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?

 

Cheers

I have no issues with PIA...

You can do a speedtest for your server here:

https://www.privatei...ges/network/#GB

 

As for another company, the only other one I would try is NordVPN

 

https://nordvpn.com/free-trial/

 

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.

That's some good info, thanks.

 

Could you tell me why i would only connect at 11Mbps if i use the Duma please? The majority of devices are for web browsing mainly, but i have quite a few and reducing my internet speed that low is a bit rubbish. It would probably mean i would have to remove any streaming devices i have from the VPN too. Also, i'm not against running PIA from each device, but it would make management alot easier through the Duma surely?

Cause the cpu in the router can't handle the encryption/decryption of the data. So it's limited to those speeds.
