VPN Services

Hello-

Does anyone have any reasonable experience with VPN's?...

We're looking into one for pc only that doesn't slow connection down, is reliable, and has a good

US server network.

Thanks for any and all input.

Kind Regards-

tim

I don't use a VPN service at the moment, but in my research, I personally would pick Private Internet Access (PIA). I rarely use a torrent client, but when I do, I'm downloading Linux ISO's (no harm, no foul there). Here are a couple of links that may help you make a decision based on your needs:

I'm not sure about the others, but PIA can be purchased for one month so you can try it out. I think it's $6.95, but an entire year costs $39.95 (no refunds).

Good luck!

Thanks for the information... Indeed, my research to this point has me favoring PIA, as well.

I have used a torrent client quite regularly in the past for file sharing with clients within my engineering

consulting business. People hear 'torrent' and automatically assume you're up to something illicit. SMH
