PureVPN is a quality VPN service that many users have signed up for through my website, and have stayed with the service for many months (maybe years, but I haven’t really paid close attention)
There are definitely some great things to say about the service, and perhaps a few things to watch out for.
For torrent downloaders, you’ll be happy to know that PureVPN still allows torrents on some of their servers. Some other reviews have said that it’s possible to download torrents on all servers, but according to their live support team, there are just some countries which will allow it, including Russian, Malaysia, and maybe a few others (I can’t remember)
You get access to PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, and SSTP VPN servers for all packages, and they have a growing network of servers in 18 countries (Current as of Nov 2012). Not a the biggest network, but not bad at all, and they cover all the hot spots like the US and UK, as well as some European and Southeast Asian countries, plus Canada, and Australia.
The also offer a dedicated IP option, which is cool because most services either a) Don’t offer this option or b) Offer it, but don’t tell you which servers are dedicated and which are shared.
There are way more payment options at PureVPN, which means that more people can sign up. UKash, PaySafeCard,Web Money, and Alert Pay some way to pay for those who get a Paypal or Visa account, which are the standard ways to pay.
They also have corporate VPN accounts. I haven’t looked to much into these, but on the off-chance that you’re looking for something for your overseas employees or to protect your office network, check these guys out.
This is getting to be a long list, but they also have a 3-Day trial account for a super cheap price ($2.5) which is great for someone who doesn’t need a whole month of service.
A Few Things To Watch Out For
While unlimited bandwidth is pretty much standard with other services, you need to upgrade to the Unlimited Plan, otherwise you’ll be limited to 30 GB per month. This will probably only affect the serious filesharing people, but still…
They don’t offer OpenVPN, which means for Mac & XP users you’ll have to stick with PPTP or L2TP/IPSec. SSTP is only compatible with Vista, Win7, and now Windows 8. Android and iPhone users don’t need to worry about this unless you planned to root or jailbreak your device.
$74.95 for 1 year is pretty cheap, but that’s with the 30 GB limit. For the unlimited plan, you pay $160 per year, or $18 for an individual month, and that’s expensive compared to others services that offer unlimited packages for less than $80 per year.
Their money back guarantee is also limited to 3 days, 4 less than the standard 1 week.
