Reliability & Support 4.0 / 5.0

EarthVPN offers 24/7/365 support via email and support tickets, though responses take a few hours (just over 8 hours to respond to our ticket), they also provide a FAQ section. The connection never dropped during testing, and speeds were generally good – with SSTP providing a much faster connection.

The Bottom Line
Affordability comes with costs, with this company your security won't be one of them

EarthVPN is one of the cheapest options when it comes to choosing a VPN provider. This for a service which offers 168 server locations in 32 countries, with a range of encryption options and unlimited bandwidth and P2P sharing make EarthVPN a good choice. They also provide good uptime statisics and don"t record any user logs at all. However, this is not the fastest service that we have tested, and help queries can sometimes take a while to be addressed. Some additional features, such as a static IP address, or mobile VPN also incur an additional charge. EarthVPN remains a good all-rounder, and a service to be considered.

    Slow Servers for Australia

    Joined Earth VPN about four years ago, and set up my Tomato USB Router to work with the service. Support was fantastic, they talked me through the Router set-up - it took a while but worked a treat. In the last six months though speeds across multiple P2P and basic servers had become almost unbearable. 0.1Mbs was our connection speed. Our local connection speed is 48Mbs. Tried multiple servers. No change. Finally after years with Earth VPN, we've moved to NordVPN. Speeds are now at 40Mbs and we're as secure as ever.

      Don't pay for it, it wont give you a refund

      As noted by above reviewers, I too signed up for this VPN service. After following the instructions but having no luck, I opened a support ticket. Several days later, I got an email saying the ticket was being closed as I hadn’t responded! There was nothing to respond to!! Tried another support ticket with same result. Third ticket I opened was to cancel the service.
