Can anyone recommend a trustworthy, no-log, fast VPN?

I suspect a lot of people are doing these comparisons at the moment! 
I was doing similar recently (we also have batshit issues like this in the UK, but ours is insane government rather than greedy corps).  I'm mostly looking at PureVPN and NordVPN

I prefer PureVPN's set-up, but they are Hong Kong cs Nord in panama. I suspect Panama are less easy to get data out of.

>> issues like this

Could someone elucidate? What are the issues? What are the implications?

Curious minds would like to know.

US issue : ISPs want to collect data on what their customers do only and sell it to advertisers. Government seems to be supporting this.
UK issue : Government wants ISPs to collect data on what their customers do online and give access to it to all sorts of public servants without any real controls on its use.

I've been aith AirVPN for a few years now, absolutely solid, cheap, guaranteed minimum of 4Mbps up/down but i've never seen it less than 6Mbps down and 12 up (rarely).

They have shitloads of servers all over the world, great support, knowledgable people on the forum etc etc

If you sign up for it remind me to post the code for batch files to ensure no DNS leaks (due to windows dns server search order).

Things have sure changed since that old cartoon:

I was planning on giving AirVPN a try, mostly due to the positive comments in the VPN comparison articles here: https://torrentfreak.com/

Very timely thread.

I'm looking at Cloak.  Mainly because it promises to be easy, seamless and Easy, across all my devices.  MacOS and iOS devices only.

For you Windows users, I'll hold your beer.

Quite a few blanks in that chart and it's a year old so best to check for any updated features.
