Ended up paying 16.80 with the tax added on? Was there a way to avoid it? Not that I mind paying the extra 2.80.

I saw that Scott, but if you pay with Paypal it's cheaper. $15 with Paypal

Try clearing browser cache or use a different browser to test.

Some people use it to avoid location tracking by search engines, facebook etc but I myself was on the lookout for a cheap one to get around geolock restrictions such as iplayer and down the line maybe netflix etc.

I had access to iplayer via other means but it's worth it to access a better quality source from bbc site itself.

Other's use it for torrenting purposes, to restrict available info to their own ISP's

That's up to you to decide. It's less than €14 if you pay with Paypal and it's a lifetime sub. Could be worse ways to spend €14. I haven't used it long enough to say it doesn't have issues, but someone else may have advice for you to make up your mind.

No. A 'Lifetime' offer usually only means 3 - 5 years, so you may only end up getting one year of use out of it. Also, NordVPN would be in a completely different class than this.

If just buying to get Netflix and BBC iPlayer, then you may as well wait as there may be different offers in 2 years time.

No, unfortunately that's not what lifetime means in these instances. It is the lifetime of the software. They could kill it and bring out a new version in 3-5 years, or many other things could happen. Or they could rebrand as VPN Unlimited (subsidiary company) and that would also kill any lifetime licence. But the deal is still a good deal if you don't have a vpn.
