    Note: I am using hide.me and it just got WireGuard a few days ago in their latest updated v3.3.4

    AirVPN? Mullvad? IVPN? Those are top choices of the Wilders community, and yet they are not listed. In a way it makes me happy: those 3 top players usually refuse any sponsorship review as part of their philosophy. IMO, this review is -at best- incomplete.

    I agree, some of the best are left out. But we probably know how they would fare in this test.

    There are several hundreds of VPNs out there. We took the most popular/requested ones (according to our survey and media contacts). Maybe we include them the next time.

    That makes sense. The others are arguably niche, with an emphasis on privacy, preventing leaks, and so on.

    AirVPN, IVPN and Mullvad are also among the oldest, and have never given up users. Many years ago, AirVPN actually moved from France to Italy over a compromise attempt. Not long ago, IVPN moved from Malta to Gibraltar to reduce exposure to EU oversight. And their Director Nicholas Pestell has stated that they'll go out of business before compromising any user data.
