From time to time, everyone needs to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network). Whether it be to access geolocation restricted content online or just to hide your location from the internet. I gotta say, I have used many VPNs throughout my career, and I’m proud to say that I’ve found the best one, Express VPN. And today I’m going to explain why I think it’s the best one out there.
My Previous Experiences with VPN Clients
Okay, first I gotta tell you about the backstory of my VPN experiences. One of my jobs requires the consistent use of a VPN client. What I primarily need from it is that its location is accurate. For example, if I need to connect to, say, New York, New York, United States, I need to actually be in that location online. Now, the VPN that does this flawlessly was Speedify. I have used Speedify for a while, but it remained inconsistent when it came to its speeds. Sometimes it would be ultra-fast and sometimes it wouldn’t even work and I had to contact support.
Next one I tried was the praised (for some reason) NordVPN. I gotta say, I thought I have found the one, but as it turned out, NordVPN had laughable geolocation. I remember that at one point, I needed to connect to Warsaw, Poland. The VPN connected me to Russia, for some reason, unknown to me.
I have also downloaded my share of those sketchy free clients that are absolute garbage. But one client that isn’t absolutely terrible was TunnelBear. Yes, it’s a free VPN, but it does the job it was designed to do. To get you out of your online location.
After watching tens of review videos and reading articles online, I decided to give ExpressVPN a shot, despite its steep price. They were offering a one-month money-back trial. So I thought: “What the hell, let’s give it a shot”. And my God was I pleasantly surprised.
Express VPN UIExpressVPN is easy to install and even easier to use. The UI is, in my opinion, flawless. It’s perfectly readable and responsive, unlike many other clients (looking at you, Speedify). The speeds are amazing. With my 100 Mbps connection, I was able to get a download speed of up to 80 Mbps. And that’s what makes ExpressVPN one of the fastest clients out there.
But naturally, if you’re located in Eastern Europe and you want to connect to the Western United States, your speeds are going to be much lower, but that’s to be expected.
What I also liked about ExpressVPN is that it had an abundance of location options, which is exactly what I need. The combination of many locations and high speeds. The locations are also very accurate.
So if you decide to give Express VPN a shot, you can register and buy it here.
