Road Warrior VPN Review – Basic VPN Service

Monday, April 21st, 2014

Road Warrior VPN is a privacy solution from a US based company. The service has been around for more than 5 years and it aims to deliver unfiltered internet access to its customers. In this detailed Road Warrior VPN Review, you will learn more about the service and discover how it offers security and privacy on the internet.

Server Locations and Site Access

As of now, Road Warrior VPN has got servers at just 3 locations – United States (East Cost, West Coast), United Kingdom and Netherlands. The choice of server locations is undoubtedly on a lower side when compared with other VPN companies. However, the service makes it easy to unblock GEO-IP blocked content from these 3 countries as well as bypass the content censorship prevalent in most organizations and many countries (China, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Brazil, Thailand just to name a few). With your subscription, you would be able to access GEO-IP restricted and blocked websites like Netflix, Facebook, Twitter, BBC iPlayer, FOX, Pandora, Gmail, YouTube, Skype, Demand 5, Hulu, Google Talk, Amazon Prime, Eurosport, iTV, ABC, USA Network, HBO Go, 4OD, CBS, Lovefilm, STV, Rara, MLB, NHL, Deezer, Xfinity, TNT, UK TV, Sky Go, CWTV, Spotify, Vudu, NBC, MTV and Vevo from any country in the world. The company even permits unlimited server switching so you can unlock local content from 3 different countries by paying just once.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

Road Warrior VPN does not throttle speed or restrict bandwidth. The company’s servers are connected to 1 Gigabit nodes so it is able to deliver superior speeds at all times. In addition, the company has multiple servers at each location so there is hardly any downtime. Due to speed and bandwidth advantage, the service is well-suited for demanding activities like streaming, VOIP, downloading and gaming.

Privacy Settings

Road Warrior VPN relies on OpenVPN to deliver its service which is one of the most secure VPN protocols available today. The service offers privacy and security even if you are connected to an unsecured Wi-Fi hotspot at a mall, airport, public park or coffee shop and protects your valuable data (credit card numbers, passwords, social accounts) from all types of hacking and security threats. And unlike proxies, Road Warrior VPN can protect multiple applications (FTP, VOIP, email clients, browsers etc.) with just one configuration.

Road Warrior VPN does not spy on the online activities of its users. However, should a customer use the service for any illegal activity, the company reserves the right to investigate and even reveal the customer details to law enforcement agencies.

Supported Operating Systems

Road Warrior VPN is compatible with Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and SNOM VoIP Phone. While the lack of support for iOS based devices (iPads, iPhones, iTouch) is indeed disappointing, the service can be used from gaming consoles and Smart TVs through the pre-configured routers that are available from the company. The company does not provide its own VPN client so you must configure the service by referring to the step-by-step instructions available on the company’s portal.

Customer Support

Road Warrior VPN provides customer support through live chat, ticket and phone. While the live chat and telephone support is not available round the clock, you can contact the support team through the ticketing system if you need assistance at odd hours.

Pricing Options

Road Warrior VPN Personal plans are available from $19.95 per month ($115.99 for 6 months and $199.95 per year). The company also offers dedicated IP VPN plans from $24.95 per month and VOIP accounts with 256 KBPS of delivered bandwidth for $40 per month. The company has special VPN packages for small to medium sized businesses. Unfortunately, the company does not offer free trials but you can ask for a refund within 24 hours if you are not happy with the service.

Final Verdict

Overall, Road Warrior VPN delivers on most parameters. However, the service is considerably expensive when compared with other VPN solutions. As such, we recommend budget conscious customers to look elsewhere for their privacy needs. Customers willing to give the service a try must sign up for the monthly plan first to test if it is the right privacy solution for them. For more information, please visit: www.roadwarriorvpn.com.

    Best thing about Express VPN would definitely be their customer service. Turn around rate is really fast. I’m living in China, and I think the server may have gone down once or twice, tops. Love the service!
