I would like to introduce myself here briefly. I've been in the IT and Telecommunications industry since 1996, and of course for an ISP. On the one hand, I have believed in the freedom and innovation of the Internet in recent decades, but today I am a bit disillusioned.
Freedom on the Internet
Freedom on the Internet is being restricted more and more by laws and regulations. Data retention and unbureaucratic inquiries from the police and secret services are increasingly undermining the protection of citizens' privacy. Basically, in the last few years politics has only tried to legalize the current situation by law. (Data retention or what they call it today). Of course, I also think that criminals should be prosecuted. However, not everyone who is spied on here is also a criminal, actually only very few!
Terror seeks its way to communication in any case, that can not change the abolition of the privacy of millions!
I find it even more than cynical, if elected representatives now also think that just the encryption of data make the terror possible! It is also not really funny to make Edward Snowden co-responsible, as the terrorists have learned to protect themselves.
I experience cases almost every day where civil rights are simply ignored. Control of civil rights exists, but only on paper.
Blocked content on the Internet.
The copyright industry of course lives from collecting royalties and down payments for the publication of the works you have created. one should also respect that. But it is absurd if the US copyright lawyers from a streaming partner such as Netflix get money for the broadcast, and the Germans will feel sorry for them if they want to sell the same films again in Germany. That is why it is only legitimate, from my understanding, if you can access content abroad freely and under the same conditions as anywhere. VPN makes this possible now. It is also weird if GEMA or programs financed by compulsory fees are not also available in the media libraries. Where are the thousands of productions? And why, when I'm on vacation, why can not I see ZDF news on the internet?
Well, none of this has any logic (at least none that are not labeled as conspiracy theories), but there are ways how you can make the Internet an "unsupervised" and "unlimited" place for yourself again.
That's why I use it myself VPNProvider and provider and would like to submit on this page also my experiences and a rating. Hopefully, you can also get an idea of the providers, and then decide for yourself.
