The best VPN deals of the week

Now that summer is upon us, device manufacturers such as HTC have begun to announce their latest flagship phones and the Taiwanese company surprised everyone with its new HTC U11.  This smartphone sports a squeezable body that can be used for opening the camera or any other app on the device.  While the HTC U11 offers a number of improvements over its predecessors, a VPN can truly help you get the most out of this smartphone by allowing you to bypass region blocks, protect your anonymity and stay safe while browsing online.

Most VPN service providers offer services globally and thus charge in US Dollars rather than in local currencies, so we've listed pricing in Dollars for the sake of simplicity.  Bear in mind that when you click through to the actual deals, you may find the prices automatically displayed in pounds, or whatever your native currency may be.

These are some of the best deals we found for taking advantage of your new devices:

1. ExpressVPN - 15 months for only $99.95

2. IVPN - Great Performance for $99.96 a year
