WorldVPN.net is a VPN service provider that offers VPN services (PPTP and OpenVPN) via 100+ server locations in more than 45+ countries. They offer a variety of VPN packages : block, unlimited, dedicated and shared. They are based out of Australia and has been in business since 2008. They are a barebones service in the sense that their website and general online presence seems neglected but their service does indeed work .
WorldVPN.net Speed Test
On our Win XP SP/3 test machine we had no trouble connecting via PPTP. We did manage to test 2 U.S., 1 Russian, and 1 Hong Kong server and while our page loads did suffer a little it was within normal ranges. As with all VPN’s, speed slowdowns are par for the course.

WorldVPN.net vs. The Competition
WorldVPN’s service which seems to compete on the number of countries available would be best compared to IAPS Security Service. In this comparison IAPS would be the clear winner as IAPS is only 20 short of covering every country in the world.
As we mentioned before the service runs from the native client in your OS so errors encountered would presumably easily resolved or at least diagnosed in a standard manner. In our brief test we encountered no errors.
Conclusion On WorldVPN.net
While WorldVPN.net isn’t a bad VPN provider we find them hard to categorize. If they are competing solely on the number of countriesthen they do very well and if you compare them in terms of ease of use or pricing we would instead recommend HideMyAss or ExpressVPN. So while we might recommended other providers as a first choice WorldVPN appears to not be a bad choice.
