PureVPN Review

UPDATE : There is an updated review which can be found here

If you have made your way here you probably know exactly what a VPN and a VPN service is, if not I shall give you a brief explanation. A VPN is a virtual private network and what that boils down to is a secure network link between 2 networks over the internet. There are many reasons why you would need this but some of the more ‘practical uses’ for this is anonymity, security and a handy tool to bypass pesky geotargeting systems.

PureVPN is a great provider. My first experience of them was via the ticket system where they offered to do a remote install and configuration for me. I decided I would put them to the test and got them to do this for me on my Mac. PureVPN were fast and friendly and so I can really recommend them to any of the less technically minded users out there, or even the lazy user. Their website is clean and easy to navigate and they have a really good knowlegbase section if you do run into any problems along the way you can probably find your answer here.

PureVPN’s Network is extensive and I was on the ‘High bandwidth’ package and this offered me servers in UK, USA, Canada, Germany, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland and Romania. I was testing using L2PT IPSEC but they also offer PPTP so I was happy with these. When testing VPN services I use a few ‘real world’ methods. I download a 100Mb file and get the speeds of these based against my download using no VPN. I also test some TV services such as Hulu.com and iPlayer and make sure that these stream continuously without interruption. One thing I do not test but is very important to know is their stance on P2P and torrent ussage. PureVPN allow torrents and P2P on all servers EXCEPT USA, UK and France. They do log connection attempts, session lengths and certain network information but they don’t log usage or look at what content you are downloading or viewing.

When it comes to streaming, I was able to watch hulu.com with only one small hiccup where needed to re-buffer. From the UK VPN I watched iPlayer without any problems. The speed tests were not the best I have seen but they offered what I would call good solid results. None managed to completely max out my line but none of them were too slow that I got frustrated. Below is the speed graph from these downloads. These results compare very favourably to other ‘cheap’ providers so at $6pm these are superb.

In Conclusion :
PureVPN starting at $6 per month this is a very good deal. They offer good protocols, great support and good server locations. There log policy is not too prohibitive so you can make use of them if you want to ‘hide’ your torrent usage form your ISP or if you would like to watch hulu.com from outside the USA or iPlayer from outside the UK.

    I have been using PureVPN for a week now. They have been extremely helpful, answering my e-mails after just a few minutes! I’m in China and it was hard for me to set up the VPN by myself to unblock the social network sites, but PureVPN helped me out by taking remote control over my computer, and in just minutes it was up and running, working perfectly and unblocking Facebook and Twitter! I can highly recommend PureVPN!

    I have been using PureVPN for 6 month now and I am a very satisfied user. The team support is the best, the most efficient as so fast in responding to any problem I am faced with. I am in China and one of the most difficult thing for me has been to set up the VPN here and the Team support has been so patient and helpful with the remote control system. And today, again had some difficulties in connecting and the help was outstanding. Thank you to you all at PureVPN and I can only recommended it highly and I am so happy I have chosen this service.
