VPNSeek Review – Flexible VPN Plans For One And All

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

VPNSeek (also known as Perfect VPN) is yet another VPN provider in the crowded VPN market. Established in 2009, the VPN service is brought to you by an Australia based company. In the exhaustive VPNSeek Review below, we look at all the features offered by the service and decide whether it is worth our money.

Server Locations and Site Access

VPNSeek has VPN servers in 16 countries – USA (15 cities), UK (2 cities), Netherlands, Switzerland, New Zealand, Australia, Czech Republic, Ireland, France, Germany, Malaysia, Austria, Russia, Sweden, Canada and Ukraine. The server network is well distributed and allows you to watch local content from any one country of your choice from almost anywhere. For instance, you can watch ABC, CTV, Zattoo, HBO On Demand, Amazon Prime, CBS, Hulu, NFL, Netflix, Fox, BBC iPlayer, Rara, Pandora, Spotify, NBC, iTV and NFL from your laptop or mobile device even if these sites are blocked in the country of your visit. VPNSeek’s VPN plan is also useful to bypass local censorship and unlock sites like Gmail, Facebook, Skype, Twitter and YouTube from any country (even from China, Saudi Arabia, Dubai and UAE).

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

VPNSeek offers both metered and unmetered bandwidth plans to its customers. However, there is no throttling or speed limit so you can stream movies, download files, make VOIP calls and play online games at blazing fast speeds.

Privacy Settings

VPNSeek offers top notch security through OpenVPN, SSTP, PPTP and L2TP protocols. The OpenVPN and SSTP protocols offer a very high level of security but they are not compatible with mobile devices. On the other hand, PPTP and L2TP protocols offer best compatibility but they are considered less secure. However, the security offered by VPNSeek is adequate for common online activities like browsing, FTP, messaging, emailing and VOIP. The service even secures your Wi-Fi sessions so you don’t have to worry about your passwords, bank account details and social accounts getting hacked while using low security wireless networks (common at airports, public parks, malls and hotels).

VPNSeek records minimal connection details to keep their server network up and running. The company does not record users’ browsing details nor do they sell customer data to advertisers and third parties.

Supported Operating Systems

VPNSeek works great with common operating systems like Windows (7, XP, Vista), Mac OS, Linux, iOS (iPhone and iPad OS) and Android (Smartphones and tablets). Setting up the service is quite easy and anyone with bare minimum computer knowledge should be able to set up the service on his own. The company does not provide access to port 25 so sending bulk mails through its server network is not possible.

Customer Support

The company offers support through email, live chat and a ticket system. Since the live chat support is available only during business hours, creating a support ticket is a much better option if you need urgent assistance. You can also refer to the company’s official site in case you need technical help since the company has published detailed troubleshooting instructions for common VPN problems.

Pricing Options

VPNSeek offers single-country, shared and dedicated IP VPN plans to its customers. A 20 GB shared IP US VPN plan is available for $4.99 per month ($12 for 3 months, $22 for six months and $40 for 12 months). A 30 GB dedicated IP US VPN plan is available for $10 per month ($25 for 3 months, $48 for 6 months and $82 for 6 months). The unlimited bandwidth plans are much more expensive and start from $15 per month and $20 per month for shared and dedicated IP US VPN plans respectively. The price varies for different countries’ plans so it is advisable to check the company’s official site for the latest prices. The company provides a 1 hour test account which should give you an idea about the quality of the service. The company offers refunds only if a customer is unable to use the service for some reason and files a refund request within 3 days of the purchase.

Final Verdict

Overall, VPNSeek delivers a decent VPN service. While people looking for unlimited server switching and bandwidth would be disappointed, the service is a viable option for those who want limited bandwidth VPN service with access to just one country’s VPN server. So if you are looking for an established VPN service that delivers on its promises, check out the offers from VPNSeek. For more information, please visit: www.vpnseek.com.
