Before You Buy A Vpn Account
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you're looking to buy a vpn account there's a few things you need to keep in mind. Before you buy a vpn account you need to consider your location, your intended use of the vpn, the time period you're planning on using it, and how much you're looking to spend.

First of all, let's talk about price. When you buy a vpn account, you're going to have to spend at least two dollars a month. However, you can spend up to sixty! Why the huge price difference? Many vpn services offer basically the same things for different prices. This is hard to judge except by reading lots of user reviews which can be long and tedious, and still get you nowhere. Slow vpn speeds or bad customer service are all very relative and difficult to judge, but they may give you a good idea as to the quality of the vpn. Most decent vpn services are going to cost you about ten dollars a month, however, 12vpn has a lite service that is 35 dollars a year which is just over two dollars a month.

Another important thing to consider before you buy a vpn account is your location. If you're at school or work and trying to get outside your company's or school's firewall, you need to consider how easily you'll be able to access the vpn in the future. Are you at the same computer every day? Are you on a laptop? Is this something your going to have to reinstall often because you're switching computers. If you're in a country like China, Iran, UAE, or other places that censor the internet, you may find that some vpn sites are blocked. Witopia is now blocked in China and not only is their vpn site inaccessible, but users are unable to access their vpns. 12vpn is currently inaccessible as well, however, users are still able to use their vpn's to bypass internet censorship. Be sure to speak to customer service before you by a vpn account.

Which brings me to my next point. Live customer service is great. Most companies have it. 12vpn does not, but their email support is very quick. Live support is great because any problem or question is instantly answered. However, I've found that places with live customer support are quite slow to answer emails. Some places have 24/7 live support while others may be offline from time to time.

Do you want to buy a vpn account for a mobile device? Be sure you are clear which kind of vpn you're getting. Mobile devices should be using PPTP or L2TP. PPTP is less secure and with some companies L2TP will be more expensive. Sometime it's not.
