I don't use any provider's VPN service.  I stick to Tor and my own
proxies for certain functions.

What exactly is the use-case you're looking to satisfy?

I tend to be suspicious of VPN providers.

This piece works through some of the threat modeling around VPNs v Tor v
SSH tunnels:


There's another doc I can't find at the moment which is something like
"Ten questions you should ask your proxy/vpn provider" which basically
dismantles the argument that VPNs are an anonymity solution.
