US based I believe. I use PIA and am pretty happy with it. Occasionally their servers get blocked by Waze routing servers (and other such vanilla sites) but likely that's normal with any decent volume VPN.
Speeds are more than adequate for browsing, torrenting or whatever you want to do.
If you used a VPN from somewhere without a vigorous legal system, you can't really trust what your VPN provider is doing with your data.
I use PIA and while it works absolutely fabulous for my needs, it seemingly wouldn't work for full time usage as too many times their IPs get blocked by various mainstream sites, making those sites less than fully functional.
The non-techies in house can't deal with that unfortunately.
