Linux Format - - ROUNDUP -

We’ve tried to select VPNs that of­fer a lit­tle more than the usual service, but if you’re happy with the pri­vacy ba­sics, there are plenty of more main­stream al­ter­na­tives around. IPVan­ish ( www.ipvan­ish.com) claims to be the “world’s fastest VPN” with 500+ servers in 60+ servers. It’s speedy, and has Win­dows, Mac and mo­bile clients, al­though Linux users will have to set up the sys­tem man­u­ally. VPN Un­lim­ited ( www.vp­nun­lim­itedapp.com) has a Linux client and low-cost weekly plans. PureVPN ( www.purevpn.com) also gives you a Linux client and servers in 140+ coun­tries, and NordVPN ( www.nordvpn. com) can route its traf­fic over Tor for an ad­di­tional level of pro­tec­tion.

Don’t rule out free VPNs en­tirely. Many have strict band­width lim­its – 500MB a month is typ­i­cal, some­times it’s even less – but Wind­scribe gives you a gen­er­ous 10GB. You only get eight lo­ca­tions, mostly in the US, UK, and Europe, and per­for­mance is av­er­age, but it’s bet­ter than some com­mer­cial prod­ucts and one of the best free ser­vices around.
