Which VPN is better?

Both PureVPN and Astrill are 2 of the top VPNs in the market currently. However, of the 2 service providers, one clearly tops the other one by a few features that are definitely praiseworthy and required for a flawless service. Although both providers help in keeping the user information confidential, PureVPN actually provides access to more IP addresses than is possible with Astrill. Both VPNs can be used on any device and operating system, even Linux. Additionally, they can access over 750 servers throughout many countries across the globe. As far as the packages go, both are fairly priced and easy on the pockets. Speed is excellent for both; however, it’s also where Astrill beats PureVPN by a hefty margin. Hence, as far as accessing Netflix is concerned with Astrill, one wouldn’t have any trouble in running it smoothly. One unique feature on PureVPN goes by the name of Split tunneling, which allows users to maintain two addresses while accessing websites of two different countries on one device. So, whether you are accessing torrents or a bank website in your country, or both at the same time, PureVPN will take care of it for you.






 The Bottom Line

When compared with Astrill, PureVPN clearly wins when it comes to providing better services and access. With more than 170 countries in its arsenal, it makes accessing most networks from China a child’s play. The encryption is much better in comparison and offers much tighter security. The customer service of PureVPN is also fantastic in comparison. Another setback for Astrill is the fact that it gives trouble to users when they try to use it as a hotspot while on the move. The company claims that it is indeed possible with Astrill’s software, but this has not proved useful so far.
