Some independent reviews of the service:
"Positives: Fairly fast downloads, very fast uploads.
Standard SSh2 setup. Well tested for years, & you can't
accidentally direct-connect to the target server!
Anonymous signup! Cash & Money Orders accepted.
Monthly subscription available.
The least expensive of all these. Only 5.95/mo!
Negatives: Not a thing, really. This server is a lovely piece.
All we can come up with is that the setup instructions
could stand a little tweaking."

Now read what some of our customers have had to say about
- "I really don't know how you do it for $5.95/mo. Cotse is incredible. A complete set of Internet tools - peerless email, tunneling, proxying, remailing, webhosting, I can't even comprehend yet alone use it all.

- "Firstly, let me say how very pleased I am with your
service...and at a very reasonable price. Thank you very
much. I subscribed just a few days ago after much
research, searching and testing.
- I was impressed with the speed of response to my
subscription request and then equally impressed with the
performance of the service itself. Not only did it pass
all the tests I could throw at it (such as everything at
www.popuptest.com) but the response times were better
than most other public proxies (anonymous and otherwise)
and even my ISP's own 'transparent' proxies!
- Keep up the great work!"

seems to work fine although I can't understand how they
can provide a better(?) service than Mutemail at 1/3 the

- Of course I look forward to new features, but the
existing ones have been very nice to have access to,
especially when traveling."
- "Thanks for getting my account up and running. I have
never paid for an e-mail account, but I didn't realize
all the features you offer. $5.95/month is nothing for
what you offer. You offer some very cool services!"
- "I think that sites like this is what makes the
internet a free and democratic place.....away from the
snoops and people who want to take away our rights. I've
been in the computer industry for a long time and have
worked with some of the best....... I'm tired of
information about me being sold and worries about who's
watching me when I'm surfing. Thanks a lot."
