Thursday, December 4th, 2014

Limy VPN offers high performance privacy solutions for home and business use. While the service is quite new, it boasts of VPN servers in dozens of countries. Below we provide an in-depth Limy VPN Review and explain its features in detail.

Server Locations & Site Access

Limy VPN has a presence in 5 continents and 33 different countries. The provider has deployed servers at important locations like Australia, United States, Canada, Denmark, Germany, United Kingdom, Belgium, France, China, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Austria, South Korea, Netherlands, Ireland, Hong Kong, Philippines, South Africa, Israel, Singapore, Russia, Sweden, Thailand, Indonesia, Chile, Italy, New Zealand, Turkey, Norway, Poland, Iceland, Spain and Japan.

By changing your IP address through the service, you can access On-Demand streaming services such as Zattoo, Canal+, Netflix, NRK, RTE Player, ABC iView, Hulu, CTV, HBO Go, CBC, RTL, Spotify, Pandora, BBC iPlayer, Mio TV, QQLive, Deezer, Youku, TVB, FOX, Amazon Prime, Demand 5, Tudou, Rai TV, TV Tokyo, Voddler, MyTV, Viasat, Eurosport, Rara, CBS, TV Japan, Lovefilm, USA Network, TV Asahi, Vevo, CWTV, Xfinity, NHL, iTV, NBC, Sky Go, MTV, MLB and 4OD that are only available in certain regions due to copyright restrictions.

The service even makes it easy to access services like Gmail, Twitter, Skype, Facebook, Viber and YouTube that are blocked in most schools, offices, Gulf countries and China. As a Limy VPN customer, you are even free to switch servers unlimited number of times but you would be able to access servers from only those countries that are available within your plan.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth

All Limy VPN plans permit unlimited speed and bandwidth. The company’s servers are connected to 1 Gbit nodes so you will get sufficient speeds for VOIP, streaming, gaming and downloading activities. And if you would like to share or download content through torrents, the provider allows it through its OpenVPN plan.

Privacy Settings

Limy VPN provides 128 bit encryption through the PPTP protocol and up to 2048 bit encryption through its OpenVPN plan. The PPTP protocol provides adequate privacy for mobile devices while the OpenVPN protocol is meant for protecting sensitive data while browsing the internet through desktop computers. The service allows you to secure your personal and financial data even while accessing the internet through Wi-Fi hotspots. What’s more, the service shields all kinds of online sessions from surveillance and intrusion.

Limy VPN has mentioned on its site that it does not store any kind of logs since customer anonymity is its top priority. However, most VPN providers do store some kind of connection logs for maintenance and troubleshooting so you should refrain from using the service for illegal activities.

Supported Operating Systems

Limy VPN is available for Windows (XP 32 & 64 bit, Vista 32 & 64 bit, 7), Windows Mobile (5 & 6), Mac OS X (Panther, Leopard, Tiger, Snow-Leopard), iPhones, iPads, Symbian, Linux, Blackberry and Android. The company provides an OpenVPN client for desktops but mobile users need to set up the service manually. Most Limy VPN plans offer shared IPs but you can get a dedicated IP if you need it.

Customer Support

Limy VPN offers 24×7 technical support through email and live chat. In case you are not able to configure or use the service, the support staff is even willing to set things right through Teamviewer.

Pricing Options

Limy VPN’s plans are priced according to the protocol and the number of server locations available within the plan. For instance, PPTP only plans (with access to limited number of servers) are available for $4 and $8 a month while premium OpenVPN plans (with access to many more servers and support for torrenting) cost $6, $12, $15 and $19 a month. The provider offers a separate plan for Blackberry that costs $12 per month. The company does not have quarterly or half-yearly plans but you can get 25% off if you subscribe to the yearly plan and 50% off if you sign up for 2 years. Limy VPN does not provide free trials but you can get your money back within 7 days if you are not able to use the service.

Final Verdict

Overall, we were pleased with what Limy VPN had to offer. The provider offers a fairly good choice of gateways and provides high level of anonymity through the OpenVPN protocol. The only limitation associated with the service is that it does not offer a free trial or an unconditional money back guarantee. If you are looking for a VPN service with a worldwide presence, we urge you to check out Limy VPN. For more information, please visit: www.limyvpn.com.
