IPVanish and PIA are 2 VPNs with a lot going for them. Both are completely log-less, though IPVanish runs out of the British Virgin Islands, giving them a slight edge over PIA, which runs out of the US and is thus subject to the stricter laws therein. PIA has very customizable security options such as optional DNS leak protection and adjustable encryption strength, but IPVanish includes NAT firewall with every subscription, which is a very strong layer of added security. IPVanish also has a plethora of countries to choose from, second only to HideMyAss, as well as a free proxy. PIA does stand out in the area of customer service, providing a 24/7 live chat option, whereas IPVanish has a strong knowledge base, but has no live chat option, a big minus in our opinion. Of great importance is IPVanish’s speeds, which are second-to-none. IPvanish controls their own tier-1 network backbone, which basically means your speed is only limited by the users’ normal bandwidth connection, not by any limit on IPVanish’s end.
