As you might guess VPN.asia is focused on the Asian market. The online privacy service launched in 2015 and has server locations strategically located around the world. We found their network to be fast and reliable. While VPN.asia might be new to the market, we did not have any issues along the way. In fact we were impressed by their network and software.
You can tell that the VPN.asia team put a lot of time and effort into the service before they launched. For starters they have one simple plan that includes unlimited VPN access. They offer new members a free trial and are also offering the first month of VPN for just $1. That shows how committed they are to the service. We think their customer focus will pay off over time.
VPN Client for Windows and Mac
- VPN.asia offers a free VPN client for Windows and Mac. The software helps you connect to any of their 150+ servers in 17 countries. The response time column will help you select the fastest server for your current location.
- The client supports multiple VPN protocols including OpeVPN (TCP and UDP), L2TP and PPTP. For those unfamiliar OpenVPN is more secure and the best protocol to use on any device that supports it. L2TP and PPTP extend compatibility to a wide range of devices that would not otherwise be supported.
- VPN.asia also supports routers. They do not have a manual set up guide on their site yet but there is a place for one so I would expect the instructions to be posted soon. You can protect your entire network with a single VPN account by connecting through your router.
- Mobile devices – VPN.asia offers a free custom app for members to use on Android phones and tablets. While they do not offer an iOS app yet, the VPN.asia team has a guide that will walk you through setting up an L2TP connection on iPhone or iPad.
