Some estimates are that 25% or more of the nodes on the Tor network are run by a single well-funded malicious actor, whose sole goal is to deanonymize users.
These malicious nodes are often middle relays and entrances, so unlike exit nodes which allow hackers to steal Bitcoin, there’s no financial motive for relays other than learning people’s real identities.
Remember, Tor gives you 3 hops on the mixnet, so if there’s a 1 in 4 chance that it’s the enemy, then there’s decent odds you can get a path with 2 or more malicious nodes.
This all comes down to the entrance node, or the one that you use to first get on Tor. Our company can setup your own entrance bridge for you that allows you to truly be anonymous and private. You can use this with Tor browser or Whonix.
The speed of the connection is based on both the location of the server and how good the technical specs are. For maximum speed, you’d want to have the server as physically close to your city as possible. But for maximum privacy, you might opt for a more freedom respecting country.
The entrance is the only one that sees the IP address that’s entering Tor. For about $10 a month, you can get a moderately slower but private entrance (2 CPU/2 GB RAM), and for $20-30 a month you can achieve normal Tor speeds (3 or 4 CPU with 4-6 GB RAM).
