Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Moca VPN is a US based privacy solution provider. The company was launched in 2009 and it acquired the popular Freedur VPN service in the year 2011. In this exhaustive and thorough Moca VPN Review, we will look at the features provided by the service and decide if it is worth the subscription price. [Moca VPN Has Been Shut Down on Dec. 2013]

Server Locations and Site Access

Moca VPN has servers in United States and United Kingdom. Although the choice of server locations is undoubtedly less, the service would allow you to access popular sites like YouTube, Facebook, Skype, Twitter and Gmail that are blocked by many organizations and countries (Kuwait, China, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Brazil). In addition, the service is a perfect solution for expats, travelers and people from outside US and UK who wish to unlock services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, BBC iPlayer, iTV Player, Demand 5, 4OD, CBS, NBC, MLB, NFL, Dramafever, CWTV, Lovefilm, Xfinity, Vudu, HBO Go and Fox TV from outside these two countries. Moca VPN allows unlimited server switching between its servers so it is possible to unlock premium services from both US and UK with just one VPN subscription.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

Moca VPN does not limit the speed or bandwidth that is available to the users. The service is well suited for speed and bandwidth demanding activities like VOIP, downloading and streaming of HD TV shows and movies. The service even helps you to reduce ping time so you would be able to play online multiplayer games faster.

Privacy Settings

Moca VPN delivers up to 256 bit encryption through OpenVPN and L2TP/IPSec protocols. The high level of encryption helps in shielding online activities from ISPs and administrators plus it also secures your bank/PayPal details, passwords and social accounts when you are using low security wireless networks at coffee shops, airports, parks, malls and hotels. The company does not spy on users’ online sessions plus it does not share or sell customer data. However, the company reserves the right to monitor, review and disclose customer information if required by law.

Supported Operating Systems

Moca VPN works with common operating systems and devices like Windows (7, XP, Vista), Linux, Mac based computers; iPads, iPhones, Android Tablets/Smartphones as well as Blackberry devices. The company offers a dialer for Windows and Mac and even offers a setup file for iPhones. The dialer makes it easy to monitor traffic and connection time and allows changing servers with the click of a button. The setup for other systems requires manual effort but it has been made easy thanks to the detailed instructions provided by the company on its official site.

Customer Support

The company offers customer support through an email based support system. While the lack of live chat support is indeed a disappointment, the company has provided basic troubleshooting information in its knowledgebase section so you would be able to fix common VPN problems on your own.

Pricing Options

Moca VPN’s unlimited plans start from $14.95/month ($29.95/quarter, $49.95/6 months and $69.95/year). Although the monthly plans are expensive, you can save more than $100 if you are willing to subscribe to an annual plan. The company does not offer refunds but you may request for a free trial in order to test the service before making your purchase.

Final Verdict

At first glance, Moca VPN doesn’t look very appealing. However, the company offers an easy to use custom VPN solution and provides better security than many other VPN providers. So although the service is expensive on a monthly subscription basis, we recommend that you check them out and ask for your free trial. For more information, please visit: www.moca.io.
