Detailed Private Internet Access Review – Rating, Speed & Everything
PPTP & IPSEC/L2TP, OpenVPN | DD-WRT VPN Compatible | SOCKS5 Proxy Included | No Traffic or Request logs
Doesn’t offer Money-Back | Limited Servers | L2TP for UK and US Servers
Private Internet Access are a company based in the USA, they offer VPN services in 9 countries including the US, France and the Netherlands. Their massive server list and the quality of the servers they are using are top notch.
The level of respect for privacy that the company exhibits is impressive, they don’t even ask for too many details on sign up. We were also pleased with the ability to pay with PayPal, at Allofvpn we love using PayPal, and not a lot of VPN providers offer this option.
Once we were signed up for Private Internet Access we were incredibly impressed with the speed of the connection, we will go into this in more detail later in the article but connection speed is hugely important if you are using VPN to connect to a streaming service like Netflix or Hulu.
Private Internet Access Pricing and Features
PIA offer a one size fits all solution for a fairly good price of $6.95 per month. There is an excellent annual package for just $39.95 which reduces your monthly price to a tiny $3.33 per month. We were a little taken aback by the lack of a free trial if we are honest, not even a limited one. This is a fairly basic aspect of almost every VPN provider.
Private Internet Access VPN Software
PIA allows you to download their own software which will connect you to their OpenVPN client. The client comes preconfigured with your username/password. PIA also has Port Forwarding available on servers located in Netherlands, Switzerland, Canada and Romania. The client is an absolute breeze to install and use and we cannot recommend it high enough.
Private Internet Access Platforms
There is a dedicated client for Mac OSx as well as widows 7, they also offer settings for most other platforms.
Private Internet Access Review Summary
We absolutely loved Private Internet Access and their service, our only quibble is the lack of a free trial, seriously guys just give us a day or two to see how good you are!
