    Depends on what you're wanting to use the VPN for, and on what clients? Just a windows laptop? From your Cellphone also?

    Good site, seems well researched and trustworthy.
    There are all sorts of dodgy VPNs doing bad stuff, you have to be careful, especially at the free/cheap end.

    Personally I use Private Internet Access.

    Good worldwide server coverage, the app works on multiple platforms including iOS/Android, can be used up to 5 different devices simultaneously and the speed is pretty decent.

    It makes use of OpenVPN which is pretty popular and known for its "robustness".

    I find the pricing quite reasonable, I bought my 2-year license for just US$60.

    I have tried a few free offerings but found that most had really poor speeds [like below 1Mbps] and this was when I was on a 50Mb VDSL connection.

    Hope that helps.
