VPNs
Hey guys,

I'm looking to invest in a VPN for some web anonymity.  I've taken a look at TorrentFreak's list and am looking at IPredator, ItsHidden, TorrentPrivacy and BTGuard.

Does anyone have any advice or experience with any of these providers (or any VPN in general)?

Tor is free.  It operates by forwarding TCP connections though.  VPNs operate at the IP layer - a bit different, but Tor is usually sufficient for what I've needed.

I use Tor for light browsing, but Tor doesn't allow Bittorrent traffic.

It's doable, if you don't use UDP trackers (DHT probably won't work either I'd imagine), but it's not recommended.

Sorry that I can't actually give any advice on VPNs though.
