Speed & Reliability
As the name suggests speed is a selling point with ExpressVPN. It has developed a solid reputation within the industry and amongst its many happy customers. ExpressVPN has positive writeups from some heavy hitters that include in-depth technical explanations and details, but what it comes down to for most of us is, "does it do what it states on the tin", meaning, does it do what you expect. For most we want the VPN to work and our interest basically stops there. ExpressVPN does exactly this. It works, and it works well.
As with all the major VPN provider, security is strong and powerful encryption is used.ExpressVPN encrypts your traffic so that it can’t be read by third parties such as your internet service provider or your local Wi-Fi operator.
ExpressVPN use AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with 256-bit keys — also known as AES-256. This is the same encryption standard adopted by the U.S. government and used by security experts worldwide to protect classified information.
ExpressVPN offers support via live chat, 24/7. So wherever you are located and whatever time of day help is on hand.
Like most providers, ExpressVPN has 3 plans. The most popular and best value is $8.32 on a 12 month plan at the time of writing. Given their reputation for delivering a good service, then this is a small price to pay for the reassurance that you are being protected whilst online.
You will have no trouble here, ExpressVPN respond quickly should a site become blocked. The number of servers at their disposal must help. Unblocked availability to all sites including BBC iPlayer, Netflix, Hula.
