    My PIA subscription has expired and I would like to change providers due to continuing issues with the pc client (low speeds and sometimes being unresponsive). Every site I check for reviews have radically different "best" lists so I decided to ask my tech savvy brethren here at AF. I use it mainly for torrenting and my main concerns, in order of preference are: 1) no logs, 2)speed, 3) price

    Please no cut and paste posts from Google... I've done the research. I just want your first hand experience and opinion.

    Thank you in advance for your time and expertise

    Don't know that they are "the best", but they are damn good, and at the time I chose them, they had more server locations than anyone else. That is the service I am using at home on my desktop PC, they will also allow you to install the mobile versions on other devices w/o charge.

    PureVPN

    on my mobile though, I am now using AdGuard VPN because it blocks all adverts, even those porn links and flashy adverts in our Android apps. if they can't see the Internet, they just don't display.

    Astrill or Turbo VPN, and that's first hand experience of using them in China, so I can tunnel through the GFW

    Astrill is $6 a month, Turbo VPN is free, but can be slow.

    I tried nord. Speed went down to less than 1mbps! After trying to help me over the phone and email, they refunded me. Went back to PIA.

    i use Adguard and really like this. As i remember the best Adguard ad blocker is banned on Google Play (maybe it's due to an advertisement policy and we only can get this app from developer site.

    my VPN app is psiphon.
