VPNTraffic is headquartered in the US. The service offers very low-cost VPN subscriptions. The network is restricted to PPTP and L2TP, but the prices might make VPNTraffic ideal for those on a budget.

Privacy & Anonymity
Torrenting is allowed on VPNTraffic.
Customer support can be reached via an email form on VPNTraffic’s website. They promise a reply within twelve hours. There’s also a troubleshooting page you can use to try to fix your own problems.
VPNTraffic has a client for Windows. It’s very small; really nothing more than a login window that allows you to select a protocol and a server. It’s about as simple as a VPN client can get.
The client worked fine in testing, though it doesn’t give much feedback about the connection.
Windows, Mac OSX, Android, IPhone, etc.
Mac OSX, Android, iPhone and router instructions are included on the VPNTraffic site. Windows users can connect manually or use the client.
VPNTraffic Baseline Speedtest
We tested VPNTraffic using a server in Albuquerque over a 50Mbps/5Mbps connection. We connected to a server in Phoenix. VPNTraffic numbers its US servers, so you’ll have to connect manually and check your IP to choose the best location.
The speed was good over the connection, giving us nearly 20Mbps speed, a quick ping and good upload.
IPCheck and DNSLeak
Our IP and DNS did not leak.
- Low price
- Expansive server network
The pricing is the real selling point here.
Areas for Improvement
This is a discount service and, in some ways, that shows. The customer service options are very limited and a guaranteed twelve-hour response time isn’t really promising much. The protocols are the barebones options. L2TP isn’t supported on many VPNTraffic servers. PPTP, of course, isn’t secure enough for any critical usage.
This service is inexpensive, but the low price point might lead you astray. Our preferred providers, for instance, offer a much more feature-rich service for usually a couple of dollars more per month than VPNTraffic. While this service is cheap, the limited protocols and rather wanting website give it some significant disadvantages. Final analysis: If you’re pretty certain you won’t need customers support, you’re fine with only PPTP and L2TP, and you’re not evil this service might do.
