EtteGo VPN is brought to you by Veritas Development, which is based in Estonia. Established in 2010, the company offers VPN service and cloud based storage to its customers. In this unbiased EtteGo VPN Review, we will have a look at all the features provided by EtteGo’s VPN service and decide if it is worth the subscription price.

Server Locations and Site Access

EtteGo VPN has servers in 3 different countries – United States, Canada, and Latvia. While several important VPN markets like United Kingdom and regions like Asia and Latin America are missing from the list, the service would help you to bypass firewalls from all regions and corporate environments as well as unlock premium local content from the above 4 countries. Once your subscription process is complete, you would be able to unlock premium sites like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Pandora, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, HBO, MTV, MLB, NFL, Dramafever, CWTV, TSN, CBC, The Comedy Network, E!, Bravo, Deezer, Spotify, Rara, Sport1, Viasat, 3plus, TV3 and LTV1 from any location in the world as well as access sites like Facebook, Gmail, Skype, Vonage, Twitter, YouTube and Google Voice from China, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE and restrictive corporate environments. The company allows unlimited server switching so it is possible to unlock GEO-IP restricted content from all the 4 countries where the company has VPN servers by paying just once.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

EtteGo offers unmetered bandwidth plans to its customers. However, the download speed is capped at 10-15 Mbit/s (upload speed from 5-8 Mbit/s) depending on the plan that you choose. While the throttling of speed is indeed a negative sign, the speed on offer is sufficient for most activities like downloading, streaming, VOIP and online gaming. The company also allows P2P traffic through its network so you can use the service for anonymizing bittorrenting activities.

Privacy Settings

EtteGo VPN delivers 128-bit encrypted service through L2TP/IPSec protocol. The L2TP protocol is considered more secure than the PPTP protocol plus it offers better compatibility with devices than the OpenVPN protocol. The service offers good protection from government and ISP monitoring as well as hacking, sniffing and snooping attempts. Due to this reason, the service is ideal for securing passwords, identity, bank and PayPal accounts as well as other activities that are prone to hacking and theft even while using low security wireless networks that are common at public parks, airports, malls, libraries and coffee shops. The company does not store any information regarding the sites that you visit so your web sessions are totally anonymous.

Supported Operating Systems

The service is compatible with Windows (XP, Vista, 7), Mac, Linux, Android devices, iPhones and iPads. The company offers a custom VPN client for Windows and Mac but other systems require manual configuration. However, setting the service on a device of your choice is extremely easy thanks to the detailed setup instructions available on the company’s website.

Customer Support

The company offers customer support through email and Skype. The support team is knowledgeable and makes it a point to respond to most queries within a reasonable time.

Pricing Options

EtteGo offers 3 different types of unlimited bandwidth VPN plans to its subscribers – Start, Pro and VIP. The Start plan is a monthly subscription plan with 10 Mbit/s download speed and 5 Mbit/s upload speed and it is available from $ 3.99 per month (also available as a weekly plan for $1.11 per week). The Pro plan offers long term plans with 10 Mbit/s download speed and 5 Mbit/s upload speed and is available for $11.99 for 3 months ($21.99 for 6 months and $41.99 for a year). The VIP plan offers higher speeds (15 Mbit/s download speed and 8 Mbit/s upload speed) and also includes free 10GB PrivateCloud storage and is available from $19.99 for 3 months ($29.99 for 6 months and $49.99 for 1 year). The company offers 512 MB bandwidth trial offer and 10 day money back guarantee so you can test the service totally risk free. It is even possible to get 3 months free VPN service by installing Cellagent security app on your Android device.

Final Verdict

Overall, EtteGo provides an average VPN service for a number of reasons. While the service comes with speed limits and limited choice of server locations, it delivers good security with unlimited bandwidth. So if you are looking for a dependable VPN service provider, check the offers from EtteGo VPN today. For more information, please visit: www.ettego.com.
