Answer will vary wildly depending on why you need the VPN. Cost, performance, security, privacy, location and whether they do or do not cooperate with govt. or other entities all vary from one to another. What are you trying to accomplish with the VPN?
Tor is slow though. It should be used if anonymity is paramount. However, if you just want to make sure that strangers aren't sniffing your traffic when connected to a public wifi connection, a commercial VPN would provide faster connections.
ZenNUTS said: I read a little bit about Tor but my understanding is that is for .onion sites only. A proxy or VPN is needed for browsing regular website if one want to stay anonymous. Is that right?
With Tor, you can view all of the internet via an anonymous connection. So a regular site would see you as connected from a random Tor exit node.
Tor can also be used to anonymize a server, meaning the server is "hidden" inside the Tor network, which is what the .onion sites are. When you use Tor to connect to one of those, both you and the server are anonymous.
