Hello all,

I'm looking for a VPN provider to encrypt my communications. My main
objective is to get secure communications while being able to search on the
web, read and create content and, most of all, can get my IM/IRC traffic

Any suggestions?

I've seen some providers - like HideMyAss, SwissVPN, etc - and i'm looking
for the best security with the lower price :)

Thanks in advance


what about tunnelr.com?


Okay there are a few things you should look for when considering a vpn
service and here is what i look at.

1. is the company based outside of the U.S. ?

2. do they log?

3. do they have a good amount of non U.S. vpn servers?

4. do they allow P2P traffic ?

5. do they have any network restrictions?

6. do they use openvpn (which uses tls or ssl encryption)

7. do they support windows/mac/and linux ?

8. are they reasonably priced?

Now the one company that meets all of this criteria is ibvpn.com I have
been using them now for months and they are great! I never have any
problem connecting to any of their servers and their speeds are great! I
am in the U.S. and when i use their canada vpn server i still get speeds
around 10mbps/10mbps which is really fast for a vpn. Best of all they
are based outside of the united states which does not restrict them to
any logging laws and they do not keep any logs. They allow p2p traffic
on certain servers which is great, and they have great customer service.

Also, their prices are the best. You can get 6 months of their premium
package which gives you access to everything plus 20+ vpn servers from
different countries to choose from for $36 for 6 months! That is cheap.

You should check them out...

Don't go with hidemyass they will sell you out which they have done to
their customers already and i have heard bad things about swissvpn, plus
they admit they log.

I hope this has been helpful to you...
