      $5/month for privacy seems fair.

          VPN to your home if you are out, and get a better ISP if you don't trust yours, and Tribler or tor if you want

            Mozilla was just reselling mullvad.net last year. Have they established their own infrastructure since?

              A VPN to your home just routes the traffic to your home. No different than if you set yourself up as an open Tor node.

              Maybe people should quit bellyaching on social media (this isn't specific to Phoronix forums - I'm just generalizing) about their ISP and just get the direct number for their Chief Privacy and/or Technology Officer and get an on-the-record account of their privacy policy and ask them hard questions about whether or not they monetize user data, and how they do it, as well as an account of who they do it with. Then you at least have something to back up what you want to bitch about and can use their words against them in a public forum. Remember, companies use scare tactics to sell you shit. The IT industry is full of that, all the way back to when anti-virus software was created.

              The Internet is made for making connections. If you want privacy, don't Internet. Go outside maybe. And leave your phone at home.

                Ah VPNs, selling false hope of privacy and security for the fools since forever.

                  Not really. They work over Mullvad. You can go as far as send them an anonimous letter with 5€ and your auto-generated account id if you wish. I'm not kidding.

                    Are they using Mullvad for the commercial rollout which costs money though? Was the beta free? Personally I don't really care either way - I wouldn't use it.
