SwitchVPN is a VPN provider that boasts a robust networking capability and use of advanced networking technology to ensure that their users have seamless access to information and data online, without breach of their privacy.
It offers access to blocked sites on certain servers, and unlimited bandwidth, among other advantages. The personal VPN provider has 80 servers spread across 31 countries giving it the ability to offer online anonymity to its clients. The pricing of its products is based on the level of privacy required. The most secure type offered enables you to bounce off servers in different countries, making you very hard to identify, since the IPs are from different countries; though is the most expensive package.
An important feature of SwitchVPN is that it has a kill switch. The kill switch ensures that in the case of SwitchVPN failing, the user is not exposed; instead it drops the internet connection entirely.
SwitchVPN allows you to choose the server of your choice, thereby giving you the full freedom of browsing the internet via your selected encryption filter. With SwitchVPN, you can also select your VPN connection. It provides you with the option of PPTP, OpenVPN and L2TP. All of this guarantees users more than 99%uptime on any of its server at any given time.
All in all, SwitchVPN proxy is not as user-friendly as other proxy sites; this is mainly because it is not supported by a reliable customer support facility. While it does offer more than a dozen server locations, it fails to provide a satisfactory number of IP addresses. Another issue is that if the IP addresses are already used too much then there is a higher chance of Google blocking them. The proxy avoids this problem by rotating its IP address.
