WaselPro is a relatively new VPN provider that has positioned itself as “The best VPN in Middle East”. The service was launched in 2012 by iElement. B.V which is a Nijmegen, Netherlands based company. Read on this detailed WaselPro review to discover what the company has to offer and whether or not the service is worth its subscription money.

Server Locations and Site Access

WaselPro has servers in eight different countries – United States, France, United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, Ukraine and Turkey. Even though the company does not have a presence in Canada or Asia, it has a good server network in US and Europe. The well distributed server network would allow you to unblock your favorite sites like Facebook, Vonage, Twitter, Gmail, YouTube and Skype even from restrictive corporate environments and heavily censored regions such as China, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain and Brazil. With a Wasel Pro subscription, it also becomes possible to access location restricted premium sites such as Netflix, Pandora, Amazon Prime, ABC, Hulu, NFL, MLB, Spotify, Voddler, Eurosport, Viasat, Rara, MTV, NBC, CBS, BBC iPlayer, iTV, CWTV, Xfinity, Vudu, Lovefilm, Fox, HBO On Demand, 4OD, Demand 5, Sky, Zattoo, RTL, Arte, Vox, Sat.1, Canal+, M6, Deezer and Sport1 from any country in the world. In addition, since the company allows unlimited server switching through its network, it becomes possible to unlock GEO-IP restricted content from all the eight countries where the company has servers with just one VPN subscription.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

WaselPro does not impose any kind of speed or bandwidth limit upon its subscribers. This makes the service ideal for those who are looking for a high speed and bandwidth VPN service for streaming HD content online, playing online games, making VOIP calls or downloading tons of content. The company even permits torrenting activities so you can use the service to secure your bittorrenting sessions.

Privacy Settings

WaselPro delivers its VPN service via the L2TP and OpenVPN protocols. Unlike the PPTP protocol, these two protocols offer a higher level of encryption and allow you to secure your emailing, FTP, VOIP, browsing and messaging activities. In addition, the service protects your banking transactions, passwords and social accounts from hackers and sniffing programs while you are connected to an unsecure wireless network.

The company has a strict no logging policy which means your online activities are never logged or monitored. In addition, your personal details are never sold or rented to authorities, third parties or advertising companies.

Supported Operating Systems

WASEL Pro VPN works with Windows (XP/Vista/7/8), Mac OS X, iPhones, iPads and Android devices. The company offers an OpenVPN based client for Windows, Mac and Android but if you want to configure the service on your iPhone/iPad, you must configure the service manually. The custom client provided by the company is easy to install and allows you to connect and change servers with just one click. The company has also published detailed setup instructions on its portal which makes it easy even for tech challenged people to configure the service manually. The company permits 2 simultaneous connections with every VPN subscription so it is possible to use the service from a computer and a mobile device at the same time.

WASEL Pro also supports OpenVPN over SSH which cannot be blocked by any government firewall. This makes the service perfect for extremely restrictive environments where the authorities use Deep Packet Inspection technology to detect VPN connections (example China, Oman, Iran, and Syria). The SSH feature can be enabled by clicking a checkbox on the VPN client.

Customer Support

The company offers customer support through live chat and email. The live chat support is available round the clock in English and Arabic languages and the support staff even provides support through TeamViewer sessions. The company also updates its FAQ and news section from time to time so it makes sense to browse through these sections before contacting the support staff.

Pricing Options

WASEL Pro’s unlimited VPN plans are available from $9.99 for a day ($27 for 3 months, $50 for 6 months and $90 for a year). Apart from term discounts, the company also issues money saving coupons from time to time. The company provides a free trial account but it works only for 10 minutes per day. The company also offers a 7 day money back guarantee so you can test the service with total peace of mind.

Final Verdict

Overall, WASEL Pro delivers a satisfactory VPN service. Although the company does not have a vast server network, it offers certain unique features such as OpenVPN over SSH and OpenVPN support for Android that are not available with other VPN providers. We recommend checking the free trial of the service if other services are not working for you in Middle East (or any other region). For more information, please visit: www.waselpro.com.
