Vpn Recommendations

Postby Scotty on Sun 26/Oct/14 6:46am

I'm currently investigating changing providers and doing a few things around services, is anyone here subscribed to a VPN service?

Ideally it'd need to handle just about everything, from streaming through to gaming, etc. etc.

I've never seen a commercial vpn service that's fast enough to not be totally hopeless for gaming - why would you want to route that via vpn anyway?

really the only reason to use a vpn nowdays is to hide your bittorrent activity (i.e. avoid the 3 strikes law) - otherwise for streaming smartDNS (the free global mode on slingshot/orcon, unotelly etc) is all you need (to get around geoblocking)

VPN would make your ping way too high for any sort of gaming


I use this, just for torrenting TV shows - https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/

A friend of mine still just has peer blocker.

But 'Straya doesn't have a three strikes law yet. They'll get something like the above that wachy mentioned and use when necessary (when they have a torrent program on.)
