    PureVPN is giving a good discount for Cyber Monday and I wondered what folks here thought about their service? Is it fast and reliable? I'm wanting it for encryption over public Wifi on my laptop and android phone. TIA for your thoughts.

    70%o ff is a geat discount. But they say they have 75000+ IP addresses. This could mean speed, but yet more surely it means weak anonymity (unless they have 1 million customers): you can not be anonymous when you are alone on an ip.

    Sure :) CyberGhost has provided good performance with quite a few servers close to my location. What I don't like about it is even though I connect to servers in the USA LastPass perceives that I'm located in Romania. Google searches and websites display in foreign languages, etc. Changing the DNS to US based servers doesn't solve the problem. This is an inconvenience that I don't want to deal with.
