SwitchVPN is a VPN service provider that is based in the United States. SwitchVPN has servers located in 32 countries (the Netherlands, Germany, Japan, Brazil, Australia, Hong Kong and more). The company also offers unlimited server switching as well as unrestricted bandwidth and speed. While SwitchVPN does not offer that many server locations, the speed was high. Connecting to a specific server location was quick and barely took a minute and the connection in general was stable and reliable. Good server speed is probably due to high-speed Gigabit servers that are available to SwitchVPN’s users. However, torrenting is only allowed through Dutch servers. SwitchVPN also offers some neat features like a killswitch, port-forwarding and auto reconnect.
SwitchVPN supports Windows, Mac, Linux, Android as well as iOS operating systems. The setup and the installation process is quick and simple and only takes a few moments to install it on any of your devices. What is more, 5 simultaneous connections are offered. This means that you can get all of your devices covered and protect them with SwitchVPN.
Only two pricing plans are available to users: a 1 month plan ($9.95) and a 1 year plan ($6.66/month). The pricing is quite expensive when compared to some other providers and what they might offer. Moreover, there is no 3 or 6 months plan, so users either have to pay for a pricey 1 month plan or commit to a 12 months plans. The good news is that a free trial is available for users who might want to try out SwitchVPN before buying it, but you have to enter your credentials to get it. The company maintains a 30-days money back guarantee and you can easily ask for a refund with no questions asked. The available payment methods include Visa and MasterCard credit cards, PayPal and BitCoin.
Customer support is available 24x7x365. The support options include email, live chat, a FAQ section, setup guides and troubleshooting. The FAQ section is not that extensive, but covers all of the basic questions a VPN user might have. The setup guides are easy to understand, but troubleshooting lacks more articles about the errors a user might run into.
