FastestVPN Review 2022

FastestVPN is based in the Cayman Islands, a self-governing British Overseas Territory. Companies operating in these locations are subject to local jurisdiction and not the laws of the Crown.

This, along with the fact that the country has significantly improved its personal data protection laws, means that the environment for VPN providers is ideal. FastestVPN takes advantage of this and does its best to help its customers ensure their privacy and security online.

Features

The most important features of FastestVPN are:

  • P2P optimized servers
  • Unlimited server switching
  • Unlimited roaming
  • Ad blocker
  • NAT firewall
  • 256-bit AES encryption
  • Anti-logging policy
  • 10 simultaneous logins
  • Internet kill switch

Speed Test

The speed of a VPN is very important. That’s why we thoroughly test the speed of all VPN providers. The name of this provider, FastestVPN, sounds promising. But is it really the fastest VPN out there? To find out, we ran some speed tests. Read below to see if FastestVPN lives up to its name.

Fastest VPN Speed Test Results

Using speedtest.net, we have conducted some speed tests with FastestVPN. Speed test results are affected by a variety of factors, including location, ISP, and time of day of the test. FastestVPN was tested both locally and on remote servers. We also tested our internet speeds without a VPN connection to establish a baseline.

Above you can see the results of our normal internet access without VPN. We will use this data as a baseline for comparison with other test results.

These are the speedtest.net results for our Internet connection when connected to a local FastestVPN server near our home. The results are good. As you can see, the ping response time has increased slightly, while the download and upload speeds have decreased slightly. However, the difference between the two is minimal. This shows that the speed of the local server is very good.

Above you can see the speed of our Internet connection when connecting to a remote FastestVPN server that is far from the office. The ping response time has increased significantly. The download and upload speeds have decreased slightly. However, these results are to be expected for a VPN server that is far away from our physical location and are actually quite good.

Servers and Locations

FastestVPN has over 250 servers in 39 locations. All FastestVPN servers support P2P file sharing. When you log in, you will be automatically connected to a server near you. Although it has a relatively small network of servers compared to other VPN services, FastestVPN is constantly evolving. Before you buy a subscription, you can check the server list to make sure that the countries you need are available. Europe and North America have a larger selection of servers, while Asia and Africa, Australia, and South America have fewer options.

Pricing Plans

Choose between a one-month, one-year, or three-year contract. The longer the term, the less you’ll pay per month. FastestVPN prices are very reasonable, especially with the three-year option. A single subscription allows for unlimited server upgrades and 10 simultaneous connections for a total of 10 devices, which is a very generous package.

Privacy and Logging

The clear headline on the FastestVPN website states that the service “We log nothing!” It goes on to say, “We never log your Internet activity.” . No one can track you after you visit a site while connected to our servers’.

In the privacy policy we find the same information, with a small additional detail: ‘We do not store your log files in any way. Any information or logs related to your browsing history – the sites you visit, the content you download or stream, traffic destinations, or DNS requests – are kept by you and only you.

While that sounds good, there’s no way to know if the company is actually enforcing these “no-log” requirements. Most VPNs do the same, but some (TunnelBear, NordVPN, ExpressVPN, etc.) are publicly audited and provide real evidence that they deliver what they promise. This is a big step forward from the usual “you can trust us, but you really can’t” approach, and we hope more providers will do the same in the coming years.

Multiple Devices

If you’re tired of getting more and more subscriptions, switching to FastestVPN might surprise you. FastestVPN allows simultaneous connections from ten (10) different devices. As long as the device you’re using is compatible with FastestVPN, you’re good to go!

In addition, FastestVPN is compatible with a wide range of devices, including Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, routers, Linux, PlayStore, and Kodi. I know it’s surprising that VPN services are compatible with routers and Kodi; but FastestVPN makes it possible.

No TV? Sorry, we missed that, it is even compatible with PlayStation 3 and 4, XboX and AppleTV. Users can use one FastestVPN account on five (5) devices simultaneously.

User Experience

The FastestVPN client is extremely beginner-friendly and can be downloaded from the official website in no time. The design is a combination of blue and white with some orange details that give the client a very elegant and “bunker” look. Once you launch the client, you’ll see a pretty standard login box that asks you to enter your email address and password that you had to enter when you created your original account on the official website.

When you log in, the client will automatically connect to the nearest server. On the main screen, you’ll see a large yellow connect button, as well as DeepL access buttons for the home page, accounts, favorites, and settings. This provides an easy-to-navigate environment where you can access everything you need with a single click. All of FastestVPN’s apps have been updated recently and the changes are obvious. Compared to the previous versions, the new apps are faster and even more user-friendly, offering a pleasant experience for users.

Customer Support

Another reason why I appreciate FastestVPN is that many VPN users often face countless difficulties when trying to set up a VPN or use certain features of the app.

FastestVPN offers live help 24/7 to meet your needs as you wish. Even though the chat support takes a while to respond, which is very rare, they do have some tutorials on their website that will most easily explain how to get started with your VPN.
