Torguard VPN with dedicated IP £12.20 for 6 months recurring

193
Found 4th Jul 2015
Had PIA for a bit but ended up accidentally cancelling it (trying to change payment type!) so was shopping about and found this cracking deal.

Step by step:

goto torguard.net/
Add the $9.99 VPN Pro Service
Add regular dedicated IP from dropdown
Add TG Viscosity License
"Add to cart and checkout"
Enter promo code TGLifetime50
This should price at $18.99 (£12.20), billed semi annually.

The code TGLifetime50 is supposed to be for annual subs only, but Ive checked out fine.

You will notice also the regular dedicated IP is $7.99 for semi annual and something crazy like $54.99 for annual. Might be another glitch. You can remove this if you will never use it for an even cheaper price. personally I need it, and will use it a lot.

For Hola users, this is the next step up in protecting yourself online, and accessing blocked content.

Anyway...Top class VPN, ipv6 leak protection, great client,dedicated IP in your country of choice for under 25 quid a year for life. Cracking deal!

I use CyberGhost free edition. Seems to work perfectly - and gave me Full HD BBC iPlayer in Portugal.

What does Torguard do that CyberGhost doesn't?

Torguard is faster with better support - its a premium service for users who need a 100% encrypted and reliable connection, not a browser based add on.
CyberGhost free is in the Hola crowd, absolutely fine for browsing and viewing, but very limited configurable options eg only 3 servers, shared ip's. While Cyberghost will divert your browser, it doesn't touch the rest of your connection unless you get the paid for client. So, while you can get around region locks, you aren't getting a private, secure connection. If that's of no interest to you, then Cyberghost is fine.

not forgetting things like hola and the free ones may sell your line when its not in use,increasing your internet traffic.

Are you sure you are 100% secure when downloading from torrents with this?

CyberGhost on my Windows laptop changes my whole internet connection to a new IP ... not just the browser
(As an example, BBC iPlayer downloader works perfectly when using CyberGhost, whereas it disconnects when trying to use it without CG switched on).

I am sure TorGuard is much better - but I run CyberGhost permanently (it connects at Windows startup), and haven't really had any issues with it to date. I am sending this message via the Cyber Ghost connection.

True, though an advert every few hours seems like a fair compromise :).

Don't get me wrong - I am always on the lookout for better solutions....but for my needs, CyberGhost seems to work very well (i.e., watching UK content when abroad etc)

Ah, I have just read up that torrenting is not supported by CyberGhost Free. So there's a big reason to go with Torguard
For everyone else though who doesn't have a need to Torrent, I can definitely recommend the free version of CG.

Original Poster

Oh ok, CG free uses a client also then. Itll just be the premium features then, things like speed, configuration and server choice that this deal gives you. And a dedicated IP of course
From what I can tell, CG are a good company so I wouldnt have concerns about them selling data, logging and keeping your details private. But they definitly do throttle the speeds on free.

Torrenting is a bit of a dirty word I think. If people want to use the deal for that, fine, none of my business. Thats the point of a VPN - you have the freedom to choose.

Thanks I will try it. Need it in China. According customer service it works well there. Any one used Torguard in China? Comments? Regards

no Indian ip option. shame or I would have gone for that!

Apparantly VyprVPN is the one to use in China, as their chameleon technology is pretty much designed to bypass the Great FIrewall. However it comes with a host of other issues eg they do log and they are expensive. Theres also plenty of source out there for them being an FBI front believe it or not!

Confirmed - not an option in the client. Wonder why that is?

Speed without CG Free:

Ping - 24ms
D/L speed - 5.16Mbps
Upload speed - 0.81Mbps

Speed with CG Free:

Ping - 32ms
D/L speed - 3.146Mbps
U/L speed - 0..80Mbps

Not brilliant - but good enough

Currently on PIA. Does anyone recommend Torguard over PIA?
Edited by: "BulletRizz" 4th Jul 2015

Don't CG sell your data / did do on the free plan ?
Remember reading something about that a while ago.

Original Poster

I dont think CG sell data, but I dont know that much about them.
I do recommend Torguard over PIA, having used both.
Torguard is cheaper with a better client. PIA's client can be a bloody nightmare.
Disclaimer - based off a few hours with TG only

Does Torguard log or record data and are servers in UK/Europe or US? How does VPN affect gaming?

They may not sell your data, but there's a 100% certainty they will steal your pr0n

Can't get torrenting to work even on CG paid to be fair...so might invest in this one

They dont log, but they are US based. A VPN shouldnt affect gaming, unless you MP over a dedicated IP, in which case you may need to do some port forwarding

Cheers OP. Great price. I have been shopping around for a while, but could not pass up this deal. Heat

so i take it this can hide you when downloading ?

It restores your right to privacy, whatever you are doing. Its none of my business what you do on your connection, nor anyone elses. Torguard/VPNs simply gives you back that privacy.

right thanks

US based? That she would be a warning flag! Microsoft et al struggle to fight off the determined approaches of the NSA....so what chance a little VPN like this one?

Faith in the no logging policy, and a comprehensive DMCA policy. You can't take anyone's word, but you can at least put the odds in your favour. If we were talking a small no-name VPN, sure but TorGuard are one of the biggies. If they logged/acted on DMCAs in any enforceable manner then they would go under. Here's a source article: torrentfreak.com/vpn…on/

Comments from the CyberGhost owners;

"We think that company headquarters like ours in the European Union is a very good solution for users: It offers a high legal standard in private data protection for the user and a possibility to operate absolutely transparent for us. We believe that US Lavabit owner Ladar Levison was right as he said, after he shut down is encrypted e mail service: “I would strongly recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States.”

Quite pleased that my free service is holding up to scrutiny - and is based in a place with proper respect for privacy

And Romanian too! I always seem to get the best results through Romanian based servers.
The US thing is a gamble, sure. But of the 4 companies that have very recently proven to have the best protection, 3 were US (TG, PIA, VyprVPN) so they are doing something right! If anyone is interested, the only one outside the US was Mullvad.

Just to add, had an issue with the dedicated IP, support was top class >1hr response times through tickets. The IP itself is flawless in terms of speed loss.

It's likely your ISP throttling because your VPN isn't doing its job. It's a question of encryption, Torguards is very good so indeed if you desire to use your connection that way you should see minimal speed loss.

Yes it does, and it has tested fine so far. According to my phone's DNS I'm currently in Romania

edit: even got this comment added to the mod queue for having a non EU IP! C'mon HUKD, Romania have been EU for 7 months now!

I prefer EarthVPN..might not be the best but a large selection of countries to connect to. $40 a year (£26 a year)

Access to all 32 Countries, 151 Locations, PPTP / L2TP / SSTP / OpenVPN Protocols

Hide.Me is better in m opinion...

VPNs are very much personal preference add there are so many out there, advertising so many claims. I don't think it's fair to say one is better than the other, but remember this deal I posted includes your very own static ip over vpn. That's a bloody useful thing to have! So if you are comparing prices, it's something to take into account.
