Which VPN is better?

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.

Many VPNs claim to be the fastest, but trust us when we say ExpressVPN is telling the truth. It’s our top pick for streaming movies and TV shows with their unlimited bandwidth and more than 1,000 servers in over 100 locations. Besides for having great encryption and security, ExpressVPN does not log any traffic data or DNS queries, allows P2P on all of their servers (a rarity among VPNs), has

What have you got to lose? Yeah, the price is a bit high but if you 're not satisfied you can get a full refund in the first month. Works with Netflix, HBO and Hulu. Great for at home but even better for those who are abroad...!

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

Works for netflix Its been working fine for me for last 3 months for netflix. I have been viewing netflix from India and its working flawlessly without any doubt. Sometimes netflix does kick you out but clearing cookies and trying again sorts it out.

Use to work, doesn't anymore I use to love Unblock-Us as their service was fantastic back in the day. However it no longer works and it does not feel that they are even attempting to keep us. It no longer supports Netflix. It use to support Hulu, but recently it is harder to get through. If I do, it only works for one episode and then kicks me out. I have a one year contract that is now fairly useless and I am swapping to a new VPN provider.

 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
