VPN Recommendations

Looking for recommendations on a VPN provider so I can comfortably download via Bittorrent, watch Kodi on my laptop and all that sort of stuff

I`ve been using NORDVPN for the last year. Alittle tricky to set up but have had no problems whatsoever.

I have used Private Internet Access for the past 4 years and it is brilliant. You can run it on 5 machines plus you can put a VPN on your phone and/or tablet. The yearly plan is the best option I find for me but you could get it for a month to try it out for yourself. I have never had the VPN bandwidth throttled with PIA. It is a file to download and install then pop your credentials into the appropriate windows and select the country where you want the server to be located. It also has a "Kill Switch" so if the VPN drops off then it stops your home IP from being exposed.


If you scroll down the page in the above link you will see all the countries where they have servers. I am D'under so it is useful to crank up a UK server and watch some of the BBC TV programs on offer.


There are free ones available but many of them keep their logs so you can be found. PIA and some other do not keep logs so it makes it a lot harder for MPAA to get your actual IP. PIA also removed their servers from Russia due to possible Govt monitoring.


All the best with choosing a VPN.

You can also try Keep Solid (www.keepsolid.com). Their client specifies which VPN nodes allow torrent traffic and which don't. I've used them for three years without any issue.

I've used boxpn (boxpn.com) for 5 years or so. Pretty reliable and competitive price. With the odd problem I have had, their helpdesk has quickly resolved any issues.
