In the MicroVPN Review below, we evaluate the features offered by the company and help you to decide whether you should subscribe to the service.

Server Locations

MicroVPN has servers in United States and United Kingdom. By using MicroVPN’s VPN service, you would be able to unlock location restricted online services like BBC iPlayer, ABC, CBS, Vudu, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Lovefilm, iTV Player, Netflix and Pandora that are not available outside US or UK. Further, using the service would also allow you to bypass firewalls imposed by governments, ISPs, organizations and universities. So you can easily unblock Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, YouTube etc. which are blocked in many countries and organizations.

Speed Rate

MicroVPN delivers unmetered bandwidth and unlimited speed to its customers. Since the company does not throttle speed, it is an ideal choice for watching streaming events and movies, playing online games, downloading huge files, FTP and VOIP activities. The company even permits P2P traffic within its network so you can share and download as much content as you wish without running into bandwidth or speed issues.

The high level of encryption used by the company makes it a great choice to protect personal data and passwords from hackers and password sniffers while using public Wi-Fi networks. Depending on your plan, you can also get a dual layer of security (VPN and proxy) which protects your anonymity even when the VPN gets disconnected for some reason.
