The name of ExpressVPN sounds so promising, that I had great expectations as I sat down in front of the computer, made a ExpressVPN subscription, downloaded the client and got started. Curious on what I thought about ExpressVPN after trying it for some days? Keep on reading the ExpressVPN review for more information.
The first impression was given by the ExpressVPN homepage. It was not a website after my taste, because the first your eye will see once you visit the site contains to little information. You need to scroll down and in fact quite a lot to find all the information you are looking for, and somehow the site didn’t make a to good first impression. Other services such as HideMyAss, IPVanish and EarthVPN give a far better first impression that ExpressVPN.
As soon as the subscription was made and the client downloaded I was ready to start testing and here are the results.
ExpressVPN have servers in 27 nations, and those are the following nations:
United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Panama, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Luxembourg, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Lithuania, India, Russia and Egypt.
Testing from Europe most VPN providers give bad speeds as you connect to servers on different continents, but ExpressVPN gave use decent download speeds as we connected to their servers in for example Australia, Japan and India. Some servers such as their Russian server turned out really slow to us, while several of their servers in Europe gave us download speeds around 5Mbps. These are quite good speeds, but it is a fact that many other providers give download speeds far above 10Mbps in Europe. However 5Mbps is a good enough download speed for most internet activity, so for many that will be enough.
ExpressVPN technical info
Once you download the ExpressVPN client you will by default use OpenVPN running over UDP. Other protocols are available as well such as TCP, L2TP/IPSec, SSTP and PPTP. ExpressVPN keep logs of user activity, which might be given away to authorities upon request.
ExpressVPN have great applications if you want to use your subscription on iOS or Android platforms. Very easy to install, easy to use and does the job making it a joy to connect your device to one of their VPN servers.
There are quite some VPN services out there cheaper than ExpressVPN, but there are also several services more expensive than ExpressVPN. Here you will get an overview showing the prices for the different ExpressVPn subscriptions.
1 month subscription: 12,95USD
6 months subscription: 59,95USD (9,99 USD per month)
12 months subscription: 99,95USD (8,32 USD per month)
ExpressVPN offer a 30 day money back guarantee and all subscriptions include unlimited bandwidth.
ExpressVPN review conclusion
ExpressVPN is easy to use, has a nice looking client and reasonable prices. The speeds are in most cases good, but they are seldom very good, so if you are in need of very good download speeds, you might want to look to some other VPN service. However the 30 day money back guarantee makes it quite harmless to make a subscription and try, and if you are unsatisfied, you can ask for the money back whenever you want and go try another VPN service instead.
