Service Overview and Reviews

Protocols: OpenVPN, PPTP, L2TP, SSTP

Service: ExpressVPN provides a paid OpenVPN with 2000+ servers in 94 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.

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.

A single ExpressVPN subscription allows you to connect three devices at once – regardless of platform.

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.

    Not the cheapest, but service justifies the price!

    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.
