Thursday, July 4th, 2013


TsunamiVPN is a Philippines based VPN service provider which provides secure and affordable VPN services. The service was launched in the year 2011 with an aim to deliver a very high quality VPN service to customers. In the detailed TsunamiVPN Review below, we will check the features offered by the service and judge if it is worth the subscription money.

Server Locations and Site Access

TsunamiVPN has servers in United States and Germany. The company has 25 servers in US that are spread across multiple locations including San Jose, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Phoenix. While the company does not have servers in important VPN markets like Canada and United Kingdom, the service is ideal for unlocking GEO-IP restricted services available only within US and Germany. The service can even work as an anonymity solution for those who want to bypass censorship imposed by schools, organizations, libraries and governments (especially in China, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Brazil). As soon as you connect to TsunamiVPN’s servers you would be able to unlock sites like Facebook, Hulu, ABC Player, MTV, HBO On Demand, Fox, Netflix, NFL, MLB, Eurosport, Gmail, CWTV, CBS, Twitter, Xfinity, Vudu, YouTube and Skype from any country in the world. The company even allows sever switching so you can unlock premium local services from both US and Germany with just one VPN subscription.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

TsunamiVPN delivers unmetered bandwidth and unlimited speed to its customers. Customers looking for a fast VPN service that allows them to download huge files, make unlimited VOIP calls, stream HD content and play online games won’t be disappointed with TsunamiVPN’s speed and bandwidth. The company even allows P2P activities through its 4 German servers which should make bittorrenting lovers happy.

Privacy Settings

TsunamiVPN offers great security through OpenVPN protocol. The service does not support low encryption protocols like PPTP and L2TP which means it is ideal for protecting personal and financial data (credit card numbers, passwords, IP address and social accounts) so that you don’t fall prey to fraud or identity theft. What’s more, the service not only secures browsing sessions; it also protects other online activities like emailing, instant messaging, FTP and VOIP. The company offers a superior Wi-Fi protection to protect your wireless sessions against hackers and criminals who often prey on innocent victims using free Wi-Fi hotspots available at airports, shopping malls, public parks, libraries and coffee shops.

TsunamiVPN does not monitor internet activities of its users. The company respects your privacy and does not sell user information to third parties or advertisers.

Supported Operating Systems

TsunamiVPN is compatible with Windows (XP, Vista, 7), Mac OS X and Linux operating systems. Since the service does not support PPTP or L2TP protocols, it cannot be used from iPads, iPhones and other mobile and computing devices. The company offers a ready to use installer for Windows which takes only few minutes to download and install. Regarding other systems, anyone with bare minimum technical knowledge should be able to setup the service without requiring any help. The company also offers setup tutorials through its website so you can refer to them in case you are not able to configure the service.

Customer Support

The company offers customer support through email, ticketing system and SMS. Even though the company has provided a support phone number on its website, it can be used only for SMS support (cannot be used for telephonic support). Moreover, the company’s official site seems to be lacking detailed troubleshooting guides which could have helped people to resolve technical problems on their own.

Pricing Options

TsunamiVPN’s unlimited plans are really affordable – the monthly plan costs $5 while the quarterly plan is available for just $10. The company offers a 30 day trial account that allows you to test the service from 5 trial servers. The trial accounts come with 200 MB daily data limit, hourly disconnections, limited support and maximum permissible bandwidth of 10 GB per month. The company would even refund your money within 5 days if you are not happy with the service for some reason.

Final Verdict

Overall, TsunamiVPN provides a decent VPN service. While the company has limited choice of server locations and its service does not work from all devices, it offers great speeds and anonymity.
