VPN Cast Review – High Security For One And All

Monday, June 10th, 2013

VPN Cast is one of the latest VPN services to hit the crowded VPN market. Established in 2013, VPN Cast is brought to you by a Canadian company which hopes to deliver best possible security and anonymity to its customers. In this detailed VPN Cast Review, we will check out the features of the service and decide whether it is worth joining.

Server Locations and Site Access

VPN Cast has servers in 3 countries – United States, Canada and Romania. Although the company doesn’t have severs in key markets like United Kingdom, you need to keep in mind that the service is quite new so they are probably going to add more servers in the coming months. The company provides unlimited server switches with every VPN plan so you can unlock location restricted services like CBS, CTV, ABC, Netflix, HBO On Demand, Hulu, Amazon instant videos, NFL, MTV and Pandora from any corner of the world. The service would also come in handy when you are travelling and would like to access Facebook, Twitter, Gmail etc. regardless of local censorship (useful for China and Middle East).

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

VPN Cast offers high speed and unlimited bandwidth to its customers. While the exact speed would depend on several factors like your current location, location of VPN server, speed provided by your ISP and VPN protocol used, you can expect to get best speeds from VPN Cast without experiencing any kind of downtime or throttling. The company even offers anonymity for torrenting activities but you are not allowed to use US servers for peer to peer sharing.

Privacy Settings

VPN Cast provides up to 256 bit encryption through its network. The exact encryption level available to you would depend on the protocol used to connect to the service. The company offers its services through PPTP (128-bit encryption), L2TP (256-bit encryption) and OpenVPN (256 bit encryption + 160 bit digital certificate) protocols. These protocols provide matchless security for most online activities such as browsing, streaming, emailing, VOIP and instant messaging. The service also allows you to secure your IP address, identify and financial data while using Wi-Fi networks of airports, malls, coffee shops and book stores.

VPN Cast does not spy on users’ online sessions plus they don’t sell user data to third parties. The company deletes its logs on a daily basis which ensures that your online activities remain safe from surveillance and monitoring.

Supported Operating Systems

VPN Cast is compatible with most widely used operating systems like Windows (7/Vista/XP), Android (for Smartphones and tablets), Linux, Mac and iOS (for iPads and iPhones). The service can be configured on 3 devices at a time; however you are allowed to connect only from one device at a time. Even though it is easy to setup and configure the service, the company does not provide detailed setup instructions for all operating systems. This is something that the company should look into and rectify on an urgent basis.

Customer Support

VPN Cast offers support through telephone and email. The telephone support is available from 9 AM and 7 PM EST, Monday to Friday. The email support is available 24 hours a day which should come in handy in case you are facing connectivity or speed problems.

Pricing Options

VPN Cast’s unlimited plans start from $7.99/month ($19.99 for 3 months, $39.99 for 6 months and $59.99 for a year). The company does not offer a free trial but it does offer a 48 hour money back guarantee which should be enough for those who want to test the service without risking their money.

Final Verdict

Overall, VPN Cast is a decent VPN service. While the company does not have servers in many important locations and its knowledgebase section seems incomplete, it does offer good speeds and support for torrenting. So if you are looking for a no-frills VPN service, check out the VPN plans from VPN Cast. For more information, please visit: www.vpncast.com.
