    It should not be a problem. I have used a VPN connection for many years. There are occasional problems when an internet provider may have blacklisted one or more of the VPN IPs (e.g. when they are used by malware or spammers), in which case you may have to select a different IP/location.

    You do not have to host the client software on your router, but you can, if desired. VPN connections will almost universally be slower than what you get from most providers. My base speed from my provider is 62 mbps, but only about 1-3 mbps when connected via VPN. So putting your router on VPN will slow everything on your network down, dramatically in some cases.
