Based in Hong Kong, IronSocket provides fast speeds across its global network of 38 countries. They offer stable connections and unlimited bandwidth.
With a number of protocol options, including OpenVPN, PPTP, and L2TP/IPSec, you can decide the level of security you need for each connection.
It works with Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, smart TV, Playstation, Xbox, Wii, and routers.
There are no custom apps for Ironsocket, which makes things just a bit difficult. However, the website has detailed instructions for each type of installation, so it doesn’t take too long.
P2P is available on certain servers so you can download as many torrents as you want. They also have an active customer support team that will quickly resolve your issues, but there is no live chat.
Speed determines how fast content uploads, so if you're torrenting or streaming, you want the speed to be somewhat identical to your regular internet speed. Since a VPN encrypts your data, it usually takes a bit longer to send your data back and forth, which can slow down your connection. However, if your ISP deliberately slows down your connection (also known as throttling) a VPN might increase your internet speed. Testing a VPN is somewhat pointless because new servers pop up and affect speed. Your speed can also differ according to your location, so your speed test might not match ours. Having said that, we tested the speed in numerous locations to provide you with the average.
There are no apps so you will need to do a manual installation. Ironsocket runs on a number of platforms. You can install it on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, gaming consoles, smart TVs, and routers. There are comprehensive guides for each platform, which makes installation easy, but it will be challenging for those who are not tech-savvy.
Installing the VPN will take about 5 minutes. Once installed, it can be easily used. The speeds are good and the connections are pretty stable.
There are no bandwidth restrictions, which means you can stream or torrent as much as you want. They don’t have a live chat feature but they are active in replying to tickets.
We personally test the customer support team of every VPN we review. This means asking technical question through the live chat feature (where applicable) and measuring the response time for email questions. Whether you need to connect to a specific server, change your security protocol, or configure a VPN on your router, finding a VPN with quality customer support should be important to you.
