Re: "ut I am over 40."
where is your vpn terminating to?
who owns the end point?
can you trust them?
a vpn to an unknown untrustworthy intermediary intercepting and relaying all your traffic is far worse than just using a raw uk retail BB connection.
Some people have no real comprehension of what a vpn does for you or how it works. Depending on your usecase it may not be beneficial for you.
