    I like the trial thing. It's the best way to see if somebody will like the vpn or not.

    I'm not all that into the whole IT craze and couldn't learn anything from the site. At least the support guys were quick on their feet.

    Not the best speeds in the world, not by a long shot.

    I can use it on my laptop, phone and tablet at the same time and it doesn't slow my internet speed too much.

    The speeds are ok at best. Most of the time, it’s not annoying, but sometimes it is, so I can’t really recommend it, there are better VPNs, ExpressVPN for one.

    An average VPN with average speeds and below-average privacy.
  • Submitted By Ryan Larkins on 07/19/2017
    Thank God for the trial. Not that it’s awful, but there are definitely way better options out there.

    Unblock-us is a very unstable service. I use their SmartDNS cuz I only want to watch Hulu and stuff but the connection is dropping like every hour or so. I canceled my subscription but they still billed me for the period I paid, didn't give me my money back.

Winner

Unblock-Us is a company that offers SmartVPN and SmartDNS instead of traditional VPN services. They boast excellent speeds, support a wide variety of channels, and provide great device compatibility.
