Areas for Improvement
While 12VPX doesn’t make any claims on unblocking streaming sites, we tested them out to see if we’d be able to access some of the popular ones. Unfortunately, they were unable to give access to US Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney+. This could be something that 12VPX could work on since a lot of users are getting VPN to access these popular streaming sites.
Other areas for improvement include their kill switch that only works with OpenVPN and some users find their pricing a bit expensive for the limited network that 12VPX has.
As a HongKong-based VPN service, 12VPX is an especially good choice for users in China. It gets the job done from geo-blocking and other restrictions. However, 12VPX is also a decent choice for any user anywhere in the world. Formerly, 12VPX has a very limited network of servers, but in recent years they’ve widened their network, but some users still find their pricing a little expensive when compared to other VPN services that have the same pricing but a wider network and better features. Despite some pricing concerns, we still consider this product a good piece of software. It is equipped with a lot of useful features and has a high rate of connectivity.
