The service also enables you to bypass restrictions and firewalls put in place by organizations and countries like China, Brazil, Thailand and Middle Eastern nations. So if you are looking for a dependable VPN service to unlock Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, YouTube and Skype from any country in the world, Octane VPN would be a great choice. The company also has a very liberal server switching policy so you can unlock local content from all the 29 countries listed above with just one subscription plan.

Speed and Bandwidth

Octane VPN delivers unlimited speeds and data transfers to its VPN customers. While the exact speed would depend on your location and the speed provided by your ISP, you can get a better speed by choosing a server that is located nearest to your current location. The company does not throttle speed so you can watch unlimited streaming movies and TV shows, download huge files, make unlimited VOIP calls and transfer unlimited data with FTP without worrying about breaching your monthly limits.

Privacy Settings

Octane VPN provides excellent encryption (up to 256 bit) to protect browsing, FTP, emailing, messaging and VOIP sessions. The service is powerful enough to protect loosely secured Wi-Fi sessions at malls, airports, coffee shops and hotels. Once you start using the service, no one can sniff your data or steal your money or identity.

The company takes the privacy of its VPN customers very seriously. While the company records details like IP address, login time and bandwidth usage, it does not hand it over to third parties like advertisers.

Supported Systems

Octane VPN is compatible with computers, tablets and Smartphones running on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. The company offers proprietary VPN software for Windows based computers. For other devices like iPads and iPhones, you need to configure the service manually. The installation and configuration is very easy and even people with no expertise in VPN technology should be able to configure the service with ease.

Customer Support

The company offers support through email. For billing related queries, you can also contact them through phone or fax. While the absence of live chat support is indeed a shortcoming, the support staff does a good job of responding to most queries within few hours.

Pricing Options

Octane VPN offers unlimited VPN plans starting from $9.99 for 1 month ($26.99 for 3 months, $44.99 for 6 months and $79.99 for 12 months). The company also offer short term plans for $1.99 for a day and $3.99 for 3 days. It is also possible to get customized VPN plans for $1 per day. The company does not offer a trial but you can request for a refund within 7 days provided that your bandwidth usage does not exceed 10 GB.

Final Verdict

Octane VPN delivers an excellent VPN service at very competitive rates. The service offers great speed, security and a wide range of server locations that should make its VPN customers happy.
