Earth VPN is headquartered in Northern Cyprus. They have servers 110+ servers in 32 countries. The company claims to not keep logs. Installation can be a bit more cumbersome than some other providers, but this is only a brief annoyance during the initial configuration. Cost is the biggest selling point of the service with plans costing just $3.99 per month or $39.99 per year. The annual price of around forty bucks isn’t that unheard of, but 4 bucks a month is pretty damn cheap. You are probably only likely to beat that with a promotional price from Private Internet Access or ibVPN.

 

Torrents

Earth VPN is heavily going after the torrent crowd. They heavily advertise the fact that they don’t store logs, offer unlimited bandwidth, and enable P2P.

 

Cheap VPN

You really can’t beat the $3.99 monthly price. $39.99 for an annual plan isn’t too shabby either. If your nickles are few and far between right now, this is the right service for you.

Pre-Configured Router

The good folks at Flashrouters sell a pre-configured for EarthVPN Linksys E4200. It is a little pricey at $199.95, but if you lack the time or technical know how, this can be a great deal.

 

Controversy

EarthVPN has undergone a couple major controversies in its relatively short existence. In one incident, WipeYourData claimed that a student in the Netherlands was quickly arrested after using EarthVPN to email a bomb threat to his school. The claim is that one of that data centers EarthVPN used was logging the data, even though EarthVPN wasn’t. You can read the story here. The author doesn’t stand behind the validity of the situation as adamantly as I would like from a trustworthy source.

The other controversy was when the list of EarthVPN users was hacked. You can read the Reddit thread on this situation here. I tend to believe this case and even asked the EarthVPN folks about it. They didn’t deny the incident, but instead insisted that you are not required to provide your true identity. I would take this recommendation to heart if you decide to signup for their service.

Despite these setbacks, I get the impression this company has the best intentions to provide a secure and private VPN service at the lowest possible price. You have to take into consideration when you read these stories that hackers are constantly trying to compromise the security of a VPN provider. It’s a pretty neat feather to have in their cap.

Summary

Overall, Earth VPN is a good service at an incredibly reasonable price. They are eager to attract customers who like to torrent. Our only knock is the setup process could be refined.
