VPN Reviews - Tested three

Question

Posted

Over the last few months, I have been trying to find out a good VPN for my needs. Speed was the biggest factor for me. This will not be a in-depth review

[b][size=4]Hide My Ass![/size][/b]

I used them for three years and a pretty good company. They where stable for the most part and they had great guides on different setups. Example would be if you wanted to use pFSense.

Speed: 5/10

I never got about 7Meg down from any server

Stable: 5/10

Price: 7/10

Not the cheapest, but with their great support and many server choices, not bad

The connection would drop many times if left on for hours

Software: 10/10

Their software has been great features and very user friendly.

[b]Private Internet Access[/b]

Speed: 1/10

Never got more than 3 meg from any server

Stable: ?? Didn't use it long enough

Price: 8/10 Great price, crappy service

Software: 3/10 Crashed a lot, had neat features such as port fowarding that did not work
[b]IPVanish[/b]

Speed: 10/10

25meg down

Stable: 10/10 hasn't been down in the last three days

Software: 7/10, could have more options. but it is simple and works well..

Price: 7/10, Kinda high but if you get the 1 year, it is much cheaper.

I've been able to pump 120Mbps down on VyprVPN using a UK Server via my pfSense Firewall.

I have always found VyprVPN to be highly reliable and fast (never checked actual speed though)

I read a lot of reviews on VyprVPN.. They seem to log more information than others. Also, there are a lot of post about people using it and getting letters from their ISP about P2P. If you don't use P2P, it shouldn't be that big of deal.. I don't use torrents, but I don't like how much they log.

Correction, they did not get letters from their ISP, VyprVPN was sending them letters about MPAA, RIAA complaints.

Just checked my logs, I pushed 1.2TB of bandwidth through VyprVPN in December 2012 at an average of 80Mbps.

I use Boxpn, sometimes disconnects but re-connects if you use their software, fastest speed i have had is the maximum i download which is about 3mb on my 30mb line. Price is cheap and they have answered all but one of my questions but it wasn't a biggie "how do i make your software auto connect to x server".

I do not use it a ton, but I also have VyperVPN, and get the same exact speeds I get when I am just straight connected to my ISP. Literally maxes out my connection. So they definitely seem to have that part covered.

Since i'm living in China, i rely heavily on a VPN. I've been using StrongVPN for the past year and have had mixed results. Unfortunately China have upgraded the great firewall and have blocked many VPN connections. Most of the companies have fixed this but it means using methods that can potentially affect your down/upload speeds.

Not really your paying $10 for access to three servers UK, US and BG wherever BG is and its the same price as other services that have a bigger and better selection also they drop the connection if its not used for ten minutes. Can not find information about there logging :/

If its just going to be for skype have you thought about using a free service? There are a few out there, i believe hotspot shield give you 10gb but that waa a year or more ago so might of changed, then i hear Hamachi is popular too if it was just for skype like you said id be looking at a free option rather than a paid service if its going to be used for other things then sure pay! lol

I use Boxpn (paid service) like i said in this thread it works on mac and windows as for recommending a free one i can not because i only used a free one for a little while which was Hotspot Shield which does have a mac version. No harm in trying it is there?
