Our top pick is ExpressVPN, which offers superb speeds that will meet the needs of most users, but you’ve got other options as well.
ExpressVPN: Our favorite VPN service, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) costs as little as $6.77 per month if you sign up for a one-year contract, and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you just need ExpressVPN for the weekend that the London Series is on, it’s $12.95.
NordVPN: Cheap and secure, NordVPN is just $2.99/month for a three-year contract, while a month of service costs $11.95. NordVPN uses 2048-bit encryption, and makes it easy to use streaming services.
TunnelBear: Performance is just average, but this is one of the simpler VPNs out there, and at $9.99 for one month of service, TunnelBear is a lower-cost option if you just want to use the VPN during the weekend of baseball festivities.
