Why do I have to pay for my privacy, can’t I just use Tor Network since it is a free service?

Tor’s Internet connection speed leaves much to be desired and it's considered by security researchers to be completely unsecure. In effect, it’s unusable.

“As one of the partners of VPN4ALL, I was looking for a high level of privacy and security for myself. I tried a number of free proxies and Tor. They were all unusable for a day to day constant use of security. I want to be protected ALL of the time not just sometimes. I want to be able to turn on my VPN and leave it working all day and all night without any bother or loss of speed. That product just didn’t exist, so I developed it with our technical team and now VPN4ALL is available 4ALL!”

TOR Network Security: At the last BlackHat Europe technical security conference held in Amsterdam, one of the speakers, Moxie Marlinspike (Security Researcher), presented an excellent demonstration using a TOR network node that he created and added to the network, gained quick access to a large number of passwords for all services of many of the users whose traffic TOR circulated by special TOR node.

So do you really want to use TOR? Or a free proxy with even less security and more network hackers around free proxies?
