EuropeVPN Review – Get A European IP Address From Anywhere

Friday, July 11th, 2014

EuropeVPN is a privacy service that is targeted towards European expats and tourists. Launched in 2013, the service offers total security and anonymity on the internet. In this detailed EuropeVPN Review, we will check the pros and cons of the service and decide if it is worth using.

Server Locations and Site Access

EuropeVPN offers European (Dutch) IPs to its customers. The service can be used to unlock Netherlands based banking, ecommerce and streaming services that require a Dutch IP address (for instance, Spotify, Rara, Deezer, AT5, Film1, Sport1, TV Lab and RTVNH) from any place in the world plus it can also assist you to bypass censorship prevalent in countries like China, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Brazil. When used to circumvent censorship, the tool allows you to access popular services such as Twitter, Gmail, Facebook, Skype, Viber YouTube, Blogger and Gtalk that are blocked by many ISPs, universities and organizations.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

EuropeVPN offers only metered bandwidth plans to its customers. However, the bandwidth is capped at 300 GB per month which should be sufficient for bandwidth hungry activities such as streaming of High Definition videos, downloading of GB sized files, VOIP and multiplayer online gaming. And even though the bandwidth is capped, there is no throttling of speed so you won’t experience any delays or buffering while using the service. The company’s infrastructure includes servers connected to 1 GBPS nodes and they are constantly monitored to deliver 99.9% uptime.

Privacy Settings

EuropeVPN offers up to 160 bit encryption (with 1024 bit keys) through its service. The high level of encryption ensures that your online activities and vital data (passwords, social accounts, financial transactions) remain protected even if you connect to the internet through a totally unsecure public W-Fi hotspot (installed at airports, shopping malls, coffee shops and hotels). Additionally, the service helps you to secure many types of online activities (including browsing, email, ICQ, FTP and VOIP) from security threats and surveillance attempts.

The company does not log data transfers or traffic activities; it just records bandwidth consumption. The company respects the privacy of subscribers so it doesn’t hand over their data to third parties unless there is a legal requirement.

Supported Operating Systems

EuropeVPN works well with (XP, Vista, 7, 8), Linux, Mac OSX, iPhones, iPads, Android (2.2-4.3+) and Blackberry. The provider offers a custom app for Android but other systems require manual configuration. However, the setup process is not at all difficult and can be managed even by tech novices.

Customer Support

EuropeVPN offers 24X7 support through a ticket based support system.

Pricing Options

EuropeVPN plans are available from 6.49 Euros for a month (17.97 Euros for 3 months, 29.94 Euros for 6 months, 55.08 for 1 year and 95.76 for 2 years). The subscription packs include support for all protocols and come with 300 GB monthly bandwidth limit. Customers who want to test the service can subscribe to a 3 day test plan that comes with 25 GB bandwidth. The company even offers money back guarantee so you can try the service without worrying about your investment.

Final Verdict

Overall, EuropeVPN delivers a satisfying service. While the company does not have servers outside Europe, it offers high level of security to customers. We recommend the service to customers who need a European IP address or those who are not happy with their current privacy solution. For more information, please visit: www.europevpn.com.
