Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

oVPN is an established provider of VPN, SSH Tunneling, Socks 5/HTTP proxies and anonymous emailing services. The provider is well-known for delivering a bulletproof level of security through its services. This oVPN review will evaluate the features of oVPN’s VPN service and let you know if the service is worth trying.

Server Locations & Site Access – oVPN has a presence in 14 different countries which includes United States, Iceland, Russia, Switzerland, Hungary, Germany, Netherlands, Canada, Romania, France, Ukraine, Moldova, Turkey and Latvia. While the company doesn’t have any server in UK, the service provides fast access to On-Demand content and local services from the above 14 countries. With your oVPN subscription, you would be able to unlock location restricted services like Pandora, Zattoo, Deezer, Canal+, RTL, Netflix, Russia TV, USA Network, Spacecast, Xfinity, Das Erste, Spotify, Amazon Prime, D8, Eurosport, The Comedy Network, Wilmaa, Rara, ProSieben, Pluzz, Vox, RTVNH, DMAX, Star TV, NHL, Canale 5, Arte, CBC, Sport1, Global TV, TMC, ORF 1, CWTV, TV Lab, Vevo, W9, ZDF, City TV, HBO Go, WDR, Hulu, Bravo, Sat.1, 3SAT, Vudu, MLB, Film1, TVE, D17, AT5, E!, MTV, Much Music, TNT, NBC, CBS, TSN, CTV, FOX and ABC even if you are not physically present in one of the above countries. The service also ensures that you can access your favorite sites (YouTube, Facebook, Skype, Gmail etc.) regardless of the level of censorship imposed by your ISP or administrator. oVPN permits unlimited server switching so accessing local content from multiple countries is definitely possible.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth – The oVPN VPN service doesn’t have any speed or bandwidth limits. The company’s gateways are connected to 100 MBPS to 1 GBPS nodes so you can download files, stream HD videos, communicate with VOIP and play online games at extremely fast speeds. And although the provider allows P2P activities, sharing of copyrighted files is strictly prohibited.

Privacy Settings – oVPN relies on the OpenVPN protocol to deliver its service (with AES-256-CBC bit encryption, SHA-512 bit HMAC authentication, 4096 bit RSA keys). The extremely high level of encryption available ensures that your online activities cannot be monitored or logged by your ISP plus it protects your private data (bank login information, passwords etc.) from hacking and other security attacks.

oVPN does not monitor, collect or store logs of your traffic. However, in case the service is abused by anyone, the company reserves the right to investigate and block the user from using the service.

Supported Operating Systems – oVPN works with OpenVPN compatible systems like Windows, Mac, Android and Linux. The company provides setup instructions and OpenVPN config files for all gateways which should help you to configure the service. The company allows unlimited number of simultaneous connections (from separate devices) but multiple connections to one server are not allowed.

Customer Support – oVPN provides customer support through IRC and its forum. If you face connection or technical issues, you need to open a new thread on the oVPN forum and the support staff will respond to it promptly.

Pricing Options – oVPN offers multiple subscription plans to suit the needs of its customers:

1) 24 hour package – 0.5 Euro
2) 7 days package – 3 Euros
3) 14 days package – 5 Euros
4) 30 days package – 10 Euros
5) 60 days package – 20 Euros
6) 90 days package – 30 Euros
7) 185 days package – 50 Euros
8) 365 days package – 80 Euros
9) 730 days package – 149 Euros

Since the company does not provide free trials or refunds, it is advisable to subscribe to 1 day or 7 day plan first before making a long term commitment. The company accepts payments through crypto currencies which is a big plus. To join the service, you need an invitation code which can be generated by existing members or found on the web.

Final Verdict – On the whole, we were highly pleased with what oVPN had to offer. While the service is not available for iPads or iPhones, it delivers very high level of security for protecting online sessions. As a result, we have no hesitation in recommending the service to internet users who are looking for enhanced online privacy. For more information, please visit: www.ovpn.to.
