Speedify is one of the most unique VPN services you’ll come across. The company’s mission is to do things a little differently while offering an innovative VPN that makes speed a priority.
Speedify was developed originally in 2014 in the United States and has quickly amassed a large user base while also continually expanding its server options and locations.
The Speedify approach uses something they’ve dubbed “Channel Bonding,” which lets you use multiple connections at the same time. When connected, you can combine your Wi-Fi, mobile data, and Bluetooth connections to increase your speed. You can also prioritize which connections get the majority of the speed boost. Aside from ensuring higher speeds, Channel Bonding also keeps you connected even if one of your individual connections drops out.
Speedify offers the level of security you’ve come to expect from modern VPNs, but with a few twists. First of all, while you can use 256-bit AES encryption, there’s also the option to use the even more secure ChaCha encryption on compatible devices. As for protocols, Speedify’s Channel Bonding actually functions as the protocol. For your privacy, the company makes it clear that they don’t keep any logs.
Speedify does have some trouble unblocking content on some platforms, such as Netflix. Their pricing is a bit inconsistent and confusing as well.
Overall, Speedify is an interesting service that gives you a full month to try before you buy. We do recommend you try it because the increased speed and high level of security is a very alluring combination.
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.
Speedify has put a lot of time into making their app very easy to use, even for VPN virgins. The server menu is very intuitive, giving you a dropdown list of cities and speeds for each country.
Changing your settings is simple. You can choose which connections you want to include, and also set priorities.
Customer support does not include a live chat option, but the website does have an extensive knowledge base. If you are still stuck, you can email their support team and get a response back in just a few hours, which should be good enough for most users.
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.
