I've been looking into using a VPN this afternoon after i found out about the IP Bill being passed last November here in the UK, and i had absolutely no idea!
As i live in the UK, would you still recommend PIA? PureVPN and VyprVPN looked ok but after some reading, it seems if the company is based in one of the '14 eye's' countries, your data can be forcefully handed over to authorities etc. Not that i do anything untoward, but if i'm paying for a service, it would be nice to know i'm getting what i pay for. Also, when my details are put into the R1, do all devices use the VPN, including those in hyperlane? or can i select which use it and which don't?
I have no issues with PIA...
You can do a speedtest for your server here:
As for another company, the only other one I would try is NordVPN
but I've had some issues connecting and slow speeds with them. On PIA I get 220 out of my 240 Mbps speeds. Either way, if you're gonna connect through your router your speeds are limited to ~11 Mbps.
Just as an FYI also, when using the Netduma as your VPN it does not use your VPN DNS servers so that's kind of a big deal for privacy. I would recommend running it on your device, or use PIA's DNS servers in your Netduma settings if you go with them.
Test if your data is being leaked on:
