12vpn is a great vpn service for several reasons. For a newbie to the whole vpn scene, they make choosing a vpn very simple – they only have three choices of vpn services making selecting a vpn from 12vpn very simple. The three choices are
- US IP ($79 / 12 months)
- World VPN ($119 / 12 months)
The main difference between the Lite and Personal services is the bandwidth limitation. The lite service limits you to 10GB per month. This limitation, for the average user isn't much of a problem. If you're using the vpn when you go to public internet spots like wifi cafes, airports, or in a dorm, etc, the lite US only version will definitely be fine. There is NO WAY you could use 10 GB of bandwidth in one month.
If you're using the vpn for gaming, downloading, watching movies or television, or other activities that you do every day, then the personal US or personal world would be a good option.
The difference between the US only and World versions of the personal vpn is the number of server locations, and the number of countries available. The US only has servers in
- New York
- Kansas City
- San Jose
- Los Angeles (x2)
- Las Vegas
The world version would add servers in
- United States
- United Kingdom
The world services would be useful if you're going to be using services from these countries. Things like the BBC iPlayer can be accessed by signing into a server in the UK. There are also many gaming sites that are limited to Japanese IP addresses, and well. The world is at your finger tips! Oh, and one HUGE advantage is that they allow free, unlimited server switching.
Customer service gets 10 stars. While they don't have live chat available, they are very quick with their email responses, and the friendliest out of any vpn customer service team we've ever dealt with, and we've communicated with quite a few.
Speed and reliability is not an issue. Ever.
Their vpn can be use on just about any device you can think of.
- iOS (iPad / iPhone / iPod)
- Mac OS/X
- Symbian S60 (selected models)
- Windows Phone 7 (in the near future)
- Blackberry Playbook
- Nokia N9 + others
and they've got just about every kind of vpn protocol you could ever want.
