Re: VPN providers

Been using boxpn (»www.boxpn.com/) for a while now and the speeds are good (2.0+ MB/s depending on the time of day, can max out my 28Mb/s cable connection on occasion), there are lots of servers to pick from, unlimited switches between servers, includes servers that support torrenting, support has been excellent and fast whenever I've contacted them, and the price for a year of unlimited service is $44 (or $3.75 a month). I'd sign up for 1 month first and then if you like the service extend for a year.

Most popular service is likely HideMyAss (»www.hidemyass.com/vpn/) but they are more money at $60 a year. However they have a lot more servers to pick from. Not sure about limitations on switching or torrenting.

No limits.

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.

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.

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.
