£3.85 per month • torguard.net
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.
TorGuards interface appeared somewhat dated to us If your mainly interested in protecting BitTorrent traffic it’s worth considering but as there trial version, so it might be worth trying to for one month, before signing up for the whole year.
