ExpressVPN Review

ExpressVPN can be configured for just about any device. The company offers client software for Linux, macOS, and Windows. There are also apps for Android and iOS devices. There are three pricing tiers: $12.95 billed each month, $59.95 billed every six months, and $99.95 billed annually. Like most services, the only difference is for how long you commit. There is no free trial, but there is a 30-day money back guarantee. Speed is an issue, but good servers for privacy are available.

What we like

  • Diverse geographic distribution of servers
  • Allows P2P and BitTorrent
  • Simple interface
  • Supports OpenVPN protocol

What we don't like

  • Expensive $$$$
  • Fewer than average simultaneous connections allowed
  • No ad-blocking or advanced features
  • Lackluster speed scores

Speed

ExpressVPN claims to be the world’s fastest VPN, but that is not the case. ExpressVPN increased latency by 15.1 percent, which is more than some other VPN services. It also reduced download performance by 19.3 percent, and slowed uploads by 20 percent.

Australia Brazil China France Germany Mexico United Kingdom USA
Download (Mbps) 55.5 15.5 67.12 58.7 10.4 28.7 77.6 58.9
Upload (Mbps) 27.4 6.77 36.5 34.1 10.54 9.76 70.1 25.4

Privacy

ExpressVPN squeezes in a few advanced features, like a Kill Switch that prevents apps from connecting to the Internet if the VPN is disconnected. ExpressVPN goes further than most with the additional option to allow communication with local network devices—such as printers and other computers—when the VPN is disconnected. ExpressVPN also chooses the protocol that will deliver the best speed and performance by default. ExpressVPN also offers its own DNS service. Which is handy if a clever attacker monitors DNS requests to try and track you across the web.


Servers

ExpressVPN has over 1,000 servers in 145 locations, covering some 94 countries. The geographic distribution of ExpressVPN's servers cover Africa, Asia, Central America, Europe, the Middle East, North America, and South America. However, they also include China, Russia, and Turkey, three countries that have notably repressive control over the internet. ExpressVPN offers a good range of servers and locations, but some competitors do even more.
