With the recent data retention shenanigans, you might have put serious thought into setting up a VPN (if you're not already for circumventing geo-blocks). If you're still considering your options, Private Internet Access is currently offering a good deal on two-year subscriptions.
Spotted by OzBargain user "Dolphin Trainer", PIA is providing its service for $US2.5 per month, or $US59.95 for two years. Normally you'd be paying around $US40 per year, so this works out to be a nice saving, even when you convert it to $78 in local bucks.
Here's what your money gets you:
- Secure VPN Account
- Encrypted WiFi
- P2P and VoIP Support
- PPTP, OpenVPN and L2TP/IPSec
- 5 devices simultaneously
- Multiple VPN Gateways
- Unlimited Bandwidth
- SOCKS5 Proxy Included
- No traffic logs
- Instant Setup
As always, do you research before making a commitment -- not all VPNs are created equal. A small consolation is that it comes with a seven-day money back guarantee, so you won't be stuck if for whatever reason you can't get it working or your speeds are affected significantly.
