PureVPN is one of the biggest VPN providers on the market, and this is our brand new PureVPN review, which we had to write as so much is happening in the VPN business. Our original review was written back in the start of 2013, but now here is our brand new PureVPN review.
If you start reading the comments on the bottom of this page you will soon understand that PureVPN is one of the most debated VPN providers on the market. Quite a lot of people hate them, while the more quiet ones are those people who use their services and who are very satisfied with them, so no reason at all for them to complain. The latter group is much bigger than the first group, but it can be worth knowing that both groups do exist.
The website of PureVPN had a big change made to it earlier this year, and many people consider it to be far better now than earlier. Unfortunately we do not agree, because we are conservative, and the strange scrolling available at the site currently is not really something we prefer. But, that does not really matter, because what matters and what is important is whether their VPN services are good or not, once you have first bought them and subscribed to their services.
PureVPN and pricing
Of all the VPN providers on the market PureVPN is one of those with the very best prices. As you visit the PureVPN homepage you will soon see that a 1 month package normally cost around 10 USD, a 6 month package cost 45 USD and a 12 month package cost 49,9 USD. The one year subscription is therefore by far the best. In addition they often add special bargains from time to time, so at the time writing they have a discount on the one month package making the price only 7,95 USD. In addition, if you wait a little bit at the PureVPN website, they will often have a pop-up window coming offering you further 10% discount on all package prices if you sign up within a few minutes. All in all, the prices of PureVPN are among the best on the market.
New is 2016 is that PureVPN has changed their refund policy. They now have a seven day full refund policy which is valid if you have used less than 3GB of bandwidth (increase from 500MB earlier) and if you have had less than 100 connections made to their servers.
PureVPN and what you get
As you sign up for the VPN services of PureVPN you will get access to all PureVPN servers all around the world, and that is quite a lot of servers. At the time writing (January 2016) that means that you can get access to IP addresses in more than 140 nations worldwide as PureVPN currently has servers in 141 nations of the world. All big and important nations are included, and they also have servers in quite some smaller and interesting nations. The fact that they have servers in more than 140 nations worldwide makes them one of the absolute biggest VPN providers on the market. As you sign up for PureVPN you will gain access to all these servers, meaning that you can get IP addresses in all these nations with your subscription.
Here are some other things included as you sign up for a subscription with PureVPN:
- 5 multiple logins, meaning that you can use the same subscription at up to 5 different devices at the same time (no other VPN provider has such an offer).
- They support the following protocols: PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, SSTP, OpenVPN & IKEv2
- Users can switch between all servers as much as they want to.
- All users gain access to the PureVPN SmartDNS service for free (if they sign up for 12 months).
PureVPN – speeds
Maybe the most important thing when you choose a VPN provider is the matter of speeds on their servers. If you use a VPN provider and connect to their servers, and suddenly all your download speeds drop, that is a disaster, and you will not be happy with the provider. Based on our experiences using PureVPN, we must admit that in general we are very happy. First of all, the PureVPN application for Windows starts and runs very quickly. Connecting to the servers is just as easy, and as we used PureVPN to watch Netflix in the USA, Netflix in the UK, Netflix in Germany and Netflix in Austria, we had no problems at all doing that. And let us not forget, that Netflix requires a whole lot of bandwidth, so that is a positive thing. We can of course not guarantee that all servers in all nations will have acceptable speeds, but in general based on our recent speed tests, we are very satisfied with PureVPN, and if we need to get an IP address in another nation or so on to reach some geo-blocked material, or maybe just secure our Internet connection, PureVPN is very likely to be the VPN provider we pick for the purpose.
If you need a VPN provider and want one with good speeds, lots of servers and easy to use, then PureVPN might be what you are looking for. If you want to use the subscription on several devices simultaneously, then PureVPN is by far the best option. If you want to sign up for a VPN provider with a good money back policy then PureVPN has gotten much better in 2016, but if you want to sign up for one with an even better refund policy, go for HideMyAss.
