Plug for Private Internet Access. Insanely cheap (only $2.66 per month), and there are no data limits or concerns about being part of some whacky research project etc. Also extremely fast- my Internet service is 35mbps down and 5mbps up and with the VPN I get 35mbps down and 5mbps up.
hah, almost no one in this thread understands what vpns do.
You mean I can use it for things other than pr0n?
For those missing the point, a Virtual Private Network essentially connects your machine to someone else's network. In this case the U of Tsukuba, or some other network of theirs. Now when you connect to the internet, websites think you're actually physically located in or around their virtual network, and are allowed access as such. This may have its advantages or not. There may or may not be restrictions.
For example, sign up for this service and once hooked up try going to Google.com and see the difference since you're not connecting from the US any more...
VPNs can also be very useful to connect to an actual network you care about, such as home or work, and connect to the same devices, resources, etc, as if you were there.
As for this thread, I'll be signing up for an account to play around - then I'll see if I can actually use for anything. Thanks OP!

Sharing copyrighted materials while connected through their VPN would be incredibly stupid. There are VPN services that don't have submit log files under copyright laws for that, hosted in counties like Sweden, Mexico, and China.
Tor is nothing like a VPN you idiots.
Also this is free because they need to collect the data from your internet usage patterns.
I was gonna say the same thing about that Tor post, but then I went ahead and read about this VPN Gate and it IS pretty much structured like Tor--except with this VPN Gate you are only routed to one relay server, while in Tor you are sent across a random combination of multiple relay servers. Also with Tor you are obligated to become a relay server as well.
Thanks for your reply. Too bad, I am one of the few who actually want to go in to mainland China from other countries. Not out of Mainland China like most people inside Mainland China do. Hong Kong and Taiwan VPN and IP are no good to access mainland China web sites.
Nope, tried Japan/Korea/Vietnam servers and none of them allow access to Chinese web sites with TV shows and musics (I'd imagine that's the websites you trying to gain access to as they restrict the access to shows for non-Mainland China IPs)
I am actually talking to some people in China and trying to figure out how much it would cost to run a VPN server based in Mainland China for people who are trying to get into the Great Firewall of China
Never used a VPN before but I've wondered if this is what I need when traveling abroad and trying to access my financial accounts. When I am abroad and try to look at my bank account info, I am blocked for trying to access the website from outside the country. Would this work and would it even be safe to access my financial accounts through a service like this?
