ibVPN is a low cost VPN service with prices starting at just $4.95 per month. They have been in business since 2003. In VPN years, this is pretty darn old.

 

Protocols

IbVPN supports many protocols including PPTP, L2TP, SSTP, and OpenVPN. This list is similar to what you will see from most premium VPN providers. PPTP tends to be the fastest protcol, while also being the least secure. L2TP, SSTP, and OpenVPN (SSL) are generally regarded as secure. The higher overhead from this added security may result in slightly reduced speeds. SSTP is the recommended protocol in areas of the world where it might be hard to otherwise connect (Middle East & China). Users of ibVPN can to connect using any of these four protocols using their Windows client.

 

Servers

IbVPN has more than 77 servers in 22 different countries. The country list includes the United States (25), United Kingdom (10), Canada (3), Germany (4), Ireland (1), Russia (2), The Netherlands (6), France (2), Switzerland (2), Australia (1), Egypt (1), Turkey (1), Panama (1), New Zealand (1), Singapore (1), Finland (1), Italy (1), Spain (1), Hong Kong (1), Romania (1), and Luxembourg (1). Torrents are allowed on 3 servers in The Netherlands, 2 in Canada, and the server in Luxemborg. The company owns a pool of more than 1,900 IP addresses to satisfy the needs of 25,000+ clients. 2 simultaneous connections are allowed from each account. This means your computer and smartphone can be connected at the same time.

Price

IbVPN has several different pricing packages, all cheaper than most VPN Services. They range anywhere from $5.95 per month to $10.95 a month, with better pricing the more months you buy at a time. You can also add more connections for a nominal cost. IbVPN also offers a 15 Day Money Back Guarantee. Unlike other VPNs, they do have a free trial period, though it only lasts for six hours.

Speed

IbVPN performed well in our tests. Some servers tended to be a little on the slow side, although this is the case with any provider. The slow downs are frequently the result of issues with the network in the chosen country and not necessarily IbVPN’s fault.

 

Support

IbVPN has a good FAQ that has good explanations for different problems. Regular support is conducted by email. It is not available 24 hours a day, and support times are reasonable.

 

Privacy

As the name implies, privacy is where this service excels. They have special torrent VPN packages if that is your primary focus. Users can also pay using any number of digital currencies, including Bitcoin. Accepting digital currency, while not requiring personal details is the marker of a provider that respects privacy. The privacy policy also explicitly states that they not spy on their users and no logging whatsoever is conducted. That answer is about as conclusive as you could hope.

 

Summary

Overall, IbVPN is a decent choice for VPN service. They have an impressive server list, work on several different platforms, and are inexpensive. They also provide a few options for customers seeking torrent access. For simple private browsing, IbVPN is a good choice.

    A real strong and friendly live support + the 6 hour trial convinced me to become a client.Very happy with how easy IbVPN has been to set up. What I appreciate most about them is their customer service. They are always available whenever you need their assistance.
