GooseVPN overview

GooseVPN is a VPN service provider that is located in the Netherlands. GooseVPN offers over 30 server locations and there is a server list of all of the now available servers. Moreover, servers that are specifically dedicated to streaming or the ones that allow P2P/Torrenting activities are marked with a certain sign for users. Goose offers fast connection speed and the connections in general are stable as well as reliable. Also, this VPN service provider is very easy to install and use, as it only takes a few click to get the software up and running.

GooseVPN supports Windows, Mac as well as iOS and Android operating systems. Moreover, Goose VPN service provider can be installed on most routers and even on Linux, though only manually. Goose offers unlimited simultaneous connections with all of its subscription plans, so all of the user devices can be covered. However, only by having an account and connecting to the client area can users access different manuals, guides and set-ups.

Two security protocols are supported by this VPN service: OpenVPN and IKEv2. Both of these protocols use 256-bit encryption. IKEv2 is considered to be the best for mobile users as it is fast and offers good security. While a variety of protocols available would be neat, OpenVPN is the strongest and the most secure VPN protocol out there and is the best option to use. While GooseVPN does have a no-logs policy and does not store user Internet activity or connection logs, it does gather data about the bandwidth used.

There are two pricing pricing plans available: Unlimited Goose subscription is $14.53/month and an annual subscription is $5.58/month. There is also a third plan - 50GB Goose ($3.35/month). All of the pricing plans allow unlimited simultaneous connections, P2P activity and a no-logs policy. Also, for a small fee you can get an addon which offers an antivirus, antimalware, antiphishing and Firewall protection. All of the pricing plans offer unlimited data, however, if you have the 50 GB subscription plan, you might need to buy additional data - packages of additional traffic start from 5 GB to 50 GB of traffic. The available payment methods include all major credit cards (Visa, American Express, Mastercard) as well as PayPal, BitCoin and a few other payment options. GooseVPN service provider has a 30-day money back guarantee and the refund is said to be processed within 48 hours.

Customer support works 24x7x365 and includes a live chat, a contact form, an email and a FAQ section. Moreover, you can leave your questions or inquiries on Goose’s Facebook or Twitter profiles. The FAQ section answers all of the most basic user questions related to payment, service, VPN usage and more. There are also set-up guides and manuals, but they are only accessible to the already registered users and only through the client area.

GooseVPN is a good VPN service provider that does lot of things right: it offers strong encryption with OpenVPN protocol, it has a variety of support options with great live chat and fast response time. On the other hand, GooseVPN lacks advanced features, there could be more server locations available and the pricing plans could be more flexible, like include a 3 month or 6 month plan options.
