Since the company allows access to all the servers with a single VPN plan, you can unlock local content from all the 32 countries without paying extra money.
EarthVPN users get access to very high speeds (up to 1 GBPS) and unlimited bandwidth. The wide distribution of server locations ensures best possible speeds and connectivity with minimal latency. The company also guarantees 99.99% uptime so you are never left stranded due to server downtime. The service offers P2P support through Canada, Panama, Luxembourg, Romania and Netherlands servers. Due to such amazing features, the service is ideal for downloading, P2P activities, VOIP, streaming, gaming and plain browsing.

The advanced security features would help you to protect your financial details, social data and identity while carrying out your usual activities such as emailing, FTP, messaging, browsing and streaming. The service even allows you to hide your IP address and other valuable data from criminals while using low security Wi-Fi hotspots.
EarthVPN does not log user activities nor do they sell user details to third parties. Since the Cyprus jurisdiction has no logging or data retention policy, the company is not bound to hand over user data to copyright holders or law enforcement agencies.
Supported Operating Systems

The service offers a one-click VPN solution for Windows desktops and laptops that doesn’t require any installation. The company even allows you to use the service from 3 devices simultaneously provided they are using the same router (or modem). The company has blocked port 25 to prevent email spamming but they do offer custom SMTP address for those looking for email solutions.
Customer Support Rating
The company offers 24/7/365 support through email and ticketing system. In case you are facing consistent connectivity issues, the support team can also help you via Teamviewer. The company’s official site has an impressive collection of VPN articles so make sure to go through them before installing or troubleshooting the service.
EarthVPN’s service is really affordable. The company offers unlimited monthly plans for $3.99 while the annual plans are available for $39.99. Although the company doesn’t offer a free trial, they do have 7 day unconditional money back guarantee which should be enough for testing the service.
