I've been using Proton VPN again. I have the free tier and it's really good. There is no p2p support but that's not the main reason I use it.

Using free wifi a lot of protocols and sites are blocked. The free tier let's me run my apt updates and access git repos that are weirdly blocked.

I can do this with tor but it's not always a slick.

If I torrent it's usually with a spun up VPN, torrent, and then scp back to me. Might be extra steps but it works for me.

One of the reasons I like Proton over other free VPN services, is the ovpn files. I'd rather just use OpenVPN instead of installing some proprietary software.

@art
Are you talking about running or wanting to run openvpn as a client? Because rolling up a openVPN server is an absolute pain in the butt...

@CarbonCatalyst No, I just meant using ovpn files with a VPN service is better than trying to install some propriety application.
