Easy Hide IP Baseline Speedtest

With VPN Speedtestphx
The speeds on this provider were slow. We connected to a server in Dallas from Albuquerque and another in Phoenix. Our speed stayed just shy of 10Mbps on both tests, down from over 40Mbps on our baseline test. The site doesn’t specify whether this is a limitation on the trial account, but the speed was lacking.
IPCheck and DNSLeak
Our IP and DNS addresses were both hidden by the service.
- PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Classic (selective) VPN option
The client Easy Hide IP provides is very good. Connecting was smooth and selecting a server is easy.
Areas for Improvement
The speed was lacking. The logging policy makes this company less competitive with other providers than it could be. Allowing a single connection per account also reduces the value of the service.
Easy Hide IP is a professional-looking service in every regard. Where speed was concerned, however, it seemed to be lacking. The company makes getting a trial easy, which is a plus. The logging policy and jurisdiction make this service undesirable for P2P users.
