VPNme Review – What To Expect From The Service?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

VPNme is a VPN service provider based in Delaware, United States. The service was launched in 2011 by a team of tech-savvy individuals who wanted to deliver a fast and secure privacy service. This VPNme Review will focus on the features offered by VPNme and recommend whether the service is worth subscribing.

Server Locations & Site Access

As of now, VPNme has VPN gateways in United States (East Coast, West Coast) and United Kingdom. While the number of server locations is undoubtedly on a lower side, the service is perfect for American and British expats who want to access local and premium content from their home countries from any part of the world.

VPNme makes it easy to unblock On-Demand services like Pandora, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Demand 5, HBO Go, iTV Player, ABC Player, Eurosport, FOX, Xfinity, Amazon Prime, MTV, USA Network, Vevo, STV, Lovefilm, 4OD, Hulu, NBC, CBS, UK TV, Sky Go, CWTV, TNT, NHL, Vudu and MLB from any geographical area in the world. In addition, the service can be used to bypass censorship and access popular sites such as Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, YouTube and Viber from restricted locations (such as China, Middle East, Brazil, Thailand, workplaces and schools).

VPNme customers can access premium services both from UK and US since the company allows unlimited IP changes and server switches.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth

VPNme’s servers are connected to 1 GBPS nodes so customers can expect ultra-fast speeds for their downloading, VOIP, streaming, P2P and gaming sessions. The company doesn’t throttle browsing speed or restrict the bandwidth in any way. VPNme has clusters of servers at each location which allows it to manage the peak load in a much better way and deliver a faster service to customers. Additionally, the company owns all of its servers and hardware plus it doesn’t oversell its service so it can respond to technical problems faster and deliver an uninterrupted service.

Privacy Settings

VPNme delivers a secure VPN service through PPTP, IKEv2, L2TP/IPsec and OpenVPN protocols. The support for multiple protocols ensures that customers can choose the best possible protection for their computer or mobile device. The service offers protection from all kinds of snooping and hacking attacks (even when you are connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot) and ensures privacy of all types of online activities (including browsing, FTP, VOIP, emailing and ICQ).

VPNme does not capture usage logs (including IP addresses or usage patterns). However, if the company receives a legal notice then it may release personal data to comply with the request.

Supported Operating Systems

VPNme works with Linux (Ubuntu), Windows (XP, 7, 8), Mac OS-X, iPhones, Android, iPads and DD-WRT routers. There is no proprietary VPN client available so you must setup the service manually. The company has done a good job of providing detailed configuration instructions for all systems and protocols so anyone should be able to start using the service within minutes of signing up.

VPNme has more than 10,000 IPs under its fold and allows its customers to change their IP for every new connection or website (each site will see a different IP). In addition, customers get access to extra features such as built-in firewall, ad blocking, SOCKS and HTTP proxies, port forwarding, NAT mode (with push-button random IPs) and web proxy through Tor. The company permits up to 5 connections simultaneously so you can secure your desktop computer, laptop, tablet and Smartphone at the same time with just one VPNme account.

Customer Support

VPNme offers ticket based customer support. The company has published troubleshooting instructions on its site so it is even possible to resolve common issues without having to contact the support staff.

Pricing Options

VPNme’s unlimited plans cost $6.95/month or $39.95 a year($3.33/month). The company accepts payments though Credit Cards, PayPal, Amazon Payments and Bitcons so customers can choose to remain anonymous while subscribing to the service. Unfortunately, the company does not offer free trials or refunds so you can’t test the service without spending some money. However, it is possible to use promo codes and save money during the subscription process.

Final Verdict

Overall, we are pleased with what VPNme has to offer. While the service has very few gateway locations and doesn’t provide free trials or refunds, it does offer many features that are not available with other VPN service providers. We recommend the service to people who wish to access US or UK based content or those who are not happy with their current VPN provider. For more information, please visit: www.vpnme.com.
