Looking for a VPN.

So i use to use NordVPN, which is the most secure i know with the best policies but there software is very buggy and i use to get constant drop outs with inconsistent speeds.

Anyone else have any other recommendation. Must be able to use on the home router and phone.
Speed and connection stability is important.

PrivateInternetAccess. I think it'll run you to about 30/year.

it's more than that, I used to pay them about 7 quid a month when I was with PIA.

now I used CyberGhost VPN as I got a year sub from a humble bundle a while ago - it's less good than PIA, but it's cheaper for a year. When the sub is done i'm going back to PIA as it's the best.

PIA have a whole multitude of ways to connect, including being able to dial an IPSEC tunnel from your router, or ssl vpn, or they have a little app which you can use.

all the normal stuff like no logs, etc. etc. etc. etc.

I'm paying $40/year for PIA. I think doing it monthly is considerably more expensive though.

I didn't realise could do it annually, 100% going to do that when I sign back up again!

CyberGhost is crap, but got it with a $15 humble bundle for a whole year, so can't really complain.

Another vote for AirVPN here: zero logging, guaranteed, which PIA doesn't. I get shiny pennies if you use this link, or I don't get shiny pennies if you use this link instead.

Same way any of 'em do: by telling you they don't keep logs while hopefully not crossing their fingers behind their backs.

They're still listed as problematical for a number of reasons, including being in the US (Fourteen Eyes member and 'Enemy of the Internet' status), while AirVPN is based in Italy so gets Fourteen Eyes status but not 'Enemy of the Internet'. They also meet the PrivacyTools criteria, which PIA doesn't.

EDIT: Although, at the moment, their homepage is borked and showing this image...

I bet Italy's internet police are as bad as their postal system too - so that's a prime spot for the vpn service to be hosted

I signed up to PIA last night after reading this thread, I had been meaning to do it for a while tbh.

No issues during sign up and I have all my traffic running through the PIA VPN from my pfSense router over OpenVPN.
I also now have my phone set to connect to my home domain through my Sophos SSL VPN.
