(At the risk of seeming like a corporate shill, here’s another, perhaps my last, technical suggestion for safe, effective P2P)
I recently switched away from Rogers (for the second time). I am now a Teksavvy customer and two weeks in, I’m pretty impressed. The service so far is as advertised: 25mb/s down and 7mb/s up. In real world usage, P2P connections go through my BlackVPN VPN, since while Teksavvy does not traffic shape or otherwise cause me any difficulties, they will surely respond to all legal requirements. I can easily get 2mb/s down on Bittorrent, and (here’s the exciting part), the same 2mb/s up. Additionally, Teksavvy has been a pleasure to do business with.
Check out my previous BlackVPN review for more information about VPNs.
A recent Torrentfreak article collected self-reported data about IP logging from many VPN services, including my current one, BlackVPN. BlackVPN certainly doesn’t come out in the lead in terms of privacy (I would have liked to hear a “no logs, never” response), but doesn’t seem to hold a troubling position either. As a reminder, don’t use the US & UK VPN servers for anything requiring privacy, since these are logged (NL & LT have no logs).
