VPNVIP Inc. is a Los Angeles based VPN service provider which has been offering privacy services for almost 5 years. The service is famous for offering extremely cheap VPN plans plus it also includes features that are not available from other VPN service providers. With this background, let us check out the pros and cons of the service and decide if it is a worthy investment in this comprehensive VPNVIP review.

Server Locations & Site Access – VPNVIP has VPN gateways across Americas, Europe and Asia. The company has deployed servers in seven countries including Canada, United Kingdom, United States, France, Japan, Germany and Hong Kong. The provider has also optimized its network for China and Middle East so you would be able to bypass censorship and unlock sites like Twitter, Gmail, Facebook, YouTube and Skype that are blocked over there.

For those who love to watch streaming movies and TV shows online, the service provides unrestricted access to Netflix, RTL, BBC iPlayer, Canal+, FOX, Global TV, Hulu, CBS, Spacecast, USA Network, CBC, Star TV, TV Tokyo, Vevo, Eurosport, ABC, Much Music, Amazon Prime, Lovefilm, TV Japan, Bravo, City TV, CWTV, Sky Go, Xfinity, E!, MyTV, CTV, MTV, Vudu, The Comedy Network, TNT, MLB, Demand 5, NHL, TVB, NBC, TSN, iTV, 4OD, TV Asahi, HBO Go and Pandora all parts of the world. And since there are no restrictions on switching servers, you can get access to IP restricted content from multiple geographical areas.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth – VPNVIP offers only metered plans to its users. However, the company’s high quality network ensures that customers are able to enjoy streaming and downloading without running into speed or throttling bottlenecks. The company offers near 24×7 availability and 99% uptime so it is a good choice for people who are always online. In addition, the provider has also deployed an excellent gaming accelerator which makes the service ideal for gamers who want to play multiplayer role playing games online.

Privacy Settings – VPNVIP creates a 128-bit encrypted tunnel between one of its servers and your device (Smartphone, tablet or computer). The service relies on PPTP and L2TP/IPSec protocols so it is not really as secure as the privacy services which use the OpenVPN protocol. The service provides total online freedom and protects your online sessions from surveillance and hacking by changing your IP address and encrypting your traffic. The service is tailor made for Smartphone users since it protects banking and social networking sessions at airports, coffee shops and shopping malls.

VPNVIP does not rent, sell or trade customer information to outside parties. However, customers should refrain from using the service for illegal activities since it is easy for law enforcement agencies to get customer details by simply initiating a judicial process.

Supported Operating Systems – VPNVIP is compatible with Mac OS X (10.5+), Windows (XP, 7, 8), iOS (6+) and Android. The service is optimized for iPhone/iPad/iTouch devices and the company even offers its own VPN Express client for iOS users. However, users of other systems need to set up the service manually by referring to the configuration instructions provided by the company. The service includes a Virtual Firewall that protects you from all types of security threats. What’s more, the company allows unlimited number of simultaneous connections so you can protect all your devices with just a single VPNVIP account.

Customer Support – VPNVIP offers customer support only through emails. Whenever you run into connection or speed issues, just send an email to the support team and they will respond to your query in a timely manner.

Pricing Options – VPNVIP VPN plans cost $0.2/GB or $0.99/month (for 2 GB of traffic). Customers who need more bandwidth can subscribe to 6 GB monthly plans for $2.99 or 10 GB 60 day plan for $4.99. In addition, term plans cost $9.99 per quarter (30 GB traffic), $21.99 for 4 months (80 GB bandwidth), $29.99 for 6 months (120 GB traffic) and $59.99 for 360 days (300 GB bandwidth). The company offers 100 MB free trials that can be extended up to 1 GB by simply referring the service to other people. The company also runs online contests and offers free bandwidth to its users from time to time.

Final Verdict – VPNVIP provides a feature packed privacy service that is definitely worth a look. While the company does not offer unlimited bandwidth plans, the service provides affordable security and privacy on the web. We highly recommend VPNVIP to our readers so go ahead and test drive the service today. For more information, please visit: www.vpnvip.com.
