VPN Power’s gateways are spread across 9 different countries in America and Europe. The company has a presence in United States, United Kingdom, Spain, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Russia, Poland and Austria.

The service is tailor made for customers who wish to bypass firewalls and censorship imposed by schools, universities, organizations as well as countries like China, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Brazil and Thailand. By connecting to the internet via VPN Power, you would be able to access your favorite sites like Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Gmail and YouTube even if they are blocked by your ISP or network administrator.

The company does not restrict you from switching servers which means you can access local services and On-Demand websites from 9 different countries with just one subscription.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

VPN Power delivers high speeds and unlimited bandwidth through its Gigabit servers. The service is well suited for speed and bandwidth hungry activities such as streaming of HD TV shows and movies, multiplayer gaming, VOIP as well as downloading. The company even allows torrenting from certain Europe based servers so you would be able to share and download content without leaking your true IP address.

Privacy Settings

VPN Power offers security and privacy through PPTP and OpenVPN protocols. While the PPTP protocol is no longer considered as secure, the company manages to deliver up to 256 bit military grade encryption through its OpenVPN solution. The high level of encryption protects your online activities from government and organization based surveillance plus it even allows you to use the Wi-Fi facilities at airports, malls, coffee shops and hotels without worrying about the security of your private data. The company’s servers are located in data centers that assure high level of physical security with round the clock surveillance by professional guards and alarm systems.

As per the privacy policy of the company, the company does not store usage or connection logs. However server level logging is done to monitor server performance and identify security breaches. The company does not share customer data with third parties unless it is forced to do so by a court.

Supported Operating Systems

VPN Power works with Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8), Mac OS X, iPhones, iPads, Linux (Ubuntu) and Android. The company does not offer proprietary client for any platform so you would need to configure the service manually. However, the manual setup process is extremely simple thanks to the step by step instructions and video tutorials provided by the company.

Customer Support

The company provides 24X7 customer support through live chat, email, tickets and phone. The company claims to respond to most queries within one hour which is an excellent response time. In addition, the support staff is willing to offer remote assistance help in case the need arises. Customers can also refer to the troubleshooting instructions available on the company’s portal to resolve common errors on their own.

Pricing Options

VPN Power subscriptions are available from $7.99 per month, $17.97 for 3 months ($5.99/month) and $47.88 USD per year ($3.99/month). In addition, it is possible to save money on your subscription by using VPN Power coupons and promo codes. Unfortunately, the company does not offer a free trial but you can claim a refund within 7 days of joining if you are not happy with the service.

Final Verdict

Overall, VPN Power delivers a praiseworthy VPN service. While the company does not have a presence in Asia yet, it delivers a fast and extremely secure VPN service to its customers.
