The paid VPNs are usually the ones that work.

Just do a lot of research.
Check out rankings and reviews, these will help you the most.
a good one is https://www.vpntesting.com

You have to ask yourself: How are you going to use it?
Do you need hardcore security or just to unblock content?

Personally, I just chose the one with best history record on safety and technical details. You can read about it here: ExpressVPN review

If you want to use it just for unblocking content I would rather go with proxy. Some of them are free. If you have find a suitable one, be sure to google them and their wikipedia page if they have a decent history. Usually there will be articles if they have leaked data, etc.

Good luck.
