I can appreciate the service provider problems that made the recent changes to the VPN necessary. How about trying a paid, premium VPN service? In the past Opera had a paid business model and the high cost of commercial VPN services with unnecessarily long lists of location options should leave room for a low cost service that can leverage the user base of the Opera browser.

RE: Changes in vpn.Opera for Windows
@boroyb88, I expect that everyone has read the post about $ymantec buying the VPN service provider that Opera used previously, and how it it no longer possible to continue the VPN as before. This is not just a change for me, and I assume many others, it makes the built-in VPN useless for my purposes. Opera used to have a paid version. I would suggest going back to that model or at least provide a paid, premium VPN service that is simpler (probably by offering fewer locations) and less expensive than the average commercial VPNs. Obviously, the VPN contributed to the user base for the browser.
