VPN Master Review – Easy To Use VPN Service

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

VPNMaster service is brought to you by VPNMaster Inc. which is a US based company. Founded in 2008, the company aims to deliver fast and gimmick-free VPN service to its customers. In the VPN Master Review below, we check the pros and cons of the service and decide if it is worth subscribing.

Server Locations and Site Access

As of now, VPNMaster has servers in 14 different countries – United States, Netherlands, Sweden, Austria, Poland, United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, Canada, Iceland, Switzerland, Romania, Spain and France. The impressive choice of server locations means that you can unlock a lot of country restricted sites like Netflix, HBO Go, Amazon Prime, Hulu, ABC Player, BBC iPlayer, iTV, MTV, Demand 5, Eurosport, Zattoo, Fox and 4OD regardless of your current location. The service even allows you to unlock Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Skype and YouTube from countries like Saudi Arabia, China, Qatar, UAE and Brazil without revealing your true IP address. The company has a very generous switching policy so you can change your VPN server (and IP address) as many times you wish and unlock local content from all the 14 countries listed above.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

VPNMaster delivers extremely fast speeds with no bandwidth caps. The company restricts just 30 users per server (that are equipped with gigabit nodes) so that every customer gets near broadband speeds. This is indeed great news for those who wish to download/upload huge files, stream full HD movies and make VOIP calls without having to worry about downtimes or throttling. However, the company reserves to limit bandwidth for those people who consume more than 2 GB of bandwidth daily on a consistent basis.

Privacy Settings

VPNMaster delivers 128 bit encryption through its network. The service is compatible with common VPN protocols such as OpenVPN and PPTP which ensures that it can be used for maximum security and compatibility. The strong level of encryption ensures that your online activities (browsing, FTP, emails, Messaging) and personal details (credit card data, passwords, social accounts) remain safe from hackers even when you use low security wireless networks to connect to the internet.

The company stores statistical data and error reports to keep its network in the optimum condition. The logs are regularly deleted and are never shared with anyone unless it is required by law.

Supported Operating Systems

VPNMaster works well with most operating systems and devices including Linux, Mac, Windows (7/XP/Vista), iPads, iPhones and Android based smartphones and tablets. The service is even compatible with DD-WRT based routers so you can use it with Smart TVs, PS 3, Xbox 360, Wii and other compatible devices. The setup is quick and simple and even people who have never heard about VPNs should be able to configure and run the service within few minutes.

Customer Support

The company offers support through email and live chat. Since the live chat facility is available only during business hours, it is a much better option to contact the support team through email. The company’s knowledgebase section leaves a lot be desired since there are very few VPN related articles posted there.

Pricing Options

VPNMaster’s unlimited plans are available for $7.95 per month, $17.85 for 3 months and $47.4 for 1 year. The company issues refunds only if the refund request is made within 24 hours of the purchase.

Final Verdict

On the whole, VPNMaster delivers on its promises. Although the service does not support L2TP protocol, it does offer a great VPN service with very high speeds. So if you are looking for a fast and affordable VPN service then don’t forget to check the plans from VPNMaster. For more information, please visit: www.vpnmaster.com.
