Boasting more than 50 servers’ locations in about 14 countries, PureVPN is one of the noticeable players in the market. It started its VPN service back in 2006 and its progress so far has proved impressive enough considering the number of countries in which its servers are now located. While also providing its service to users in Asia and the Middle East, PureVPN throws 128-bit encryption and Wi-Fi connections security into the fray.
Among the fourteen countries in which PureVPN servers are located you will find the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands and Luxemburg. In additional to those countries, servers are also located in France, Malaysia, Singapore, Sweden and Switzerland. New York, Washington, Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Sayreville are some server locations in the United States. Multiple VPN technologies such as PPTP, L2TP/IPSec and SSTP protocols are supported by PureVPN. The connections are also made secure with 128-bit encryption and additional protection for wireless connections.
The speed to be expected on PureVPN is not any different from what you will experience with any service provider. What can only make it somehow slower is the need for data encryption. The service is however both efficient and reliable for anything that you may want to do online. Windows, Mac OS X and Linux (Ubuntu) operating systems are all supported; so also are Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Google Chrome and Safari browsers. Smart mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad, Android and iPod Touch can also be used on the PureVPN service.
The set up of PureVPN follows a manual installation process, which is not exactly really hard to carry out. The installation is particularly easy when setting up on Microsoft Windows, especially so if you know how to set up different type of connections on the operating system. You only need to find your way to the Control Panel section, then find the feature for creating a new connection and input the connection details provided by PureVPN when you signed up.
PureVPN offers various types of pricing plans based on the different protocols supported. There are PPTP, L2TP/IPSec and SSTP technologies to choose from, each with its own different price and attached benefits. The pricing plans on offer include:
Standard Plan, which offers you 30GB allowance of data for the payment of $6 a month
Pure Platinum Plan – This attracts a payment of $10 per month
Pure Gold Plan – On this plan you can enjoy the privilege of 30GB and dedicated IP just for the payment of $15 a month
High Bandwidth Plan – This plan is best for those who require much more than the limited data allowance offered on the other plans, and it goes for the price of $18 per month.
There is also a 3-day trial account that goes for $2.50 for anyone who may be interested in having a test run of the service.
With PureVPN, you get to enjoy good connectivity always and you do not have to bother yourself about being restricted by the authority in your country or workplace. In short, you have unrestricted access to the Internet whenever and wherever you need it. The slight problems here are that PureVPN has limited number of servers to power its service. The VPN service, however, has a customer support to address whatever issues that users might come across while using it.
