Server Locations

Pirate Ray has servers in 4 different countries – USA, United Kingdom, Switzerland and Germany. While the company promotes itself as a bittorrenting security provider, it can also be used to change IP address and unlock GEOP restricted content from above 4 countries. So if you want to unlock Zattoo, Spotify, Rara, 4OD, Demand 5, Amazon Prime, HBO On Demand, Netflix, ABC, Fox, CBS, Hulu, iTV and Pandora from any location in the world, Pirate Ray can help you with that. The service can also be used to bypass firewalls imposed by ISPs and network administrators and unlock Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, YouTube ad Blogger from just about anywhere.

Speed and Bandwidth

Pirate Ray provides very high speeds for downloading and sharing content. The company does not throttle speed in any way nor does it restrict bandwidth so it is a great solution for people looking to download huge files through peer to peer networks. The service also helps you to access torrenting sites even if they are blocked in your country. The service offers best speed and latency for downloading, streaming, torrenting and VOIP activities.

Privacy Settings

Pirate Ray does not store or share user activity logs. The company also deletes its server cache after regular intervals so your personal details are not stored anywhere and can never be shared. The company protects your online sessions by creating an impregnable SSH tunnel while connecting to its servers. The service provides optimum security for browsing, bittorrenting, FTP, VOIP and emailing and it can also be used to protect private and financial data at low security public Wi-Fi spots.

Supported Systems

Pirate Ray offers a proprietary solution for Windows, Mac and Linux based computers. The company’s software is compatible with most P2P clients including uTorrent and Vuze. The service can also act as a SOCKS 5 proxy that would help you to secure your browsing, streaming, VOIP and emailing sessions. Unfortunately the service is not compatible with iPads, iPhones and Android devices as of now but the company is planning to introduce a privacy solution for mobile devices in the near future.

Customer Support

Pirate Ray’s support team offers excellent support through email based support system. The company has published detailed instructions and videos on how to configure and use the service from different platforms on its official site so make sure to use them.

Pricing Plans

Pirate Ray offers a 3 day free trial that would allow you to test different aspects of the service. If you are happy with the speed and security, you can subscribe to Pirate Ray’s unlimited plans for just $4.99 per month. The unlimited plans offered by the company are far cheaper than plans offered by other bittorrenting anonymizing services.

Final Verdict

Overall, Pirate Ray is a solid anonymizing service. If you frequently share or download content through P2P networks and torrents, it makes sense to use a privacy solution to protect your identity and IP address from ISPs and copyright holders. Pirate Ray offers excellent speeds and privacy that would allow you to secure your browsing and downloading sessions from just about anywhere.
