Which VPN is better?

There are several benefits to each of these VPN services. Both NordVPN and Mullvad are based in VPN-friendly locations, Panama and Sweden respectively unlike VPN Unlimited, which is US-based, and therefore subject to US law. However, VPN Unlimited does come out miles ahead in terms of the number of servers and IP addresses that it has; only NordVPN comes close in terms of the number of server locations. But, in terms of security NordVPN, with its 2048-bit encryption leaps ahead, and while all three providers provide a no-log service, only two – NordVPN and Mullvad – backup their users’ security with the existence of kill switches. All three offer similar payment methods, but NordVPN stands out in terms of value for money. And again, while all three support a wide range of operating systems and platforms, NordVPN is the most reliable.

 The Bottom Line

Overall NordVPN is a clear and outright winner between these three providers. All offer steady services that allow connection to Netflix and the use of peer-to-peer and torrents, but NordVPN makes the experience easier, offering specific Torrent-friendly servers and access to the BBC, something that isn’t available through Mullvad. In terms of customer service, NordVPN is miles ahead of the other two providers, being the only one to offer dedicated 24/7 live support. It also offers the longest money-back guarantee at 30 days (not that you are likely to need it) and the best value for money packages, especially over the long term.

Interestingly, if you compare NordVPN with ExpressVPN, which is our top ranked vpn, you'll see that NordVPN can learn a lot from ExpressVPN. Compare NordVPN with ExpressVPN
