Fastest VPN Review – Cheap and Fast VPN Service
Okay, if you want a fast VPN service, go for the Fastest VPN...! Yes, it's a new VPN service named "Fastest". We all expect a secure privacy protection and flexible server locations from a virtual private network, but a steady, smooth connectivity is as important. Especially when you're in a wifi spot, fast VPN service becomes essential.
I've been using Fastest VPN for a few weeks and am pretty happy with their service, today I'd like to share my experience with you.
Fastest VPN is owned by an IT security consulting company, Fastest Technology Limited based in Cayman Islands, and the service has only been in operation since late 2017.
I'm not going to lie - I'm a light user of VPN and therefore the price is my priority when choosing a provider. But I'm also greedy, I like taking things more than I need. Fastest VPN satisfies me on both counts. It offers one of the most competitive prices...for unlimited bandwidth!
You know, I'd like an option. I might want to start watching Anderson Cooper 360 live every single weeknight from tomorrow (CNN channel is currently unavailable in the UK, sadly).
Fastest VPN promises to mask your IP and allow anonymous torrenting and enjoy any content that you love without compromising on privacy and security. It also allows you to download files restriction-free with unlimited bandwidth, stream, buffer and watch/listen content that is censored and geo-restricted from anywhere around the world.
1 month plan
Billed $10 monthly
3 years plan
Billed $49.95 triennially
12 months plan
Billed $44.95 annually
The 3-years plan can seem a little risky because Fastest VPN is new. And who knows if there'll be a much better deal elsewhere in 2 years time or even in the next 12 months...
Having said that, the 3-years plan is the best value for money as you can see. With the 12-months plan you'll pay $44.95 now and pay another $44.95 same time next year. Better off paying an extra $5 now and you won't be billed again for 3 years...I'd personally feel that way.
I don't feel the 1-month plan is not such a good deal either, since it offers a 7-day money back guarantee. The other two plans will work out cheaper if you continue to use it for 5 months or more.

I'm a Mac user and the installation was easy as normal. Download the app from the Fastest VPN site and it's ready to use. You just need to follow the full graphical instruction to set up the protocols step-by-step.
One account subscription allows you to use up to 5 devices simultaneously.
The Windows app offer 60 server locations across the world; 6 in North America, 6 in South America, 33 in Europe, 12 in Asia and 3 in Australia. Right now, I can only see 13 locations in my Mac app.
- France (paris)
- The Netherlands
- USA (New York)
- USA (Florida)
- Australia (Sydney)
- United Kigdom
- Russia (Moscow)
It covers most of the "Tier 1" countries and personally that's good enough for me. Meanwhile the Fastest VPN support says they're adding more in the near future. Also if you'd like a server location that's not currently listed, you can always send your request to the support.
There's no restrictions on changing locations, so you can switch servers as many times and as often as you need.
Here are the security features Fastest VPN offers;
- Anti-Malware - when you connect to a server, the malware protection feature runs by default.
- DNS Leak Protection - the built-in DNS leak protection prevents any internet requests outside the VPN tunnel that expose your IP.
- Advanced 256-Bit AES Encryption - trusted by security professionals worldwide.
- Wi-Fi security - whether you are connected to a public connection or a private one.
- NAT Firewall - provides extra added layer of security
- Ad-blocking - the feature blocks any frustrating ads from popping up on your screen.
As far as the speed is concerned, Fastest VPN never seems to disappoint me. At least for now, I'm extremely happy with it.
I have tried all the current 13 server locations that are listed in my Mac app, and none of them has disappointed me. Especially with the ones from T1 countries (2 x USA, Canada, UK and Australia), I see absolutely no noticeable slowdown.
Fastest VPN also promises 99.99% uptime and no bandwidth throttling. I certainly haven't experienced "no connection" or sudden deceleration as yet.
Help and Support
If there's anything that's unclear from the tutorial and FAQ's, you can ask any question by email or by Live Chat.
I'm pretty happy with the speed of their response; I've asked them a few questions by email and they responded within a day, but that was when I didn't know that a live chat was also available from the homepage. I then tried a live chat on a Saturday night (UK time - assuming Saturday afternoon in Cayman Islands), it took about 10-15 minutes before someone answered, but I was able to chat as normal with him.
Fastest VPN is not a huge company with someone ready in front of the switchboard 24/7. And for the price they offer, I'm more than happy with the speed and the quality of their help.
