FastVPN by Namecheap: Is This VPN Really Fast?
Namecheap is banking on its reputation as an affordable but reliable web service brand with FastVPN.
What We Like
- Affordable plans: FastVPN costs $1 per month in the first year, which is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for a VPN.
- Well-dispersed servers: FastVPN has servers in 50 countries, including countries in North and South America, Europe, Africa, and the Asia Pacific region.
- Fast download and upload speeds: True to its name, FastVPN is a fast VPN, particularly for downloading.
What We Don't Like
- Questionable permissions: FastVPN asked permission to access our apps and resources, even when we’re offline.
- No split tunneling: None of the FastVPN apps offer split tunneling, which is an essential VPN feature for multitaskers.
- High latency and slower speeds on offshore servers: When we connected to servers farther away from us, we started seeing significant drops in speed and latency.
