Surfeasy VPN Review 2017:
Accept it, without VPN, you could not enjoy the real fun of internet due to international, national censorship, security issues, privacy concern and freedom to download/upload torrent files and folders. Majority of countries worldwide do not allow you to download torrent and if you did, you could be fined and jailed. For example in USA, UK, Canada and England etc. you are not allowed to use your internet to download and upload torrent files. On other hand, countries in Middle East like UAE, Qatar, Egypt, and Oman etc, you are allowed to take advantage of torrents but you are not allowed to visit adult websites due to censorship by government and law.

We have used several online tools to analyze the downloading and upload speed of Surfeasy VPN. Overall it works fine on different DNS like Google. We have test several IPs offered by Surfeasy to make sure that the speed works fine on all of them and surprisingly its works. There was some glitch when you change the IPs, but over all time give us good result. The average downloading speed we received was 2.2MB/s but this could be vary on your original internet speed as well.
Youtube Video buffering was smooth and did not received any issue to play videos in 720p while we have to wait a bit to play 1080p videos. For a home user this is an ideal speed of VPN to receive.
Customer support is one of the most important thing you need to think about when you purchase virtual products like VPN because it is the only way to get your problem solved. Surfeasy provide 24 hours online support. You can call them to queries solved instantly. Their online ticketing system is easy to submit the ticket but unfortunately they did not replied very quickly as we have expected.
Pros of SurfEasy:
- Good quality of VPN provider in very cheap prices
- Physical VPN device available in $64
- Great discount on yearly package
- Free 7 days trial for everyone
- Software and application available for all devices
- Five simultaneous connection for everyone
- Multiple active IPs available 24 hours
- Servers located in 13 countries.
Cons of SurfEasy:
- No P2P available, which means that you cannot use SurfEasy for torrent
- Customer support was bit slow. We have to wait for about 24 hours to get response
- There is no feature available to control Bandwidth.
We will rate SurfEasy 4 out of 5 start because no P2P available which is a big disadvantage for you if you are an active P2P share user (no torrent allowed). Another reason for 4 star is slow customer support, especially if you are writing them a ticket to solve your problem.
