    What do you mean, you're sick of having block sites?
    Who's blocking the sites?

    There is probably a good reason for that.

So you provide yourself with a false sense of security doing what you suggest. From what I read and have confirmed using it the vpn provider I referenced has their servers hosted at Amazon. Using your logic, I'd trust my unencrypted traffic coming out of Amazon's internal network, with millions of transactions flowing through it a day, to be free from hackers more than my local cable modem or DSL connection.
    Well if someone did compromise my dsl modem, they would run up against the firewall. So it's not a false sense of security. You really need to put the tinfoil hat away.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Aren't the laws quite harsh there. I'd be careful bypassing proxies unless you're quite sure that something terrible is not going to happen to you.

    If they compromise your DSL modem they don’ t need to breach your firewall because all of your packets are flowing through the modem. But whatever, keep on giving people advise that makes no sense.

    It's good but it's very slow. Think dial up speeds a lot of the time.

    Thats why,i am just sick of sites getting block everyday.Its just getting hard now to surf the internet.Because you can't use p2p,torrents or any file sharing program.I am having 4mbps and even if some trackers are online in torrents and with around 500 seeders.I get only 15KB/sec max.So thats why and tried proxies too doesnt work here.
