Saturday, January 30th, 2016

VPNVantage is a US based privacy service provider. Founded in June’ 2015, the provider is one of the newest entrants in the crowded VPN marketplace. This article will review VPNVantage’s features as well as check out the pros and cons of the service.

Server Locations & Site Access – VPNVantage has got VPN servers in six countries – United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Japan and Netherlands. The service allows you to unlock GEO-IP restricted On-Demand services which are available only in the above six territories plus it can also help you to get rid of censorship prevalent in most workplaces and schools as well as countries like China, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Brazil, Bahrain, Thailand and Qatar.

By changing your default IP (assigned by your local ISP), you would be able to access blocked services like Skype, BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Netflix, Facebook, Gmail, Amazon Prime, Twitter, HBO Now, Eurosport, Ten Sports, Xfinity, CBS, iTV Player, Spotify, TV Asahi, CBC, MLB, HBO Go, Vevo, ABC Player, ABC iView, Much Music, Rara, Deezer, Foxtel Play, Pandora, Demand 5, CTV, TNT, Hulu, The Comedy Network, TV Japan, Sky Go, Lovefilm, MTV, Global TV, CWTV, STV, Star TV, FOX, TV Tokyo, City TV, USA Network, E!, Bravo, NBC, NHL, 4OD and Vudu from any geographical area of the world.

What’s more, the company provides access to all gateways with each subscription which means you can unlock premium content from several different geographical areas without paying anything extra.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth – VPNVantage doesn’t enforce any type of speed/bandwidth restrictions upon its subscribers. Due to the excellent speeds available through the service, you would be able to stream HD content, download big files, communicate via Skype as well as play role-playing games without worrying about buffering or bandwidth quotas. The service even offers P2P support so it becomes easy to share/download content without revealing your identity.

Privacy Settings – VPNVantage supports common VPN protocols (PPTP, OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec) so you can choose a level of security as per your needs and device. The service encrypts your online sessions and sends them through a secure tunnel so your personal data remains safe from eavesdropping, snooping and hacking. Furthermore, it encrypts all types of online connections (including browsing, FTP, VOIP and messaging) by default and even protects you from hackers when you are connected to a public W-Fi hotpot.

VPNVantage doesn’t keep logs of user traffic. However, since the provider is based in USA, it needs to hand over subscriber/usage data to the authorities to comply with the court notices.

Supported Operating Systems – VPNVantage works on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. The provider offers its own client for Windows and Mac but you would need to configure the service manually on Android/iPads/iPhones. The good news is that the service can be used from up to 5 different devices simultaneously so there is no need to buy additional subscriptions for safeguarding your computers, Smartphones and tablets.

Customer Support – VPNVantage offers email and ticket based support. The company updates its Twitter feed and Facebook page on a regular basis so you can learn about service disruptions quickly.

Pricing Options – VPNVantage costs $5.95 a month, $23.70 for 6 months ($3.95/month) and $35.40 for one year ($2.95/month). The company doesn’t offer free trials but there is an unconditional 7 day money back guarantee available to all new subscribers.

Final Verdict – Overall, VPNVantage delivers a satisfactory VPN service. Although the provider has got servers at very few locations, the service doesn’t disappoint on speed, privacy or cost parameters. If you are looking for an affordable and reliable privacy service, I would definitely recommend checking out VPNVantage. For more information, please visit: www.vpnvantage.com.
