We have previously written extensively about the importance of using a VPN, be it a free vpn service or the premium service. In addition to hiding your IP and ensuring privacy, VPN helps you access area specific websites like Hulu, ABC etc and any blocked websites.
VPNTraffic is a new entrant to the overly populated Premium VPN market. Like many others, it is also PPTP based and hence supports multiple platforms like Windows and Mac OS. I have been testing Vpntraffic for the past few days and I must say the service has been fairly good. Except once when their servers went offline, the vpn service has managed to perform as advertised.
With Vpntraffic I could easily stream multiple online episodes on Hulu, watch a couple of NFL games and even voice chat on Skype without buffering issues. The connection was reliable most of the times. The best part of Vpntraffic is that the pricing. They have a single “multi-vpn” plan which comes in 3 packages – 1 month, 3 months and 12 months costing $5, $10 and $35 respectively.
If you are looking for a professional and cheap VPN service, you can definitely go for VPNTraffic. But I would suggest you take a monthly plan to test it out yourself before committing for a bigger package. Some Premium VPN services these days are ‘fly-by-night’ kinds, so it is always better to go for trusted ones. VPNtraffic is affiliated with another reliable VPN host – VPNHere. You have the option to pay via Paypal, Credit Cards or Wire Transfer.
Unlike some VPN services, there are no restrictions on Torrent & P2P with VPNTraffic. For a partly fee of $5 per month, it is definitely worth a shot. For $5, you get both US & Japan-based IPs.
