You need a good VPN for:
- Escape your Government
- Access blocked content (eg. Netflix, HBO, Torrent)
- Condom for "free WiFi"

Even if your government is nice, pay a fucking ~$2 in BTC per month (currently with a 75% Halloween rebate + 10% if you pay in BTC) to make yourself comfortable with it.
At least set it up on your PC & Mobile and always use it before you connect to a free WiFi hotspot.

VPN to use
I use, advertise, and market TZone. They're inexpensive and there is no known hacking incident so far. (heh)
