Looking for a new VPN

Well i've been with Private Internet Access since late September 2015 and its now time to move on so i've cancelled my yearly renewal with them.

I don't think they are offering value for money anymore as i've seen a dramatic decrease in speed + more and more random disconnects from their service.

I'm just wondering what VPN does others on here use and would you recommend?

Thanks.

I've been using VPN Area for a while now. I highly rate it. £59 per year ATM. Up to 6 devices.

Re: Looking for a new VPN

£59 a year is a little steep isnt it?

It's cheaper if you buy 3 years at a time.

Paul, there's no need to go on the offensive and act like you are.

Some people u know use VPN's for legitimate reasons.

There is no need for you to be an ass either, it was a perfectly valid question.

Re: Looking for a new VPN

The main reasons i use a VPN are these....

I go for treatment regular in hospital and while using their internet i like to secure my traffic.

And i like to unblock youtube videos and netflix videos that are not available for viewing in the UK.

So much for your assertion about legitimate use.

Re: Looking for a new VPN

Progers PIA served me well since 2015 but for weeks ive been having issues with servers being slow and all sorts of random disconnections.

I have reported it numerous times and nothing seems to have been done.

On the UK servers i used to get around 80mb on a speed test which is a large drop from 350MB but i put up with it, the other night before signing upto ExpressVPN i couldnt get over 12mb on the London server.

Im getting double the speeds on ExpressVPN i was getting on PIA.
