Torguard is not affiliated with TOR. The “tor” in their name is short for “torrent” and this provider does offer P2P over their service. They have quite a few value-added products, as well, for users who want a more comprehensive privacy solution.

Speed Test

baselinewdcbaseline test

with torguardwith Torguard VPN working 

Torguard really didn’t affect our download speed to any noticeable degree. The connection tested was a 50mbps/5mpbs DSL from Albuquerque to Washington DC. As you can see from the comparison, both the upload and download speeds were very fast through the Torguard service.

IP Check and DNSLeak

The IP and DNSLeak checks both passed with Torguard.

A little more intricacy on the client would be nice for power users, but it’s a good design overall.

Conclusion

Torguard lives up to its name. The company offers a great privacy policy, fast speeds and plenty of servers and nations to choose from. There’s little lacking in this service and, though it might not offer quite as sophisticated a VPN client as some other providers, it’s more than competitive in terms of the other features that can be bundled with the VPN.

    While I’m sure this a useful product when it works, it doesn’t seem to be very mac supportive, though it claims to be. I purchased their “Anonymous Torrent Proxy” service and I had to submit 2 tickets in the first 4 days of service. And while customer service is very quick to respond via tickets (not via the claimed “24/7” live support since I got no response twice), it seems like the mac support is in super beta testing. Meaning TorGuard is trying to build mac compatibility as Mac users submit their issues. I was twice given different torrent clients to “try”. One of them being Deluge, which, has a VERY involved installation process and then would not launch. I’m sure this would be a great product if the Mac support was there and when it is perhaps I’ll come back. But it just doesn’t seem to be worth it to do all this troubleshooting for them after purchasing when I should have been made aware of the hoop-jumping beforehand.

    Haven’t tried their proxy service yet, but must say I’m very pleased with the VPN. Just signed up and I’m getting great speeds on all their servers. Setup was also surprisingly easy, I didn’t need to install anything to use openvpn. They have a portable version that doesn’t mess with your registry – YESSS! Facebook at work again 😛

    Excellent VPN provider!!! I just got 50% off via slickdeals and would recommend this service to anyone. Fast speeds on all the servers I have tried so far, and install was refreshingly EASY.

    Haven’t tried support yet as I haven’t needed them but I see chat online during the day so that is nice.
