Download from BitTorrent Anonymously with BTGuard

VPN service offers file-sharing customers the kind of privacy and security needed when trying to evade the prying eyes of anti-P2P companies trying to prevent copyright infringement.

BitTorrent users face a gradually escalating game of cat and mouse as anti-piracy companies and ISPs institute ever increasing methods of seeking out and preventing copyright infringement these days.

BTGuard is among the growing number of VPNs catering to the BitTorrent community, and it isn’t shy about telling customers what kind of protection it’s offering.

“With BTGuard downloading through BitTorrent becomes 100% anonymous & safe,” says the site.

“Your downloads will be routed through Canada which enforces some of the strictest privacy laws in the world, ensuring the protection of your identity, even from your own ISP!”

How it works is when you connect to BTGuard they create a ‘Tunnel’ between you and them. All of the data in this ‘Tunnel’ is then encrypted so only you and BTGuard know the contents of what is being sent.

It’s also an effective solution for those ISPs that throttle BitTorrent as was the case with the case with US ISP Comcast a few years ago.

So how much does it cost? If you sign up for a year it’s about $5 bucks p/mo, otherwise it’s about $6.95 p/mo with a variety of other short term signup deals to choose from.

It’s more than worth it these days, especially if you use public tracker sites like the Pirate Bay or isoHunt. Even Demonoid hosts a number of public torrents that should give users a cause for some concern.

Stay tuned.

I've been interested in P2P since the early, high-flying days of Napster and KaZaA. I believe that analog copyright laws are ill-suited to the digital age, and that art and culture shouldn't be subject to the whims of international entertainment industry conglomerates. Twitter | Google Plus

I emailed BTGuard asking about this. Well see what they say. I’m on a 12Mbit connection, I’ll be shocked if they claim they can deliver that same bandwidth.

Just bought/dl'd it. Have to say I'm impressed. Have hit 700kb and it seems to be stable; no dropped connections, no extreme drops in speed. For 7 bucks a month, it's more than suitable for someone who by most standards is a moderate BT user.

I use Hide My Ass Pro. It's more like $12 a month but the advantages are that you can connect (protect) 3 computers at once and you have over 20 servers you can connect through located in many countries. Yes, even Canada.You can easily get around the ISOhunt block with this service and yet quickly pick a US server if you want to use Hulu.I am quite happy with the versatility of Hide My Ass and I absolutely require the 3 connections so I will be sticking with them.

I have a 35Mbit connection and my max speed using this service so far is about 100k, which is dreadful. I don't regret paying the $6 to discover this, because if they can get this service up and running as advertised, it would be a beautiful thing.

Unlimited speeds for $7/month? Sounds too good to be true, and you know what they say...I emailed BTGuard asking about this. Well see what they say. I'm on a 12Mbit connection, I'll be shocked if they claim they can deliver that same bandwidth.
