So my ISP has now started to block torrent sites left and right and from what I can tell, the list of sites getting blocked will keep going. So my question is, is there any recommended VPN programs? I did try VyprVPN a few months ago as it was included in a usenet package before I cancelled but I'm not too keen on signing up for it again for something I'll only use now and again.

Probably cheaper to just find proxy sites.

My experience with proxy sites is that they tend to be slow or filled with ads.

I meant finding mirror sites of the torrent pages you want to visit.

This. Everyone keeps saying 'use proxy, proxy easy, proxy bla bla bla', but when I actually needed a proxy for something, they all failed to fill my needs! I needed to login on a site, they just couldn't process that! So slow, and so cumbersome.

In the end I used Tor, which is kind of slow and buggy too, but it does the job. It's a separate browser, not that userfriendly but gets the job done! It's free too.

Good suggestion, especially the biggest torrent sites out there have several proxy pages!

FoxVPN by RedFox Networks FTW!(5gbit uplink, but the only downside is that the service is exclusive to me >:D)
You could try vpnbook(works with all openvpn/pptp clients and it's pretty fast(+-2-3mbps))

If you already pay for newsgroups, torrents seem pointless. But anyways, I've heard good things about private internet access. No logs, cheap, lots of servers. Lifehacker did a good article on vpns last year:

The reason I stopped using newsgroups was because a lot of NZB indexing sites shut down and I realised I bought the unlimited package but trying to find older stuff on NZB is hit and miss. Cancelled it due to me trying to cut back and save some money.
