What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Slower upload speed: In every speed test we performed, the upload speed was always significantly lower than the download speed.
  • Inconsistent streaming access: While it has streaming-optimized servers, it didn’t always bypass the VPN blocks of streaming websites.
  • Long subscription terms: To enjoy the best price, you’ll need to sign up for a two-year plan. Otherwise, the monthly plan is only slightly cheaper than other options.

Bottom Line

Private Internet Access can work on so many levels, whether you want to prioritize privacy, speed, or both. It’s one of the most user-friendly VPNs, and even though it’s not the fastest, it’s a well-balanced option for casual and pro users.
