Well, I'm now on my third VPN.
Started with Tunnelbear, but it disconnected so much I got pissed off and left.
Moved on to Zenmate, which is ok, but, it stops Usenet and Torrents dead in their tracks betweem around 4pm - 11pm, so started looking around for another vpn.
Am now with ExpressVPN, mainly because it has Aussie servers, but I also checked vpn review sites and it rates well.
So, have been with ExpressVPN for a couple of weeks now, and couldn't be happier. it connects with very few problems, is the fastest vpn I've used, and doesn't appear to throttle anything at any time.
I have it set up so it's ON all the time from booting up the PC, so absolutely everything I do online is through the vpn.
And having Aussie servers means I can do anything, like Gmail without appearing to be from another country and raise Googles security suspicions about where I'm logging in from.
So far, really good! looks like I've found the one to stay with...
