Would a helpful soul confirm this is so?
Thank you.
Yes, you would still need an Internet connection from your ISP.

The VPN sits between you and the ISP.

There's a comprehensive article about VPNs starting on page 43 of issue 458 of WU. According to this new article, the previous one about VPNs was in issue 443 back in Feb/March this year:

I would like to suggest to check out these 6 ways on how to choose a VPN service.

I believe for me price and server locations are the most important factors to consider while choosing a VPN.

Would love to know what people here consider to be important features associated with a VPN service while making a decision.

That's a really nice article, thanks! I agree with many things in it, however from my own experience with VPN services I can add that the most important things in their case are:


- stealth tools which prevent possible blocking for the VPN (now it sadly happens on many sites)
- wide choice for your virtual locations (it's really convinient when there are many of them to choose but such option is avaliable only in case of paid VPN services)
- safe privacy policy (anonymity is one of the main things why we use VPN at all and good providers don't save logs of who you are and what you connected to)
- good customer support (it's an important thing in case of all paid VPN services)
- no limits for reconnections (you can connect as many times as you like)

NordVPN which was mentioned here earlier is really good, I liked it too. Also as the best ones are considered ExpressVPN, PureVPN, KeepSolid VPN Unlimited https://www.vpnunlimitedapp.com/en/e...al-vpn-service , SaferVPN and CyberGhost.
