Best paid VPN service? - Page 3

post #21 of 28
A no-log VPN like:
nvpn.net
perfect-privacy.com
trilightzone.org

I don't recommend the "big name" VPN providers like you mentioned, they snoop at your browsing history. I'd trust my ISP over them any day.

if you don't want people connecting to your computer don't send out a connection request. If you're behind a router connections can only be started if you send out the syn etc.

Access it HOW? How do you think you're going to connect to the Internet without some sort of connectivity?

If it makes you feel any better, EVERYONE pays for access. "Internet" is short for internetwork, which means that the Internet is an interconnection of thousands of different networks (now known as Autonomous Systems). In general, each person or organization pays for their own portion of the network and they all interconnect to each other through peering arrangements whereby different owners of different parts of networks agree to route traffic for each other. If you want to get on the Internet, you have to pay a little for your little piece, just like the big boys pay millions of dollars for their big pieces.

Feel free to dig a ditch and place all of your own fiber for miles on end. Feel free to invest in expensive equipment that supports single mode fiber over long ranges. Have fun losing your investment when the other end you're trying to connect to won't give you access to anywhere.

Is that really a legitimate question?

To be honest I just use it, I have never really researched it much just like most people. I try to question most of the things around me but I don't always get to all of it.

You probably went to school for networking because you're interested in it, or just spend a lot of your own time educating yourself about it.

No worries, it's just the same concept as anything else.

Why shouldn't we be able to get water or power for free?
It costs a lot of cash to build and maintain the infrastructure.

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?
take a look at the your -freedom client at your-freedom.net. They're one of the best

It just doesn't feel right, it's like they have their hands in my pocket as I walk by.
i just installed peerblock and I was amazed at who was trying to enter my computer!
