Ivacy VPN Review
Ivacy is one of the oldest players in the market(since 2006!) and has never stopped growing ever since. Even if its been located in not a favorable country for VPNs(Singapore), it maintains all the high standards – and above – of every aspect you should look in any VPN provider! Lets deep inside our Ivacy VPN review !
We took apart every Ivacys’ app aspect to make sure we didn’t miss anything in our review, so keep reading to see if Ivacy is the right VPN for you!
We used a 100 Mbit server located in Netherlands, and during our testing we found the average download speed to be between ~87 Mbit Upload speed was surprisingly abit better, from low 45 Mbit up to 90 Mbit when testing a SWE server. Based on its price as well, which is the cheapest among all VPN providers(as low as 0.99$ per month), its a superb value for money!
Overall: We tried torrents, we tried to stream Netflix, we tried ftp. For the average user, its almost certain you will nearly max out your internet connection, with zero buffering. For the more expert ones, faster VPNs exist BUT they do cost 2 or even 3 times what Ivacy does!
The packages that IVACY offer are starting from as low as 0.99$mo when paying 5 years in advance, which makes it the cheapest one out there!
Ivacy offers 24/7 support via live chat,and email. Also it has a huge FAQ database, full with guides for any possible problem you may encounter.
Ivacy is a great choice for torrent users that want fast, secure, unblockable torrent downloads.
