VPNAce Review – What To Expect From This Privacy Solution?

Monday, April 21st, 2014

VPNAce is a relatively new privacy service which made its debut in December’ 2012. The company behind the service launched it with a handful of servers but in the last one year, it has expanded its operations significantly. In this VPNAce Review, you will get to know the most important features of the service and discover if it is worth your time and money.

Server Locations and Site Access

VPNAce has VPN gateways in the following countries: United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Romania and Netherlands. The choice of server locations is definitely on a lower side but the company is planning to expand its operations in several more countries in the next few months.

VPNAce makes it easy to bypass all types of censorship and firewalls so the customers can access their favorite sites like Facebook, Skype, YouTube, Twitter and Gmail even from China, Middle East and Latin America. In addition, the service allows you to unblock premium On-Demand services that are available only within America and Europe (more specifically, the countries where the company has servers) from any geographical region of the world. For instance, your VPNAce subscription allows you to access Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, RTL, Canal+, Pandora, CBS, USA Network, Sky Go, Demand 5, Deezer, Film1, BBC iPlayer, Lovefilm, UK TV, NHL, HBO Go, Amazon Prime, MLB, NBC, Pluzz, D17, Das Erste, Rara, Voyo, Eurosport, D8, ProSieben, 4OD, CWTV, TV Lab, Xfinity, Sat.1, TNT, Vevo, iTV, ABC, FOX, Sport1, RTVNH, Arte, WDR, STV, AT5, TMC, MTV, Vox, Vudu and W9 from any country in the world. What’s more, the company allows unlimited server switching thus making it possible to access local and premium content from all the 6 countries with just one subscription.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

VPNAce does not restrict bandwidth or speed in any way. Due to absence of speed and bandwidth limits, the service is well suited for resource consuming activities such as streaming of TV shows and movies, downloading tons of files, playing multiplayer games online and using VOIP and video conferencing facilities.

Privacy Settings

VPNAce offers a PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN based privacy service and secures data with 128 bit encryption. The encryption and secure tunneling features ensure that your vital details such as credit card numbers, passwords, social accounts, financial transactions and ecommerce activities remain protected from surveillance and hacking threats even when you are connected to an unsecured wireless network. Besides this, the service is capable of protecting different types of online activities (browsing, FTP, VOIP, messaging and emailing) with just one VPN configuration.

The company does not track your browsing activities but it does record timestamp, location from where connection is made, connection duration and bandwidth consumed for each VPN session. The company will not disclose customer information to third parties unless it is compelled to do so by a court.

Supported Operating Systems

VPNAce works with Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8), Mac OSX (10.4+), iPhones, iPads and Android. The company supplies VPN clients for each operating system so there is no manual configuration involved. ON the downside, the company does not permit multiple connections so you can secure only one device at a time.

Customer Support

VPNAce provides 24X7 customer support through email. Although the company has listed a telephone number on its site, it doesn’t provide technical support through phone. The company has not published any kind of troubleshooting information on its website so you would need to contact the support staff even for minor connection issues. On the positive side, the support staff makes it a point to reply to most queries in a timely fashion.

Pricing Options

VPNAce offers a 1 day free trial (with 1 GB bandwidth limit) to everyone. After the trial period is over, you have the option of subscribing to the service for $5.95/month, $14.95/3 months and $54.95/year. The company even provides a 14 day money back guarantee to all new customers.

Final Verdict

On the whole, VPNAce is a trustworthy privacy solution. However, the company must improve the quality of content and documentation available on its website since there are lots of contradictory statements published over there. But in the end, we certainly recommend that you take advantage of the generous free trial and check if the VPNAce service meets your privacy and security needs.
