Speed up your network connection with a VPN

Check out our VPN deals of the week

Sometimes our Internet speeds don’t live up to those promised by our ISPs when we signed up for that premium package.

While there are a number of ways to speed up your Wi-Fi, if your bandwidth is being throttled by your service provider your network speeds will always take a hit.  By using a VPN to connect to the Internet though, you can bypass bandwidth throttling and truly take advantage of your plan.

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.

Here are some of the best deals we found for getting the most out of our Internet connections:
