im not a total computer know nothing but i really do not know anything about setting up a vpn.
just looking for tips and recommendations.

i search best vpn on google and it is just information overload.

free would be nice but i dont mind paying either.
i would like to not have my bandwidth throttled and i need unlimited data usage.

some of the free ones cap you at like megs.

i just downloaded private tunnel and it was capped at 500 so i ditched it

pc mag had a few they recommended but i just dont know which would be best.

i know there are some members here that know all about this which is why i am asking.

i will not be able to respond to anything until morning but i will respond.

looking for recommendations on

there are many free ones for all platforms.....torrentfreak does a yearly best of review you can google it. Ive personally used HMA, cyberghost, mulvad, strong, Boleh.......they all have (dis)advantages so think about why you need or want it and choose accordingly. I prefer the ones that lock your internet connection if they get disconnected for any reason. Good luck!

Just out of curiosity.

Why do you want to use a VPN?

If you want to use it for bittorent traffic. that's not a good idea.

There are VPNs that specialise in torrenting if that is what he/she is wanting.

Vultr offer OpenVPN and are offering a $50 credit to try if you want to go down that route. I have a VPS with them and can vouch for their reliability and excellent customer support, which is very quick. The link on the Vultr web page provides easy instructions on setting up a VPN.

alas, gone are the days of getting your torrents from usenet. There used to be reasonably cheap nntp servers that would host things immediately. Just needed the right reader to grab all the posts.

luckily private trackers are good.

I need my ubuntu iso's quite a lot !! not to mention the educational videos.

Oh on a related note: can anyone tell me what sort of impact a vpn has on your net speeds? I've never successfully used one, never needed to. But it's slow enough down here as it is living in the 9'th internet world where we're told 20-40mbps is hunky dory in a world full of fttn/ftth...

I've used the tor network before, but I could download an entire 64kb file in 2 hours that way. wasn't impressive. So I'm not sure how well it is with the run of the mill vpn.

just curious...
