    Hello
    if you use a vpn on your computer, will anything look suspicious to your ISP? Like, will they see anything unusual going on, for example, unusual amount of traffic, or too much bandwidth being used by you?
    I will not be downloading torrents, just general web surfing. but since I dont know how vpn works and all the technical details, I am not sure what exactly happens along the line between the computer and the vpn.
    Will anything appear unusual to your ISP?

    No it won't. ISPs are used to traffic from VPNs. Especially in the business sector. A lot of enterprise customers will use VPNs for every mobile employee they have.

    Also it depends on which type of VPN you are talking about. PPTP or OpenVPN are the two main VPNs. I recommend PPTP though.

    If you are looking for a VPN contact me. U.S. static I.P. :D

    As owninizer said, ISPs are used to VPN and don't bother about it, since it is encrypted well enough for them not to able to see anything.

    If you decide to use torrents, just be aware that you can get into trouble with your VPN provider, that has your payment information,
    which means that you will not be able to go to the court and say that someone stole your Wifi credentials :D

    Not all VPN services keep activity logs. Some only track bandwidth. Consider one that uses BitCoin or Moneybookers. Remember US-based VPNs are subject to the Patriot Act. Look for a Canadian-based VPN or one outside the US that provides international IPs. Hope that is some help. PPTP is easier to setup. OpenVPN is stronger but has a small learning curve.
