Careful with that, in some countries, anti-piracy outfits are monitoring torrent releases and sending out c&d letters in bulk to people who they catch downloading/uploading with a domestic IP.

Particularly a problem in Germany, that's why it's best to use a torrent-friendly VPN in countries like that.

What are good provider choices? Or even what countries are open and have enough connectivity?

I would recommend looking at seedboxes /servers where you run your torrent client/. You can then download the files from the server. 10-15 years ago, it was pretty cheap, so I can't imagine it hasn't gotten dirt cheap by now.
