Which VPN is better?

Technical writer, ex-robot manual creator gone privacy enthusiast/VPN expert
An interesting parallel can be drawn between ExpressVPN and Unblock-Us. Both offer data security and privacy protection since neither of them monitors user activity while you are logged in. Unblock-Us provides a one-week free trial service in comparison with ExpressVPN’s 30-day money-back guarantee option. In addition, Unblock-Us offers a relatively cheaper yearly billing plan. When it comes to speed, ExpressVPN is among the fastest VPNs in the world. On the other hand, Unblock-Us has done reasonably well on speed tests as well. So far, Unblock-US is working with Netflix although mobile devices still do not manage to evade the Netflix ban, so you would need to say goodbye to streaming Netflix content via mobile apps. ExpressVPN, on the other hand, works well with the Netflix iOS and Android apps and generally offers stable and fast streaming.

Their special feature, “VPN Speed Test,” lets users check how fast their VPN server is working so that they can chop and change the location that is fastest for them. They also have a plethora of servers - 1000+ in 145 locations across 94 countrie

Really knowledgeable techical staff The best thing about this app is their support team. After I installed the app I was having trouble watching Netflix and Jack was able to find a fix for me in a few minutes. Really, really glad this app still works. Worth it for the amazing service.

Overrated vpn service Really overrated and overpriced vpn service. The speed are really poor especially with US servers. The only thing customer service offers is to get refunded instead of trying to solve your problem. They should really pay more attention to speeds as rated very good and sometimes take a look to chats what customer guys are typing

Unblock-us.com's aim is to deliver a good VPN service for the lowest reasonable price. Their sales tactic is simple and clear; they just give your computer a new IP address. (This is different from more traditional vendors like NordVPN or ExpressVPN that connect your computers to dif

Does not work for Netflix or Google Or probably anything else... I just spent a month in paris and all the streaming companies knew my actual ip address. I'm a network engineer and carefully set it up and tested it. Kind of pointless for me. At least the experiment only cost me $5.

 The Bottom Line

Even though Unblock-Us provides pretty amazing price/quality ratio, one of the greatest advantages that ExpressVPN offers and Unblock-Us doesn't, is the ability to unblock Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant video and other US streaming channels in China. Both VPNs come with a significant number of benefits, and although they are both highly recommendable, we would have to place ExpressVPN first due to its undoubted reputation as one of the best VPNs available. This reputation comes from speed, reliability, excellent live support service and justifies the number of satisfied users. More Info
