VPNTraffic was established in 2010 and is based in the USA. Although they are almost a decade old, they have not enjoyed the recognition that many of the other bigger names in the online security industry have, in spite of being an excellent option. Luckily for users though, this has meant that they have kept their pricing low while keeping their service levels up. For a very reasonable price, you can bypass filter set by your ISP, proxy servers, and access content that is restricted in your location.
VPNTraffic doesn’t block any protocols, which means you can use any application you want, including BitTorrent, Netflix, Spotify, Usenet, BBC iPlayer, Hulu, gaming sites, and work applications.
They have a large network of servers (the number is unconfirmed) located in more than 70 countries, allowing you to unblock just about any site with ease. You can also use this VPN in countries with censorship, such as Dubai, China, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, ensuring that you are kept safe and anonymous, and that the government can’t spy on your activities.
You can switch between different servers as many times as you want and there are no limitations on bandwidth or speed. In fact, this VPN can support a 100Mbps connection. When it comes to operating systems, you can use this VPN on Windows, iOS, MacOS, Android, and Symbian completely anonymously.
They have a 3 day trial for a low price, but unfortunately they do not have a free trial. Once you have used the trial, you can select from a few different subscription options to suit your needs. You can also decide whether you want to pay monthly, every 3 months, or annually. Every subscription option comes with unlimited server switches, robust encryption, and high speed servers.
The website is very basic and simple, making it great for beginners. They have no restrictions on P2P and torrent usage with this VPN, so it makes it worthwhile if you are looking for a decently priced all-round VPN.
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.
VPNTraffic offers various setup guides that have tutorials and screenshots for all of the different devices and operating systems that it supports. This means that even beginners can set it up with relative ease. They have a fairly limited support page – there is a list that lets you troubleshoot common issues and errors, with advice and solutions. There is no live chat option, but there is email support that promises to reply to all messages within 12 hours.
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.
