I use the VPN from riseup.net, it's free with their e-mail service but
you need to 'apply' for an account and wait a few days... The best
commercial VPN service I've found is on www.mullvad.net, it's based in
Sweden with no IP logging, unlimited bandwidth and you can even pay
anonymously with BitCoin. They have a simple installer for every
operating system, including Linux. Free to try for three hours, 5
euros/$7 per month thereafter, and worth every cent! ;)
