I use PIA and am really happy. Good speeds but I'm not sure about latency.

I've used them for a year. Customer support was terrible, my speeds using it are a tenth of my regular speeds, but I'm locked in, so yeah lol.

That's meaningless without knowing how you're using it. Use it on a low-powered PC and go through a server on the other side of the planet, it's going to be very slow. Use it on a high-powered PC and go through a nearby server, it's not bad at all. My torrent app runs in a jail on my NAS and goes through the Toronto server via OpenVPN and it does about 90% of my bandwidth, which is way more than good enough, especially since downloads run overnight. Anything that doesn't complete by morning is just badly seeded.

Definitely not good for Netflix but great for nhl game center. Speed is pretty good when using Canadian servers. They say they don't block torrents, they also offer a socks 5 proxy for that type of stuff.... It's Super fast, I've heard. Downside is their Android app drains battery like crazy.

On my 2nd year, very happy with their services, very low latency with my configuration (Some playing around and testing with different servers may be required) My primary use is for downloading on a low powered raspberry pi nas server.
