IPVanish (IPV) is a relatively newcomer to the VPN world and have been around from the last 3 years. It’s building out it’s network rapidly and acquiring a large base of customers. They are based in the USA. We’ve found the staff at IPV fast to respond to our support queries and sometimes creative with their solutions to fix issues. Unlike a lot of other VPN providers, IPV’s staff are all highly trained on getting users up and running with their software. They are so sure that you will love their product that they offer a 30 day money back guarantee.
IPV has over 178 VPN servers in 78 locations spread out in 62 countries. They are expanding their network aggressively. In fact this month they added 8 new servers in:
- Dublin, Ireland
- Helsinki, Finland
- Holešov, Czech Republic
- New York, USA
- Phoenix, USA
- Milan, Italy
- Nottingham, UK
In some of their advertising, IPV says that they have over 14,000 IP addresses that they manage. Our estimate that this is on the a conservative number. IPV rotates IP blocks in and out as needed in locations, this is especially useful if you are using a VPN to unlock content like Netflix in different countries.
IPV supports all major operating systems, with desktop clients for OSX & Windows. For Linux users it supports configuration with Linux CLI OpenVPN Client. IPV has iOS & Android apps that you can use with your smart phone or tablet. From the software you can select the individual server you would like to use, or you can select just the country. Selecting just the country will have IPV connect you to the fastest servers available.
Talking about speed, here is a quote from LifeHacker.com about IPV:
IPVanish earned high praise in the call for contenders thread for its speed while connected. How they manage to do it is impressive…
