I do not have to think about it, it just works.
NordVPN ticks all the right boxes. I confess that this is the VPN I personally use and have done so for over a year. NordVPN offers good value considering what it offers.
After using it every day on several devices it has never skipped a beat, it offers reliability.
Speed & Reliability
I have read reports that speed lets it down, but I use it daily and have done for some time and my experience has been great. I have been using whilst in Australia, both the speed and connection reliability have been good across all devices including an Android TV Box, iPad and Windows. Given the number of servers they have dotted around the globe, 5000+ according to their website, then this is of no surprise. They have obviously invested in infrastructure.
Top notch. Armour plated encryption is used. Once running you can forget its there, securing your personal data, whilst maintaining its own integrity with its no log policy. This basically means that they do not store any of your browsing history.
If I were to compare NordVPN to a car manufacture then I say Toyota, as it is reliable, safe and reasonably priced.
Their most popular plan is the $3.49 per month 3 year plan. This comes with a 30 day refundable offer. Other plans include $4.99 per month on a 2 year plan and $6.99 on a 1 year plan.
NordVPN has servers in over 60 countries. Impressive. Remember though that if your country is not on the list this doesn't mean that you will not be able to use their service, you should still have a good connection just that it might be better if servers were physically located in your location.
