Said about Lantern as an alternative
Four reasons: 1) very unobtrusive, 2) very easy to use, 3) FREE of cost, and 4) open source. Reason # 4 is the most important for me; open source allows you to inspect and compile the software (binary download also an option), which means that you need not trust anyone.

Lantern unblocks internet at wherever you are at and has been tested to work at bypassing censorship.

This is actually similar to the Tor project but the Tor project was made for anonymity, Lantern is made for resisting censorship
