Service Overview and Reviews

Protocols: OpenVPN

Service: AirVPN provides OpenVPN with 200+ high performance servers in 18 countries (inc. US, UK, Europe & Asia) with no traffic, time or speed limits.

Anonymity is an absolute priority of AirVPN and it was created and maintained by activists who strongly support Net Neutrality and privacy. IPs are shared and every protocol is welcome, including P2P across their entire network.

AirVPN allows you to do remote port forwarding enhancing the performance of applications like BitTorrent, eMule, and other P2P clients.

They’ve done a top-notch job supporting a wide array of platforms and providing clear and detailed instructions. Supported platforms and configs are Windows, OSX, Linux, Android, IOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod), DD-WRT, Tomato, AsusWRT, pfSense, TOR, and SSH and SSL Tunnels.

AirVPN is also one of the few VPN providers to pull off a smooth and full-fledged Linux client, which is great to see.

If using an Ubuntu distro, see this post for some installation tips.

AirVPN allows customers to access a number of popular geo-restricted services from any server in the world, for example to watch BBC and use BBC iPlayer without having to connect to their UK servers, or access Hulu without having to connect to their USA servers etc.

Every server includes native support of OpenVPN over SSH to finally give full VPN access to customers and users from China and Iran and to bypass OpenVPN traffic shaping performed by some (very rare) Western ISPs. (Fully and successfully tested from Beijing , Shangai and Tehran residential ISPs.)

AirVPN allows up to 3 simultaneous connections (on different servers) per account! Also includes a “killswitch” feature called Network Lock.

Recent major backend system upgrade, which included general hardening of security and anonymity, additional Heartbleed-type vulnerability protections, enhanced cryptography, added TLS-auth layer, etc.

Fully compliant with the European Union directives which protect your privacy.

Privacy: AirVPN does not monitor and does not log your activity online. See their Policy/Terms/FAQ

Coupon / Discount:* We have negotiated a special discount of 10% with AirVPN. Insert the AirVPN coupon code bvfu_10 just before the checkout to receive your discount.

Our Thoughts: AirVPN provides an excellent service with great speeds across a wide network. Their privacy policy is one of the strongest and most transparent and they are one of the few VPN Service providers who accept Bitcoins. The client software is both excellent and very easy to use, connections rarely drop and speeds are very fast.

    If the reviewer thinks AirVPN is so good, why does it get 4.5 on things like features, without telling us what was lacking?

    Now to update people on AirVPN in 2016:

    – More features
    – Still rock-solid security
    – Still 3 connections from anywhere.
    – The review didn’t mention there’s no speed limits either, but still a guranteed minimum

    @defjeff
    The client is excellent, for one and is constantly being developed and there IS a “killswitch”. It’s called “Network Lock”. This feature is in fact BETTER than most other VPN “killswitches”, because those switches often either don’t work or respond too slowly or have other issues. You can also have 3 connections now, from anywhere. While 3 might seem limited, it’s actually perfect, because adding more would mean having to introduce a RADIUS server and thus add logging. This is 3 connections from anywhere in the world as well, from any other device; so it’s very generous in fact. Especially when coupled with the high-quality servers.

    Sure, you might pay more than usual for Air compared to others. But is it worth it if you pay less money to a different provider, for fake security? Seriously, AirVPN is good.
