I use Nord VPN, it is very easy to use & reasonably priced.

I also use Nord VPN. I find it easy to use but not perfect. I signed up via Quidco which offers a 75% cash ack.

Nord VPN is working best for me. I had hotspotshield for years but discontinued because of the logging.

Does a VPN slow down your internet speed?

There is enough in the world for everyone, but not enough for the greedy!

I have IPVANISH, paid I think about 70 $ US for two years, as far as I can tell it works, downside though some sites know you are using a VPN and wont let you in, or go any further, Netflix is one I found do this, but no bother, many other sites no problems, perhaps might if you mess with settings?? And haven't noticed any signifcant drop in speeds, a friend got one for free then found out he had a certain amount of use for free, and it wasn't much either, then it stopped and they asked for money to continue.

Did you try NordVPN or ExpressVPN? If not, this is my suggestion!

BBC iPlayer is a streaming service that offers BBC content on demand. You can access BBC iPlayer from anywhere in the world with a VPN. A VPN will encrypt your traffic and route it through a server in the UK, giving you a UK IP address. This will allow you to watch BBC iPlayer as if you were in the UK. Many VPN providers offer this service, so finding one that meets your needs should not be difficult. I recommend checking out ExpressVPN. They have a great reputation, and their service is simple and easy to use. Alternatively, you can try Thunder VPN (thunder vpn for pc). Happily, it's free and simple to use. I hope this helps!

There are many VPN providers that offer secure access to BBC TV and allow torrenting. Some popular options include ExpressVPN and NordVPN.

I use Nordvpn, not bad but sometimes a little jumpy, although the connection seems to be a little jumpy from time to time. However, it does work, only haven't worked out how to get it on my tv yet without using the laptop!

I tried free VPN but it is strange when you use address with all other users and traffic is devided ...

I vas looking for the hosting for my website and found HostaBlanca ... not sure it is possible to post links here. 

They give VPN with dedicated IP for 6 Euro with hudge amount of traffic and speed.I know that my data is protected and nobody connects with my ip.... It is better when you doing good things afcause... Dedicated IP means you are not hidden in internet, but most protected - it is all i need.

+1 for Nord VPN - we've used them for around 3 years now and get consistently good performance. Their pricing is fair vs. other providers. The app is also simple to use.

Alastair from https://movingtospain.com - happy to help if I can.

Apparently Nord also has a "mesh" facility which enables getting around the Netflix problem.
