttgart, Germany that are provided by my current favorite VPN anonymizer service iVPN (yes, I am a bit biased currently :D) using Speedtest.net.

For a general comparison of a few good looking VPN anonymizers see here.

I used a different DSL provider here. That explains why I get better results than with single-hop.
