VyprVPN is a top notch VPN service when compared to the other premium providers – which is amazing considering that they are a relatively new company. Goldenfrog, the company that runs VyprVPN, is actually from the same group that does Giganews (Usenet provider). Giganews has been a dominant player in Usenet for many years, so it’s no wonder their VPN offering is doing well too. Adding to the bundle, VyprVPN customers now receive free online storage with Dump Truck.
The VPN service from VyprVPN can protect your online activity and communications whether at home or on the go. Anytime you connect to the internet from your desktop or mobile device VyprVPN can protect your online privacy and security. The service provides apps for the desktop (Win/Mac) and mobile (Android/iOS). Apps for mobile are free and included in the service. You can use the VyprVPN service on cellular networks, public Wi-Fi and anywhere you connect to the Internet. VyprVPN runs on a network built from the ground up by a company committed to restoring individuals’ rights to online privacy.
One of the great features about VyprVPN is the ability to use it with your mobile device, such as your iPad, iPhone, or Android phone/tablet. This adds an extra level of privacy and security for anyone using a smartphone. Considering the amount of data most people utilize on their mobile devices, having a VPN there just makes sense.
only has a few countries right now (Jan 2013 Update: Country count continues to rise to 7!), they are strategically positioned to service the customers quite well. There is east coast and west coast US, EU, and Asia (Jan 2013 UPDATE: Now including Canada!). Speeds are reflective of their strategic position focus, with their users reporting little or no degradation in connection speed when using the VPN. Since they allow file transfer/P2P/BT downloads, this is a big benefit for anyone that shares files over the internet. Our speed tests, as shown below, were reaching close to 20 megabit per second (mb/sec) download using the VPN on an overseas international connection (Amsterdam). Continental US speeds East and West were also high, over 2000 KiloBytes per second (KB/sec), or still around 17-18 megabit per second (mb/sec).
If you are a Giganews Diamond customer you can actually get VyprVPN for free ($15.00/month value). So if you’re considering buying Usenet service as well, in addition to buying VPN service, you can save quite a bit of money by going with Giganews and purchasing the Diamond account. It’s a great combination when you consider Giganews has a SSL encryption, and the connection is further secured by a VPN tunnel!
To round out the offering, VyprVPN customers now receive 5GB free online storage with Dump Truck. Dump Truck, also from Giganews, provides users with the ability to securely store and share their files in the cloud. Dump Truck has integrated apps for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. Whether on your desktop at home, or on the road with a mobile device, Dump Truck gives you the ability to upload, download, sync, and share files at will. Service additions like Dump Truck online storage are an example of why our editors rate the value of VyprVPN so highly.
