A Quick  Overview about proXPN

The Dutch VPN provider proXPN is relatively a new provider in VPN industry. In proXPN VPN review, we will scrutinize each and every features and service offerings of proXPN to give our readers the most impartial proXPN review.

proXPN Pricing Plans – Affordability vs. Privacy

proXPN VPN keeps its pricing model simple as possible. The package plans are expertly segregated into basic and premium plans, where subscribers can choose premium plan at $6.25 per month. The premium plan offers full range of features including PPTP protocol, un throttled bandwidth, broad range of server locations and individual client for smartphones. Also, after examining proXPN plans in proXPN VPN review, we discovered that their premium subscription is watered-down into 3 plans, as shown below:

But, happily the provider doesn’t keep any discrimination among speed, bandwidth, encryption protocols, smartphone support and number of servers in any of the premium plans. However, the only difference among proXPN premium plans is the time period. Also, in proXPN VPN review, I found that annual plan can save up to $44.76 per year if compared to tri-monthly plan.

proXPN Payment Modes

At the moment, proXPN offers several payment options including Visa, MasterCard and PayPal. Subscribers can choose to pay for proXPN with one of the supported payment methods. However, lack of bitcoin acceptance is quite disappointing for netizens who want to pay anonymously.

Generally, subscribers look for a provider that accepts anonymous payments modes i.e. bitcoin, QuarkCoin, Novacoin or other cryptocurrencies. In proXPN VPN review, I consider it a huge drawback for proXPN.

Server Locations of proXPN

A wide range of server locations is a hall mark of world class VPN service. Although, proXPN is a newbie in VPN industry, but still it doesn’t compromise a bit when it comes to global coverage of servers. We examined the service in proXPN VPN review, and discovered that most of the proXPN servers are located in North America and Europe. So, netizens can easily access leading and popular entertainment services. Below is a list of locations offered by proXPN at this time, have a look at it:

  • The United States
  • Canada
  • Netherlands
  • Sweden
  • United Kingdom
  • Romania
  • Australia
  • Frankfurt
  • Singapore
  • Hong Kong
  • Iceland
  • Japan
  • France

Interestingly, proXPN keeps on expanding its servers reach and keeps the subscribers thrilled. While examining server locations of service in our proXPN review, I found their servers are distributed across prime cities including Dallas, Los Angeles, Seattle, New York City, Miami, Chicago, Toronto, London, Amsterdam, Singapore, Stockholm, Bucharest, Sydney, Frankfurt, San Jose, Tokyo and Paris.

 

proXPN Servers Performance

To assess proXPN service claims, we decided to test their servers, considering downloading, streaming, unblocking and exploring media. All tests were performed on an intentionally throttled internet connection. Here’s what we revealed after conducting speed tests:

As soon as we finished VPN speed tests for proXPN review, we were surprised with its stunning performance. Initially, our ping and download speed dropped slightly with a significant raise in upload speed. Fortunately, we accessed numerous geo-blocked sites including HBO Now, Fox Go, Seven Network and more sites hassle-free. However, while streaming videos, we experienced minor buffering at first, but then it worked seamless.

Considering the unblocking ability of VPN in our proXPN review, I consider their service as an instant unblocker rather than a robust online protection solution.

 

proXPN Customer Support

proXPN maintains a well-organized customer support system. Subscribers can get assistance through helpline, Twitter and email system. We have closely examined support modes of VPN in our proXPN review and discovered that ticket support system is available only for premium users. That said, basic users can seek support through official email address of proXPN customer support.

To evaluate their customer support for proXPN review, we dropped off a query on proXPN official email address, but shockingly received no response till next day. Here’s a screenshot of our query to provider:

Also, subscribers can refer to setup guides available in knowledgebase section and seek immediate assistance for installation and billing issues.

 

Encryption & Tunneling Protocols offered by proXPN

A VPN provider is mainly assessed on types of protocols it offers. When it comes to proXPN, it keeps netizens’ privacy at prime priority by offering 2408-bit encryption keys with 512-bit encryption tunnel. Also, proXPN protects netizens against hackers, snoopers, intruders and privacy invaders. However, proXPN doesn’t offer PPTP protocol, restricting netizens from streaming media at fast speed.

Also, while creating proXPN VPN review, I discovered no L2TP/IPSec protocol support. This means users can’t download P2P files and torrents anonymously with proXPN.

 

Privacy & Logging Policy – Is proXPN Safe to Use?

When it comes to privacy and data logging policy, proXPN takes an edge over other VPN providers. proXPN keeps subscribers digital identity discreet and secret with a transparent zero activity logging policy.

The interface is equipped with handy features, where users can select from a list of locations, tunneling protocols (PPTP for premium users only) and an option to manually connect. Also, subscribers can look into log tab to view detailed information about their session. Fairly, we rate proXPN window client as an average app, due to less appealing interface and absence of features like internet kill switch, DNS leak protection and WebRTC leak protection.

proXPN for Linux – Secure Your Browsing & Online Activities

Linux users can take advantage of proXPN Linux support and secure their online activities. The proXPN Linux keeps netizens’ privacy under impregnable protection, protecting them against hackers, intruders and every cyber threats. However, a downside of proXPN Linux is that it works through OpenVPN and  lacks an individual client. However, we expect proXPN to release in-house client for Linux OS to secure worldwide Linux users.

The Android App of proXPN is easy to use, but has received mixed gestures from subscribers. Apparently, the Android app interface is similar to many other VPN services in market. Subscribers can use the proXPN android app to access Sling TV, Fox Go, HBO Now and other geo-blocked services. However, users face issues when they try to use proXPN in country different from where they originally subscribed to proXPN.
