From a user: Hi. My question may seem somewhat silly, but I’m a newbie of the service and want to scrutinize it before making a subscription. So, I need to know how to test a VPN service through its free trial, so that I can see the service is great.
Thanks for your question. So, the question is pretty reasonable for a newbie, as the market is overloaded with multiple outputs and it’s quite difficult to get whether a service is worthy or not.
An average period for a free trial version is about 1-2 days. However, some of the services offer 20 minutes, the others 7 days. So, before testing a service you need to make sure there are no limitations on speed, bandwidth or server locations. Provided that server locations are locked and you have a chance to connect to the internet through three different locations, try to choose a server that is the furthest from your physical location and the nearest. After making several speed tests (download and sending speed) you will get a foretaste of the average service’s speed performance. Besides, provided that you have a possibility to choose any protocol you wish, try to switch over all of them and see which of them are the fastest. As a rule L2TP and OpenVPN are more time-consuming. However, PPTH and SSTP are lack of reliability and protection. Besides a free trial version, a company can offer a money-back guarantee, which is also great for your budget. In this case, if you haven’t noticed any disadvantages during the testing period, you will have a chance to get your money back. Probably, you should read some more information from the article the best VPNs for the USA where you will find the all-time services and their detailed description.
