FastestVPN is the latest VPN I’m using. It’s got a super easy interface on my Macbook and it’s uber cheap! Only US$1/mo if you sign up for the 5 yr plan. Basically the same price as a pineapple bun. (and it works in China!)
I simply downloaded the software and installed it. It did all of the configuring on it’s own. Basically you select the location and protocol and it’ll connect right after you click on it. There’s an Android App, PC, Mac, and IOS version.
One drawback is the number of countries is a bit limited, and no Hong Kong. I don’t really need Hong Kong, but it would’ve been nice to have. Usually I connect to UK or US for video streaming or Romania for torrent downloading.
Right now the following countries are available:
- United Kingdom
Speeds were perfectly fine for anything I needed to do. Whilst certainly not as fast as accessing the internet without VPN, video streaming and downloading was plenty fast. See this speed test when connecting to Sydney or Bucharest. Both over 50mbps downloading.
Overall I liked FastestVPN for basic VPN usage. While it certainly isn’t the fanciest, nor does it have a ton of locations, it is extremely simple to use and very cheap!
