A good VPN
Thinking of getting a VPN.

Can anyone suggest a good one and tell me the the cost?  Does anyone have NORD?

My friends use PIA (Personal Internet Access), and they're pretty savvy (one's a penetration tester who runs a forum, and the other is in IT and programming). It's less expensive than a lot of the others. I use FastestVPN, but only because I got a lifetime license for $10. I haven't needed it. Read the reviews and you'll learn how to evaluate which VPN service is right for you.

I've tried a few VPNs and they've all slowed down my connection dramatically.  I'm guessing you have to
pay big dollars for one that jumps super quickly.  And unless you're a pornographer, I don't really see the
need for a VPN.  All things considered, a VPN doesn't make you completely unidentifiable. Although utilising
a VPN will hide your traffic from your ISP, the VPN provider itself will still be able to recognise who you are.

When a VPN provider simply says they perform "no logging" it doesn't guarantee online anonymity or privacy.
Any systems or network engineer will confirm that some minimal logging is required to properly maintain
and optimise the systems or the network. In fact, any provider claiming no logging should cause you to
immediately question exactly what's happening with your private data.  

And any provider that runs server infrastructure knows running infrastructure with zero logs is extremely
difficult, if not impossible.

Thanks .My nerdy  mate has recommended PureVPN. They have special of $1.32 a month, for 5 years.  Plus .99 a month for port forwarding . Not real thrilled with a 5 year contract , but I can afford $2.31 a month. I'll have think.
