Best paid VPN service?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I have seen a lot of them like StrongVPN, Hide my Ass!, and Black Logic, but what is the difference besides price?

Is the best one for me the one with the most servers in my country or in my case, local area? How much will my speed crash?

What exactly are you trying to accomplish with the VPN?

SwissVPN and Ipredator are good if you need a non-US VPN.

It really depends on the type of vpn transform-sets or ISK phase 1 SA features you want to implement. If you're just after a TLS VPN (web) then it's pretty strait forward for security. If you want to use IPsec then you've got to make sure you're going to use devices/software that has compatible ISAKMP policy that will give you the securtiy options you want.

The heavier the encryption the more overhead, higher jitter, etc. You've got'a weigh the symmetrical encryption types with what you want to use with the services you which to use. So like the predecessing post above insinuates.. Figure out what you're encrypting and choose the type from their.

Basically just web browsing and some file transfer. Other stuff like games or VOIP doesn't require it in my uses but why not if I had it and it didn't slow anything down.

There's no way to give you a good recommendation until you answer this question:

Why exactly do you want a VPN?

This, unfortunately, isn't an answer to the question. In fact, it may be that a VPN is exactly the wrong solution for whatever it happens to be. For instance, a VPN will add latency and lower bandwidth, which is exactly what you don't want for gaming and VoIP. And a VPN certainly isn't required for web browsing or downloading files.

Well I have Peer Block and I don't like how many entities there are out there that just try to see what I'm doing. I like my privacy in all areas of life. Just because I'm online I don't think people should be able to follow me around and keep a record of what I do and what I look at.

What would be an answer to the question?
