With is excellent reliability and easy to use software, BolehVPN could just be the product that you are looking for. And that it does it at a reasonable price is another reason to sign up. It’s also capable of unblocking Netflix, though its streaming speed and quality can’t compare to a premium service like NordVPN.
The VPN market place is very crowded and searching for your best option can be quite confusing and even a little daunting. So probably the best thing to do is to decide on what you need a VPN to do for you and then find the one that best meets those needs.
The need to use a VPN usually breaks down into two categories. The first is security and privacy. This means that you want to be anonymous on the Internet, or as anonymous as you possibly can be. You want to be confident that your computer and Internet activity are not being watched or tracked by unknown third parties, whether they be governmental, commercial or something more unsavoury. For this part, BolehVPN promises you complete security and peace of mind, whether your needs are as simple as hiding you Internet history to more ‘military grade’ usage of the Internet. I did not delve deeper into what that actually meant! Needless to say, what Boleh, like many others offer, or claim to offer, is a safe, secure and private service and is right up there with some of the best providers around, including the likes of NordVPN, ExpressVPN and Vyrpvpn. For example, Boleh state clearly that they do not keep logs of your activities. What this means, in theory, is that should a legal body in one country demand, and even gain the right to, access to their servers and databases, your activities will not show up on any of their records. You will still be anonymous. Great!
The second use of a VPN is much more straightforward. A VPN can allow you access to video streaming and television services that are country restricted. So if you live abroad or are on holiday and still want access to your favourite TVs shows then a VPN will do the trick. This is one of the main reasons someone will want to use a VPN and basic products like Tunnelbear are usually sufficient. It is simple to install and run and rarely lets you down. But then, I discovered BolehVPN and once I got over some basic issues (which I will discuss in a bit), I fell in love with what they could do for me. Access was so much quicker and streaming just felt so much faster. I wasn’t worried that my picture could freeze at any moment. Using Boleh also didn’t significantly slow down my laptop, as many other VPN software services are prone to do. Ultimately, it did what I needed, quickly, easily and seamlessly. But where Boleh did let me down was when trying to download torrents. I tried a few different configurations, but none of them gave me anywhere near the download speed that I achieve when not using a VPN at all. This may not be an issue for you, but if it is, then I would suggest using the 7-day trial and spend some time playing around with the settings to see what works best for you.
Using its proprietary ‘xCloak’ software, BolehVPN provides a smooth and service that gave me access to all the UK television stations that I have access to, including both free to view and paid for access. That meant that I could quite happily switch from watching the BBC one minute to logging on and using my subscription for SKY without any problems. While it does have a dedicated server to unblock Netflix, traffic congestion could cause extremely slow load-times. If you want to stream seamlessly, I recommend using a premium provider like NordVPN over Bohleh.
It also provides a strong and secure level of privacy for all your Internet usage and identity protection. For me, I want simplicity and that is what Boleh gave me. What I did notice was that it did not present a great many countries of origin from which you show from, but it did allow you to choose from some of the main countries in the market, the USA & Canada, the UK, Germany and Japan among others.
