If you're getting shit speeds on a vpn, change vpn.

I get about 80-90% of my unprotected speed, when connected to the vpn.

free ones are obviously shit.

All good vpn sites offer a 30day money back offer. So if you're not happy, email them, get your refund and try another one.

If you can choose your country to appear from, choose the uk, not overseas.

a vpn is simple, you open it up and now all the internet ( including torrents ) are no longer visible to your isp. Also stops the new isp spying program the government introduced in january where your isp has to keep a log of every site you visit and keep it for 12 months. Lots of goverment dept can view these records, not just popo.

btw, browser free vpn's will not stop torrenting being detected, you need one that downloads to your pc. Usually costing a tenner a month.

I recommend https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/pages/buy-vpn/ its $7 a month or if you pay for the year, its only $3 a month. can use paypay.



the letters are just warniings....for now. i'd say next year they will come with strikes. 3 and you're out.

VPN solves it. If you can install skype then you can install a VPN.

Once you boot your pc, you just open vpn, click connect and your safe. No need for proxies either.



been with them 15 years, i rang up, he said 150...but then pretended to do a discount n gave it me with the new superhub router for 66quid if i signed a new 12month contract.

I can't recommend the new tivo box enough......the old tivo was aids due to lag.
You should 100% start an internet payment company called paypay

VPN will solve the issue of your ISP getting any easy evidence (as long as you pay for a proper one), but I'm not sure how far they will realistically go with their threats anyway. Unless they are compelled to by law, they won't want to risk losing customers to competitors with more lenient policies. I think the wild west days of the internet are probably coming to an end, but whether that'll be a transition period of a couple of years or a lot longer I'm not sure.
