Hop logotype

Your home Internet connection, now available worldwide

Meet Hop, a new way to access the Internet when you’re not at home

WHY USE HOP?

Sometimes there’s no place like home, especially when it comes to Internet access

Hop lets you bring your home Internet connection with you wherever you go.


No more blocking

Times are changing. Commercial VPN services like NetShade were once the answer. Often they still are — but with major video & content services (and sometimes entire countries) starting to block VPNs, it’s time for a new approach. That’s why we created Hop.

Hop lets you access popular sites like these as you would from home.


With Hop you’ll be able to access all your familiar content free of blocking, firewalls or snooping.
