Im looking to get a VPN and was wondering if anyone here uses one.

Who do you prefer, and what speeds do you get.

Any info to help me make a good choice would be appreciated.

I'm pretty syre OpenVPN is free, and decent. Any vpn service would be great. You could also look at i2p which is also free, maybe slower than a vpn though.

Seems openvpn is a pay service, but i2p is free. Im checking it out now. Hope it solves my blacklisting problems.

I use SecurityKISS in Linux and it has been pretty good for me. Here are a couple of links that might help you out with info on several others.

Just google free VPN services. You should come up with something. i2p is great but it can be slow. You can try TOR too, TOR is faster but beware of certain.. places on the internet you do not want to go. But works great for general browsing anonymously.

I use Cisco VPN Client

My speeds are no different, a tad bit of lag when loading something of great size. Other than that I think it works great! (not that the lag is bad, it's almost unnoticeable)

i tried i2p, its got echelon written all over it. No really, its in the config files and everything. I couldn't get it to work. Still reveals my external ip to websites.

I may go with a paid vpn service. Not that i have something to hide or anything like that. Im trying to bypass some blacklists that are preventing me from using certain sites.

I got the free version of hotspot shield and it works great. It also cured my blacklist problems. I'm now able to browse all the sites i use!
Thus confirming my suspicions. Take that isp whom wont change my ip address. Only downside it i want from 15ms latency to 200ms and cut my throughput in half. Ehh ohh well.

"resove my blacklisting problems..."
An observation? Perhaps resolving your reasons for being "blacklisted" in the 1st place is a more fundemental procedure to move forward on instead of trying to go around-about way...without resolving those issues?

No dis-respect meant...just saying....

*PS c/o ABOUT.COM
"Note on VPN speeds: expect your internet speed to be reduced by up to 75% while you are using your VPN. VPN speeds of 2 to 4 Mbps are common for cheaper VPN's. Speeds of 5 Mbps per second are good. VPN speeds over 15 Mbps are excellent".

None taken. I posted a rant the other day about my blacklisting. A pc infected with a botnet on my network sending spam emails.
I wiped the system and fixed the problem. I even found the software that caused it.

All is well now except for my isp claiming they cant change my ip or lift my blacklisting. They are however sending me a new modem?
I guess a new hardware mac addy on the network will receive a new ip? Speculating.

I will still use the vpn after i get a new ip addy. Only my servers will be allowed my external address directly.

I'm seeing 50-75% loss in speed, but with my isp its not noticeable.

Got a new modem today in the mail. Gave me a new ip. They claim the ips are dynamically assigned to the nat. I dont think they are. I think the device is given an ip when its mac is white listed on the network.

Now in 2015 millions of internet and smartphone devices preferred to choose vpn for their high level internet security and privacy. VPN helps all users to safe them from hackers and anonymous on the other side some users use this tool to access blocked stuff. By changing IP with UK ip all the uk content will be open for other regions users. I am also using best vpn for uk for the same purpose.

I will suggest all internet users to choose the best vpn from here for their best as now it is necessary for everyone to get secure online. I am using vpn for Canada as i am outside Canada right now and want to access Canada content.www.bestvpnservice.com/canada-ip-vpn.html

Your ISP is feeding you a static IP? Without you paying a premium for it?

That's really dumb on their part. Most ISP's will serve you a dynamic/public IP with a certain lease time, which is usually no more than a few weeks at max.

Now if your modem was compromised on the firmware level, they might be sending you a new one to correct that, but a new MAC address won't get served a new IP if they are still sending you a static IP.

That's very strange indeed.

ETA: Blacklisting your MAC would serve it no IP at all, as opposed to a static one. So what they told you was true. Your modem was probably compromised and that's why they couldn't change it and opted to send you a new modem.
