VPN Comparison


This table compares roughly 30 major VPNs. Aside from price, here are some important things to look out for:

The price/month is the cost of purchasing 1 month on a one-off basis. The price/year is the total price of a full year. Most providers give discounts if you purchase a full year up-front: divide the yearly price by 12 to find how much you would save.
