    Can anyone recommend a good VPN? Obviously not for any truly nefarious purposes but because my ISP likes to throttle connections.

    I've tried SwissVPN and although it's very cheap, it is quite slow compared to my regular connection.

    Why would they not throttle you if you used a VPN? Data usage is data usage, surely.

    I think they like to throttle certain types of data. Video-streaming appears to get hit when I try to watch a full HD video.

    Bumping this as I've been having more and more issues with my local Thai ISP blocking sites I want to access.

    Having the option to exit in the UK and the US would be quite nice as it would allow me easier access to local stuff like iPlayer.

    Just tried Tunlr and no effect, still getting:
    [code]No data received
    Unable to load the web page because the server sent no data.
    Here are some suggestions:
    Reload this web page later.
    Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data.[/code]

    Same thing for the last couple of weeks, but can access the site through a Proxy.

    I would have thought Thailand had all the good sites already.

    Any good free VPNs? I was using Ultrasurf but seems like China have managed to get it shut down over the last couple of days... :(

    VPNUK as mentioned above worked like a charm for me.

    I've previously used VPNUK but found their speed to be slowly getting worse so I migrated to iVPN. They're an EFF member too.
