First, a really good and much appreciated article on VPNs by Clive Webster (Shopper 354). It would have been great to have had a review of some of them at the end of the article to suggest which ones are the best free ones and which are the best paid for ones.
Hopefully you can clarify one part: it says in the article that “our favourite paid-for VPN is NordVPN”. However, back in the January issue you made ExpressVPN a Best Buy and it is still in the Best Buys section as the go-to VPN.
So which of these two is best and why? Stephen
Having used both products personally, we have to say that ExpressVPN just edges it. It’s exceptionally fast, very versatile and has continued to give access to US Netflix when other products have failed.
In terms of the ISP email issue raised by Mike, this is a problem that will affect all VPNs. To get round it, you’ll most likely need to set any VPN to connect to a UK server. And you’ll need your ISP to support verification, so that you can log in to send email.
