Virtual Private Networks are conceptually around for ages. There is 
various protocols to implement them (ssh tunnels, openvpn, ipsec and 

Any tunnel is about as safe and private as it's other end (the internet 
gateway youy will be using instead of your home IP).

I recommend to read up on the concept and it's implementation and then 
rebrowse the services as offered on the net

ps: the piratebay peeps offer vpn services nowadays, and they made it 
their mission not to disclose.

The safest thing however is renting a Virtual Private Server (or better a 
chain of them) as your 'other end' and paying for them with bitcoin or a 
prepaid credit card
