Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

NordVPN is one of the newest service providers in the crowded VPN market. Founded in 2012, the service is brought to you by Tefincom co S.A. which is a Panama based company. Even though its VPN service is quite new, the company has over 4 years of experience in providing hosting and server solutions. In this honest NordVPN review, we look at the features of the service and decide whether it is worth the monthly subscription price.

Choice of Servers

NordVPN has grown its number of VPN servers to include locations in Austria, Netherlands, Sweden, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Singapore, Lithuania, France, Poland, Romania, Germany, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, and the Russian federation. Using the service allows you to watch local content from these countries and bypass government and ISP restrictions. So if you are an expat who is visiting a country like China where most of the mainstream sites like Gmail, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Blogger etc. are blocked; you can definitely use NordVPN to bypass restrictions and access the blocked sites.

VPN Speed Rating

The NordVPN service offers blazing fast speeds with unrestricted bandwidth to its customers. The company has excellent infrastructure in place that can support up to 1 GBPS connections. Needless to say, this makes the service a great choice to stream online content, upload and download huge files as well as carry out VOIP activities. While the actual speed would depend on your location and speed provided by your ISP, you should be able to access your favorite content without experiencing any delay.

Privacy Rank

NordVPN is committed to providing the best possible security to its customers. The company does not keep a record of your online sessions neither do they sell or rent your personal information. The service uses 128 bit SSL based encryption that provides very high security and protects your online privacy even at unsecure Wi-Fi spots at malls, cafes, restaurants, bookshops and airports.

Supported Systems

The NordVPN service can be configured on a variety of devices running on Android, Windows, Mac OS, Linux and iOS. It doesn’t matter whether you want to use the service on an iPad, iPhone, Android Smartphone or a laptop; it is easy to configure and use the service within minutes of signing up. The company provides dynamic IP addresses to its customers but you can request them for a static IP address if you need it for some reason.

Customer Support

The company provides customer support through a responsive email based ticket system. The company’s official site has excellent tutorials on how to set up and configure the service on a variety of devices.

Pricing Competitiveness

The unlimited VPN plan starts from 4 EUR a month. It is also possible to subscribe to 3-month, 6-month and 12-month plans at 12 EUR, 24 EUR and 48 EUR respectively. The company offers a generous 3 day free trial that provides an excellent way to test the service before committing your money. The company does not offer refunds so it is advisable to use the free trial to test the service and then subscribe to a long term subscription plan.

    I have been using hma for a while but I switched to nordvpn. The main thing why I did this is that they accept torrents and I can easily download from the pirate bay and you cannot do that in other vpns. What’s more other websites uses some kind of low-end solutions which drops packets and the connection is unstable. These guys use Vyatta which is a very powerful tool for managing networking. I asked the guys about udp ports and they responded me quickly and in a very professional way, highly recommended service.
