DigitalOcean offers very cheap VPNs starting at just $5 a month, with servers in both US and Europe.
Buy a VPN for less than a Coffee
Since I generally spend more than $5 a day for coffee I thought I'd skip just one coffee a month and treat myself to a VPN. From what I've seen so far their setup isn't as advanced as Linode. But for 1/4 the price it's a bargain.
Now I just have to figure out what to do with it.
