I haven’t seen a dedicated thread for VPN’s and the discussions therein, so here we go.
So a quick explanation, which I’m sure we’re all aware of, what is a VPN?
A virtual private network extends a private network across a public network and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Wikipedia
The next point of concern is what VPNs are out there and to name a few. In no specific order, perhaps just a few of the best known:

So this thread came about as I was considering my options for a VPN. I would need something that I can put dedicated IP into a router or even console configuration. Also, what sort of context are you running a VPN, we have to consider things like exposing us to country locked content that is otherwise available in other countries, not to mention platforms like Netflix or Disney Plus.
What say you all, do you use a VPN and are you comfortable with their rates, and terms and conditions? Let’s open the discussion.
