De­spite what its name sug­gest TorGuard is not in any way re­lated to the Tor browser project. The Tor in the name refers to ‘tor­rents’. This makes it a great choice for those look­ing to avoid ISP P2P throt­tling. It of­fers a choice of over 1,600 servers in 50 coun­tries, and says it does no log­ging what­so­ever. Fur­ther­more than are no restric­tions on speeds and it of­fers its own DNS sev­ers. It runs OpenVPN and will do so on Win­dows, macOS, Linux, An­droid and iOS. In the US, it’s even pos­si­ble to buy routers with TorVPN pre­flashed onto the firmware. If you buy an an­nual fee the monthly price of £3.85 seems rea­son­able though it’s not that the most af­ford­able in our se­lec­tion. A po­ten­tial is­sue with TorGuard is that it’s based in the US, which means it’s off the ta­ble for any­one that doesn’t want to use a VPN in a ‘Five eyes’ coun­try. It also will not let you ac­cess US Net­flix from the UK.
