BlackVPNis headquartered in Hong Kong, a nice selling point for those who want to get their VPN service outside of the US. The company has been around since 2008.

BlackPVPN has an easy to use service that should be suitable for most VPN users, but their speed was lackluster in testing.

Privacy and Anonymity

BlackVPN has very good privacy policies. First and foremost, they don’t log your IP. They only log when you connected, disconnected and how much data you downloaded.

The privacy servers have fewer IP addressesthan the other BlackVPN servers. Users sometimes have to share IPs. This prevents the company from logging user activity at a specific IP, but they will shut down access to a site in the event of hacking.

Privacy locations are the only ones authorized for torrent use.

Torrent Policy

The company does not allow any P2P on US, UK or Singapore servers, due to DMCA concerns. Users will be forwarded any DMCA notices that they generate.

Product Testing

BlackVPN uses the Viscosity client. You can also hook up to their servers manually by making a new connection in Windows.

The Viscosity client provides a nice interface with all the controls you need.

Speed Test

With VPN Speedtest

We tested over a manually-configured L2TP connection after having issues with the Viscosity client over this service.

The speed tests were not impressive. With the L2TP connection live, we were at less than a tenth of our baseline speed.

IP Check and DNSLeak

Our IP was effectively changed but DNS did leak over this service.

What We Liked

The privacy package is very well designed. It offers some jurisdictional layering in a bundle that’s easy to understand and use.

If you want TV access, the package for that is also well thought out.
Being able to buy VPN routers through a company is always a good option.

Areas for Improvement

The speed was not impressive with this service.

Conclusion

BlackVPN is good, but really doesn’t stand out in any particular regard. Their pricing is attractive, but not super competitive. The restrictions on P2P to specific servers make sense, but make the service a bit less flexible than some others in that regard.
