FlyVPN is certainly not new on the scene, having been around since 2007, but it continues to be one of the highest rated VPNs for accessing US servers, alongside top vendors like IPVanish and ExpressVPN.
We were pleased to find that FlyVPN can unblock Netflix on its US servers. You can even stream Netflix is you’re using FlyVPN’s free plan.
With an estimated ping rate of around 200 in China, FlyVPN is certainly delivering, although it does so at a cost. Nevertheless, you can always opt for the free plan which, although limited, will give you access to some of FlyVPN’s servers three times a day for a period of 20 minutes per session. An hour a day doesn’t go far if you’re streaming from Netflix but it’s fine if you just want some protection while you’re doing your online banking.
This isn’t really what we want to hear from a VPN, especially not one that, for its paid packages, charges a fairly hefty fee. At least they offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, but make sure you read between the lines before signing up as this is only applicable if you make payment via PayPal or AliPay. Besides, it seems a little redundant if you can try out the service for free three times a day anyway!
Some of the aspects of FlyVPN that do impress include their cross-platform compatibility and the provision of three different protocols (PPTP, L2TP+IPsec and OpenVPN) all of which are encrypted to a high level. FlyVPN is also a bit more out there than some of its peers in terms of providing support in several different languages, including Chinese, Russian, Korean and, of course, English.
Well, does it offer the same feature-rich packages as premium providers? We don’t think so. If you don’t want to pay a high price, you might decide to opt for the free version, but you’ll pay with low security and data logging. For better value for money, unlimited high-speed Netflix, plus all the added security benefits, you’re better off with ExpressVPN.
