Re: VPN providers

said by shwatkin:

Been using boxpn for a while now and the speeds are good

The speeds you quoted, are you getting that throughput using PPTP / L2TP + SSTP?

Looks promising. Thanks.

Mike, those speeds are via PPTP/L2TP. I didn't bother with the SSTP account, figured 256-bit encryption would be good enough. It's really easy to choose your encryption type if you use their login software, which is actually pretty good.

I've been using Torguard.net VPN for a couple weeks and just got this in an email for those interested.

For a limited time, you can now give yourself (or that geek you know) the gift of encryption for 30% off regular price! If you missed out on BlackFriday and were asleep for CyberMonday, this is a perfect opportunity to cash in on one of our last big holiday sales. Starting on December 14th, all the way through the 25th, just enter the discount code “AnonymousSanta” during checkout to instantly receive 30% off of all services in your shopping cart. This discount applies to all TorGuard services, including our VPN, proxy and VPN Reseller packages!

Done deal, all signed up for a month to check it out. Very painless setup.

Thanks for the intel. Sorry if it appears I'm posting from, you know, Istanbul.

how is torguard ? how is speed and are there a lot of disconnect ?

can you switch between servers unlimited ? how many servers are there.

can you change IP easily ?

They seems to be based in Panama and not in any ACTA countries so that looks good.

if it helps I have been happy with ipredator.se

»www.ipredator.se (was also mentioned on the torrentfreak article mentioned in this thread)

the price is 150SEK (approx. $22.4559 USD) for 3 months. Breaks down annually to about $90/yr ($89.82) USD and averages about $7.49 USD a month. I also recommend using the software they recommend called viscosity for windows 7. Works fantastic and is only $10.

You get a swedish based IP address from across the pond.

Private Internet Access ($3.33 monthly/$39.95 yearly) and boxpn ($3.75 monthly/$44 yearly) are both pretty cheap. Even for the poorest student. Just skip the pub this weekend and that should pay for your year with either provider.

Also, if you pay for your internet access you could consider a switch to Acanac as they provide VPN access for free with their DSL or Cable service. Personally though I'd pay for VPN as that allows you to quickly switch services if you aren't happy, its much harder (or at least less convenient) to switch ISP's.

I went with privateinternetaccess and it seems solid so far. Went with the month option and will buy the yearly pass if it works out.
