AirVPN Review 2022

A VPN, or virtual private network, is often used to bypass blocks in order to gain access to a site or service blocked in your country. But that’s not the only benefit of a VPN. These technologies protect your data from those who try to find out what you are doing on the Internet – and will be useful to anyone who is worried about the safety and privacy of their information.

Here we present the review on Purevpn and answer the following questions:

  • How quick are VPN download and upload speeds?
  • How well does it work on Netflix?
  • How good is it for torrenting?
  • Are there differences in these options for different regions?

The number of servers – only 200 located in 22 countries (mainly developed) means that the average up/download speed will be low than the industry averages.

Speed tests

We can all agree that faster download speeds are preferable and assume that a VPN might slow things down a bit.

Download speed

Here we present the results of our download tests. Unfortunately, we managed to get data for only 20 countries from 226 (8.8%), in particular:

  • for USA, Canada, and Brazil for the Americas;
  • for Austria, Belgium, Estonia, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, the United Kingdom for Europe;
  • for Singapore and Japan (fail) for the Asia Pacific.

Ping out time

The ping value depends on many parameters. First of all, it depends on the number of “intermediaries” in the server-client chain, the number of which is proportional to the geographical distance of the server from the client computer. Another parameter that determines ping is the type of connection: a connection to the provider’s network equipment via fiber is preferable to ADSL or 3G channels. Which ping is better: high or low?
Of course, the lower the ping, the better. After all, Internet speed ping is a signal delay between the server and the computer:

DNS Leak Test

When using a VPN, it is expected that all traffic sent and received over an encrypted channel is securely protected. This includes your real IP address, your actual location, and the ISP you are using. If this information is available to third-party resources, then tracking your activity is not very limited, and data about your activities can be used for other than advertising purposes.
