In b4 people who have no idea what a VPN does or is for rush in to buy one.

Protip, it doesn't make your data safer or more secure by 'encryption'.

Dunno why cold tho. One of the better providers out there.
If Linus says it's good, thumbs up from me

Who's he when he's at home


As I thought, I simply googled Linus and he is 1 through 10 on the first page of results. If your interested in tech he is worth a watch, but might take you a life time to watch all of his videos. My favourite ones are the junk yard wars where they make the best performance pc for the cheapest price.
I've used PIA for years there has been better deals out there but this one is best i have seen in a long time
I used it when abroad and purchased through StackSocial which was a deal posted here. I was able to view my bills as the websites were blocked out without a VPN. Unfortunately, iPlayer didn't work.
Use this all the time
Pretty decent deal, not sure why it's cold
Especially since they've increased their prices in march.

1 of the best ones? All the top 5 I’ve seen and nothing mentioned about this. Found a top 7 list and it was the 7th

I am fed up looking for VPN that allows iPlayer access. In fact, that's the ONLY thing I need a VPN for.

Thanks for the info moh23, very useful.

Lol - that HAS to be one of the worst websites I've ever seen - confusing to the point of madness. It's a classic example of someone who knows what they are talking about but who has absolutely no idea how to impart that info to others who have no clue. Colourful though

Because this isn't really a deal, I know they say on their site that you save so much but they're always running that so it's pretty much normal pricing and even on here it regularly comes up at prices cheaper than £20 per year.

I said "better", not "best".
Also curious what your sources are, mine would be based on their privacy policy, and top 10 reviews:
Number 1 with Trusted Reviews trustedreviews.com/bes…328
Number 8 at Tom's guide & Tech Advisor tomsguide.com/us/…tml and
techadvisor.co.uk/tes…32/


Fundamentally if you've not heard of them, then I simply don't value your opinion, since you're probably as poorly informed of the other common top-10 providers.
PIA is rubbish, i had them for two years and the speeds were awful. Been with Nord for 18 months now and it's a far superior service.

Really? I can't say i've had any issues this past year.
74-76mbps not on VPN and depending on which server I choose I get around 65mbps on average.

Just get off from that high horse as you can fall big.

Oh it’s a bit cold in here

That would be the same Techradar that said, "It may not be quite the fastest VPN, or the cheapest, or the most powerful, but Private Internet Access is still a likeable VPN provider with more than enough features to justify a place on your shortlist."

Once again. I never said the best. I said one of the better. Consistent placement in the top-10 meets that definition.

If that's all you want just make your own? I setup my own VPN within an hour on a £6.50 raspberry pi zero, can connect whatever I like to it and it routes the traffic through my home internet connection so within the UK where ever I am, also makes public WiFi more secure.
I'd be a bit wary of rankings for VPN providers. Many of the top hits you're likely to get will be for promotional sites who will be interested in you choosing a provider who will pay them the best commission.

I used them for almost a year. Quite a dodgy company. When I signed up they confirmed they would provide geo unlocking for sites, -including the BBC-. Just as I was about to renew they dropped the geo location pledge. Got lucky, had it happened a month earlier I would have wasted a year's money.

Likewise. I have been using Pure for over a year now and they have given me 100% success on the iplayer. In the past I used PIA and Air, both were beaten by the BBC.

Good for you...

But why bother spending £6.50...why not just setup a VPN Tunnel on your router?

Meanwhile, back on Planet Earth, my ISP's 0.5MB upload speed rather limits such nerdy homebrew options

But thanks for taking the time to stick your oar in
