Server Locations and Site Access – FortisVPN has VPN servers in 8 different countries – United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Spain, France, Ireland and Netherlands. Even though the company does not have servers in Asian and Latin American countries, the service would help you to bypass all kinds of firewalls and access local content from the above 8 countries. For instance, you would be able to access popular sites like Facebook, Skype, Google Voice, Gmail, YouTube, Twitter and Vonage from China and Middle East even if they are blocked by local ISPs. In addition, you can unlock premium services like Hulu, iTV, ABC, BBC iPlayer, Fox TV, Netflix, CBC, CTV, CBS, NBC, NFL, MLB, MTV, Amazon Instant Videos, Lovefilm, Vudu, HBO On Demand, Pandora, 4OD, Demand 5, Vudu and Xfinity even when you are travelling or are located in a country where these services are not available. Since FortisVPN allows unlimited server switching with every VPN subscription, you can unlock premium local content from several different countries for the price of one VPN subscription.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth – FortisVPN provides access to unrestricted bandwidth and ultra-fast servers through its VPN service. So if you are looking for a fast VPN service for your downloading, VOIP, gaming and online streaming needs then the service is tailor-made for you. On the downside, the company does not permit P2P activities through its network so you cannot use the service to anonymize your bittorrenting sessions.

Privacy Settings – FortisVPN protects your privacy and anonymity on the internet through PPTP, L2TP/IPSec and OpenVPN protocols. The OpenVPN and L2TP are considered quite secure whereas the PPTP protocol provides unmatched compatibility with multiple OS and devices. Together these protocols protect your data and applications (mail, FTP, VOIP, iCQ etc.) from hackers, ISP monitoring, snooping and government surveillance. The company also provides a robust Wi-Fi protection solution which safeguards your financial transactions, social networking accounts and other sensitive data even when you are using unprotected Wi-Fi networks at airports, public parks, shopping malls, hotels, coffee shops and libraries.

FortisVPN does not spy on its users’ online activities nor do they hand over the customer data to third parties or advertisers. However, the company reserves the right to share the customer data with law enforcement agencies if a customer is found to be involved in illegal activities.

Supported Operating Systems – FortisVPN works well with a wide variety of operating systems and devices that are compatible with PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN protocols. Once you subscribe to the service, you would be able to use the service from your Windows (7/8/Vista/XP), Mac, Linux based computers, Android and Windows smartphones, iPads, iPhones as well as Smart TVs and gaming consoles.

The company provides a Windows based VPN client that allows you to use the service without any installation. The client boasts of innovative features like auto-connect at startup, automatic reconnection if disconnected and easy selection of servers and protocols (PPTP, L2TP). For other systems, you need to configure the service manually but the setup is extremely easy thanks to the detailed instructions provided by the company on its official site. The company allows simultaneous connections to 3 different servers from 3 different devices so you can connect from multiple devices as well as unlock premium content from multiple locations at the same time.

Customer Support – The company offers customer support through live chat, Skype and email. The company has also published detailed troubleshooting guides for common VPN problems so you should be able to resolve simple VPN errors on your own.

Pricing Options – FortisVPN’s unlimited plans are available from $5 a month, $12 for 3 months and $40 for a year. The company also offers a free trial account with a validity of 24 hours. The trial account supports all protocols and offers unlimited speeds and bandwidth which means you can simulate a real connection without investing anything. The company offers a 3 day money-back guarantee to those customers who are not able to use the service for technical reasons.

Final Verdict – Overall, FortisVPN offers a fantastic VPN service. While the company does not have servers in all geographical areas, it delivers great speeds and security through its VPN service.
