best deals, no tail stuck
Every week a series of threads are created on the TB forum with questions that make our readers curious. Intel or AMD: which processor is better? Do I need to use a signal repeater of the same brand as my router? Check, in the following lines, everything that happened in the Community in the first week of 2023.
The large number of available services confuses users (Image: Vitor Pádua/APK Games)
A question about VPN was the most commented subject of the week in the TB Community. User Robert James asked about the cost-effectiveness of services available on the internet, see below.

In response to the user, several community members came up with plans and detailed pros and cons of some of the most popular VPN services on the web.
“I’m currently using Proton’s suite, which has e-mail, calendar, Virtual HD and VPN. I took the BF for 2 years at once and it cost US$7.19 per month, the normal price is US$12 per month or US$8 for the 2-year plan, but if you only want the VPN it costs US$5 per month for the plan 2 years or $10 monthly.”
LekyChan, Community member Our friend Centauro brought details about NordVPN:
“I don’t know if it’s the best value for money, but in terms of stability, nordVPN is pretty good and they offer servers in both Brazil and the US. On their website it has the price in reais (R$294.30 in the most basic plan contracting for 2 years, which is R$10.90 per month) but I don’t know if they charge in reais, since they warn that the IOF can be charged.”

The matter that generated the most debate in the last week was the CPF Protection Service, launched by the State of São Paulo.
In order to prevent fraud through the registration of individuals, it is now possible to request the blocking of personal data for the amount of R$ 3.77.
In this way, information such as the CPF will be prevented from being used by third parties without the owner’s consent. However, it is important to highlight that the interruption is only valid for one month. Understand
how to use the service through the Redesim portal.
Another subject that was highlighted in early 2023 was the
TIM signal availability in 100% of Brazilian municipalitiesdue to the purchase of Oi Móvel.
However, it is important to point out that having coverage in all Brazilian municipalities does not mean that the entire national territory has TIM’s cellular signal. Anatel determines that a municipality can be considered served when at least 80% of the urban area of the headquarters district manages to connect to the operator’s network.
Credit card IOF must be zeroed by 2028 (Image: Disclosure / C6 Bank)
Finally, a change in the IOF tax on credit cards also warmed up the TB Community in the first week of the year.
From the 2nd of January,
the IOF (acronym for Tax on Financial Operations) on international purchases increased from 6.38% to 5.38%. This amendment follows the decree by the government in March 2022, whose objective is to zero the IOF by 2028. Check out details in the article produced by Felipe Freitas.
