Can anyone recommend a trustworthy cheap VPN service for occasional use?

I use the WiTopia personalVPN service from time to time, https://www.witopia.com/. $5.99 per month for the basic service.

I've heard good things about NordVPN too. With Netflix, it's an ever moving target as they keep adding more IP addresses to their list of blacklisted IPs. The big VPN providers, as you'd imagine, get targeted first.

On another note, the trick to getting them cheap is to watch out for special offers or deals. They usually pop up during the usual times (Black Friday, Christmas, Easter and so on). I pay around $30 a year for unlimited access. Most of the top providers have clients and apps for every platform imaginable. Some of them even have clients that run on routers that run embedded OSes.

The biggest of them all, PIA, was doing a promotion a few days back for 2 years of access for just under $60.

A little bit looked and found promo code for yearly subs, what means 48$/year, coupon code "coupon70off".
Tried to enter on their site and it's still valid https://nordvpn.com/en/checkout/?Annual

I've been using AirVPN, one of the smaller providers, for about 3 years now and never had any problems. I can't really compare it to other services as I've only ever used AirVPN. Speeds are generally good when I'm connected and when testing. Just did a quick check on Thinkbroadband and got 68Mbps in the clear and 65Mbps through VPN.

They also provide a cross platform client tool (Windows/Linux/OSX) though it's easy enough to setup OpenVPN on own.

I too use AirVPN. Great service at a low cost.
