Windows 10: VPN.ac - A good VPN service?

    VPN.ac - A good VPN service?


    There is this website called Restore Privacy that touts it as one of the best. The best it proclaims is just way too expensive and I didn't get very fast speeds when I tried the trial. But the website owner seems like he put a lot of effort into analyzing the best VPN service.

    Of course, it could all be a scam in which he collects a commission from the VPN's he promotes. It doesn't seem so but people are getting craftier and craftier. And morality seems to be thrown out the window a lot. So, I'm never sure.

    Anyone heard of VPN.ac and have any ideas if it's any good?

    Thanks for the referral. I checked the site out. It's hard to tell these days which sites is just an advertisement. To be honest, there really is no way to tell unless they make a mistake. All of the major review sites are scams now. Look at toptenreviews. Or Tom's Hardware. Just got bought up by a big hedge fund and it's obvious that the only way they are going to make money their millions back by getting money from the seller of the #1 product. There is no way that advertisement revenue will ever make enough for the website.

    Yelp now removes negative reviews if you pay them. And they will grey out good reviews unless you pay them like $2k/month.

    Amazon reviews are not like totally untrustworthy. Before they would write at the end that the product was discounted and stuff but I dn't see that anymore but just all 5 star reviews.
