One of the oldest hands in the VPN business, IPVanish comes with an attractive and well-designed app for both Windows and Mobile and a full feature set. However, it has decided to give up the fight against Netflix and no longer offers support for working around Netflix’s geoblocks. There’s still an awful lot to recommend about IPVanish — we particularly like its ability to arrange servers by by ping or bandwidth. That makes it much easier to select a fast server for you without having to go through the usual server hopscotch. Picking the fastest server in both Australia and the US produced some very impressive speedtest.net results when we tested it. Our 30Mbps connection was essentially maxed by the VPN on both servers, which is very impressive. IPVanish doesn’t throttle BitTorrent, either. IPVanish ticks many of our other boxes as well: no logging, PPTP and OpenVPN support, 24/7 customer support, money-back guarantee. Indeed, except for its lack of Netflix support, IPVanish is great pick.
