I am looking into setting up a VPN for use in my travels.

I've seen a number of tutorials for setting up a VPN in 8.1 but I have a few questions up front..

Who are reliable VPN providers? [my google was relatively unhelpful]
What do they generally charge?
What are the limitations to a VPN connection?
Can I enable/disable my VPN without causing problems?
