Hi guys,

I'm thinking of setting up a vpn with all this talk of tracking downloads etc and was wondering what you guys use? I have checked out private Internet access and it's about $3 a month, is that about right?

Also does it affect download speeds or gaming ping? I don't really know much about it...

Havn't really used a vpn before other than to lan a game on, but I also read the bullsh1t laws they are planning on bringing in and will probably look into it... got until Septemberish though.

Some stuff I've been reading regarding speed connected through a vpn...

"Find server locations in countries near yours, as the distance between your country and the server country does affect the speed with which the Internet flows through the VPN. This slowness is due to the time it takes a data packet to travel back and forth over the VPN. Another influencing factor is the VPN server load. Mainly, this is a problem of FREE VPN service providers. This can happen if there are a lot of users connected to this server at this particular moment."

"The speed which your ISP provides will also affect the speed of a VPN connection. Most high speed connections handle a minimum of 1.5 Mbps and may go up to 30 Mbps. In these cases the VPN speed won’t be much affected, but anything less than this (as supplied by dial-up or 3G connections) can cause VPN connectivity issues. Another factor depending of you ISP is the interconnection level of VPN provider with your ISP, so even if you have a 50 mbps but this interconnection is poor you can’t get the best from this VPN service. Also, in some cases and for some reasons, the higher your standard internet connection the more speed you “lose” in percents. For example, if you have 5 mbps connection, you’ll lose just 10-20% of bandwidth, and if you have 100 mbps you can lose even more than a half of your connection if you connect to a VPN."

So you only need to connect to the vpn when downloading or browsing the net? You can disconnect for gaming and have full speed?

That's good then you don't really have to worry about speed issues too much
