The UK’s Investigatory Power’s Bill, commonly known as the “Snooper’s Charter,” is now officially slated to become part of UK law, putting Britain under "the most extreme surveillance in the history of western democracy", as Edward Snowden noted.

In order to prepare for what seems to be an inevitability, NordVPN offers measures to help avoid any snooping. As mentioned by BBC, we are introducing two new Double VPN servers for increased protection, multi-hopping UK–NL and N–UK. This means that these servers will ensure all traffic is encrypted not once but twice and securely tunneled between the two servers.

So is this the same as double-hop provided by Windscribe VPN?

Thanks

@HarborFront in case Windscribe offers a similar concept it's probably comparable to NordVPNs offer. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with Windscribe yet. Might check them out later though since everybody here is raving about their service. ;)
I'm not sure what NordVPN is offering but I know that Windscribe offers double-hop.

Thanks

Too many USA & UK based options here so they are rubbish anyway. Only PureVPN, ibVPN, Nord and VPN.Asia are based outside all others comply with DMCA and are under NSA surveillance laws (so they basically retain customer data & give it to security agencies).

The UK has the Investogatory Powers Bill so no point getting a UK based service either. They are neither VPN nor privacy service they are open databases for MI5 and the GCHQ. Not too impressed!

EkspressVpn got NAT-Firewall+p2p,and is residing at virgin islands,that means better laws for the customer than if it was residing in the US.
VyprVpn owns all their servers around the globe and is operating them themselves they also got Nat-Firewall but do not allow p2p,they are residing in Switzerland witch means better privacy laws for us,the customers,plus they have developed a technology called chameleon,that technology is better when it comes to geo-restricted material E.T.C:)
