Buzz VPN is brought to you by XTPN Limited which is a United Kingdom based company. The team behind the service has decades of experience in computer security and it has been offering security solutions to corporate clients since late 90s. In the comprehensive Buzz VPN review below, we check out what the service has to offer and judge whether or not it is worth subscribing.

Server Locations and Site Access

Buzz VPN has VPN servers in 10 countries – United States, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Netherlands, Australia, Germany, Poland, Ireland and Spain. While the company does not have servers in important VPN markets like Canada, the service does make it easy to get an American and European IP address. People who are looking for a way to access sites like Zattoo, Hulu, Spotify, Netflix, ABC, HBO On Demand, NBC, CBS, NFL, iTV, RTE, BBC iPlayer, Amazon Prime, Pandora, Demand 5, Lovefilm, Xfinity, 4OD and Rara from abroad will certainly appreciate the range of IP addresses provided by Buzz VPN. In addition, the service will help those who wish to unblock popular sites like Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Skype and Blogger from behind their company’s (or school’s) firewalls or from countries like Saud Arabia, China, Brazil, Qatar and UAE. Due to the very generous server switching policy implemented by the company, it becomes easy to switch servers at will and unlock local content from all the 10 countries where the company has its servers.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

With a Buzz VPN connection, you don’t have to face any speed or bandwidth limits. While the exact speed would depend on your location and the location of the VPN server, you can expect to get very high speeds that support streaming HD TV shows/movies, VOIP, online gaming and downloading. The company even permits peer to peer traffic through its network but sharing of copyrighted content is not allowed.

Privacy Settings

Buzz VPN offers top grade security through OpenVPN, PPTP and L2TP protocols. The company’s OpenVPN solution provides AES 256 bit encryption which cannot be cracked under any circumstances. Since OpenVPN is not compatible with mobile devices, the company also offers PPTP and L2TP protocols which provide maximum compatibility with a lower level of encryption. Using the service is a great way to protect your sensitive personal data such as passwords, bank and credit card information and social accounts as well as secure online activities like FTP, messaging, emailing, browsing and VOIP. In case you regularly use Wi-Fi hotspots at airports, public parks, malls, coffee shops and book shops; Buzz VPN also offers hotspot protection to protect your wireless sessions from hackers and snoopers.

Buzz VPN does not store logs or spy on users’ online sessions. They do collect diagnostic information to maintain their server network but this information is totally anonymous. The company does not sell or rent user data to other companies or advertisers.

Supported Operating Systems

Buzz VPN service is compatible with Windows (8/7/Vista/XP), Linux (Ubuntu and other implementations), iOS (for iPad, iPhone), Android, Mac OS, Windows Mobile and DDWRT systems (for Smart TVs, XBox 360, PS 3). The setup is simple since the company provides a proprietary client for Windows and Mac OS X plus it offers detailed configuration guides for most systems. It is also possible to configure the service on multiple devices but you can run the service on only one device at a time.

Customer Support

The company offers 24 X 7 support through a ticket system. The company’s goal is to respond to most queries within 4 hours but this may vary depending on your exact problem. The company also offers detailed configuration and troubleshooting guides through its user portal to help those who love to solve technical problems on their own.

Pricing Options

Buzz VPN’s unlimited plans are available for $9.99 per month. It is even possible to save money while subscribing by using Buzz VPN coupons. While the company does not offer a free trial, it does offer a 7 day money back guarantee.

Final Verdict

Overall, Buzz VPN delivers an above average VPN experience. While the company still does not have servers in many countries, it offers great speeds and high security to its customers. For those who are looking for a reliable and affordable VPN service, Buzz VPN would definitely be a good choice. For more information, please visit: www.buzzvpn.com.
