Protocols: OpenVPN, PPTP, L2TP, SSTP

Service: ExpressVPN provides a paid OpenVPN with multiple servers in 45 different countries with advanced configuration settings for TCP, L2TP/IPSec, SSTP and PPTP.

Just download the software and you are good to go. It is probably one of the simplest set-ups available. Simple, clean client interface for server selection and option to connect via TCP.

For smartphone and tablet users, it’s also very simple to use. Excellent apps available for Android, iPhone and iPad. One desktop/laptop and one mobile device under the same account can be connected simultaneously.

ExpressVPN should be ideal for people in China or Middle East. They’re geared to that with West Coast server locations and they work pretty hard to make sure people in those countries have multiple ways to connect reliably and get around ISP and government filters.

There is a 30-day money back guarantee but no trial account.

Privacy: This service keeps server logs of your IPs, email addresses, credit card information and is a US company governed by US law. See their Policy/Terms/FAQ

Our Thoughts: With a decent size network, ExpressVPN provides a good service particularly for those wishing to access sites that may be blocked in their area. Speeds are good across the network. Ease of set-up means the service is ideal for VPN newcomers.

Note: The handshake protocol (MSCHAP_V2) used by many PPTP connections has been cracked and therefore PPTP could now be considered unencrypted. For maximum security use OpenVPN or L2TP.

    I travel regularly to HK and China and would have major issues if it weren’t for my ExpressVPN account. Good service and reasonably fast.

    Living in China and always used ExpressVPN. Only now, Nov12-Jan13 there’s lots of problems and i think they’re struggling to keep on top of it here, it always drops out
    after few hours use.
    Best connection (im in Nanning,Guangxi province) is HONG KONG.
    Its fast,reliable, easy 1 click software and youtube downloads fast.

    My gripe…there email support is next to useless, waited 5 days twice now..they need an ar$e kicking & fix this,else..recommend.

    I’ve been using Express VPN for over a year now and its the best service for when I’m traveling – I would totally recommend this and its definitely worth $8.95 per month to access US sites.

    I have recently sent out a ticket and they have not replied yet, although speed is fast the reliability has gone down with the support. There are a lot of problems for mac but not for windows, so they need to work on that.

    Very reliable VPN with good speeds from here in the UK. Not the cheapest VPN for sure but I value reliability and consistency above anything else.

    ExpressVPN is great. The best thing about them is their customer service. If I had a problem they would contact me back ASAP. I use it all the time in China and it has only failed me once – when my new company had a crazy IT department with solid firewalls like the FBI or the CIA. Speed’s great, can access youtube and facebook and any other website in China. What more can you ask. Price is a bit more than others (e.g. astral) but i’m happy with it.
