""A must if you download via Torrent sites, works great""

October 31, 2016  |  By xfactor333

Pros

1) This VPN is only $39.99 for 1 Year & no difference to those $80 - $100+ VPNs
2) This VPN is Torrent Download friendly has a guide online & even live tech support chat for additional security configuration, but the app is all you need.
3) Speeds are now on par with your internet subscription, I pay for 100mb service & I usually get between 85mb & 100mb speeds now Through the VPN, this was not the case 3 years ago so their system has received a major upgrade

Cons

none any more, about 3 years ago I was getting between 30 and 50mb connection speeds through the VPN out of my 100mb internet service plan, last year I was getting about 75mb out of the 100mb and this year it's as close to my actual speed as I've ever seen, practical the full 100mb, interesting thing I did notice was that even when my speeds were slower 3 years ago everything seemed to load faster, it's just a more efficient connection

Summary

you can't beat this VPN, don't be fooled by those high priced VPNs pitching you can't put a price on you're privacy and cashing in on your fears and charging you as much as triple, interesting little story, I do or more accurately did a lot of Torrent downloads, now a days there's this free streaming app called Kodi but that's separate story, I literally went to many VPNs web sites and chatted with the agent, I asked specifically do they keep logs most said no and asked a worse case scenario question about someone downloading copyrighted material and getting subpoenaed for a lawsuit for the infringement by the Movie or Music industry, and at that time a lot of the companies would either say we don't allow Torrent Downloading or only upon receiving a court order would we be forced to release your IP address, so many did keep records/logs a few didn't, many costing over $100 per year then I chatted with this VPN it was a clear cut we don't keep logs and we encourage Torrent downloading it's a technology that can be used for many things, agent wrote if we received a subpoena to release your IP our legal team would advise them that there are no logs, I chatted on 3 different days and got the same non compromising direct answer

"Zero phone support"

October 25, 2016  |  By underdog122

 |  Version: Private Internet Access 46

Pros

Received refund immediately

Cons

Had problems installing and running software, was told there was no phone support and sent an unhelpful youtube tutorial link. Tech support via e-mail only, response time OK but wanted immediate help.

Summary

In this day & age for a service like this to be competitive, phone support must be available. Any program can come with a technical glitch or two, and this one probably runs fine once the glitches are ironed out, but if I can't get a human being on the phone it's a non-starter.
