IPVanish is one of our favorite VPN services. They offer a great mix of quality and value. With servers in 18 countries their network is quickly expanding. The IPVanish client means no complicated setup. Switch locations and IP’s anytime using OpenVPN for maximum protection. You can also connect via PPTP or L2TP from your iPhone, iPad or android device.

PureVPN offers a little different set of features than previous award winners. Instead of OpenVPN they support SSTP. Along with PPTP and L2TP protocols. While we prefer OpenVPN, the SSTP protocol has advantages for Windows users. PureVPN also has a VPN client. With support for Windows, Mac and Linux. As well as iPhone, iPad, Android and DD-WRT routers. With high quality VPN access starting from $6.25 a month.
PureVPN has a number of plans to choose from. We focus on their best which offers unlimited VPN access from 50+ VPN servers located in 17 countries (full list) along with support for PPTP, L2TP and SSTP connections. VPNSP visitors enjoy unlimited VPN access from just $8.67 a month.
Strong VPN has been a leader in the VPN industry for several years. They offer a wide range of VPN accounts based on protocol and server locations. We prefer the all-you-can-eat offers from services like HMA and IPVanish because an all inclusive plan from Strong VPN costs $30 a month. Even then you have some restrictions. We recommend Strong VPN for those who have specific location needs.
Strong VPN has a large network but most users only have access to a fraction of the servers. With plans supporting PPTP, L2TP, SSTP and OpenVPN connections. We like their US / UK regional accounts. With PPTP access to servers in the United States starting from $7 a month.
OverPlay offers members quite a bit for the price. With a large VPN network and client for easy connections. OverPlay is like HMA and IPVanish in that they offer an all-you-can-eat plan. With support forOpenVPN, PPTP and L2TP protocols. Connect from Windows, Mac and Linux. As well as iPhone, iPad, Android devices and even DD-WRT routers. With prices starting from $8.33 a month for unlimited VPN access.
