Before looking at the price, the encryption level and the available
bandwidth, you should really investigate on the privacy policy of the
provider. More importantly, you should check the country in which the
company is registered and the laws regarding privacy in that country.

For instance, forget about any VPN provider operating in America.
Thanks to the Patriot Act, law enforcement agencies can basically get
any information from any company with a simple request. So much for
secure communications...
Scratch the UK too. The long arm of the US reached in to the UK also.

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
