Which VPN is better?

Two popular VPN service providers going great guns in the market are NordVPN and BTGuard VPN. Both have great features like no logging, so that there is no possibility of your web activities being traced. Other common features include payment options like Bitcoin and Paypal, no traffic restrictions with unlimited bandwidth, multiple locations, fairly easy set-up and good encryption. While BTGuard offers access to high-speed entertainment and movie content via Torrents, NordVPN offers the latest movies and entertainment via Netflix at blazing speeds. While in terms of price, BTGuard VPN is definitely the cheaper option, the area where Nord really shines is the additional built-in features it offers its users. In terms of compatibility, both are even, as they both support multiple devices and work on a variety of platforms. BTGuard does not have dedicated servers, something that Nord offers its users. While BTGuard offers decent speeds (it tends to dip at times), Nord offers consistently high speeds.






 The Bottom Line

So while both Nord and BTGuard are great VPN platforms to use for gaining access to otherwise inaccessible websites across the world, Nord is the clear winner. Some of the areas where Nord comes out ahead are: 24/7 live customer service (something which BTguard lacks) and a kill switch that is extremely handy when surfing websites that could trace your IP address in case the connection is dropped. Btguard unfortunately lacks in this crucial bit of security. Nord also offers a 30 day money back guarantee, something which BTguard does not offer. They also do not have a trial period. Overall NordVPN comes out way ahead of BTGuard in terms of offering better features and value for money.
