Currently deciding between vpn providers

Post by askingqs » Thu Nov 22, 2018 8:41 pm

Hi guys, let me get to the point.


My current provider:

blackvpn

Potential provider in the future:

cryptostorm

Reasons for a switch:

I am using the vpn for some stuff I don't want to get into detail here. You get the gist, I don't want a provider who is potentially looking what I am doing or has the potential to do something like that in the future. I am aware that no provider will help me cover up potentially criminal deeds of mine, though. I don't trust blackvpn with that anymore.

Some users consider this forum and the official website as messy and so on. I also like the reasoning that the "staff" puts the focus on the service itself instead on the public relations stuff. I also couldn't care less about be bestiality stuff. Cryptostorm seems also very flexible if someone should try to shut down their service in the future (different bank accounts and so on). Speed doesn't really matter, all vpn providers can't match my internet speed. For the pirating I have a seedbox at hand.

What are your experiences with the service? What are some downsides or really positive sides about cryptostorm?


Thanks in advance for your assistance!

anonymity - bitcoin payment and token to connect, and disposable email can be used.

speed - "Speed doesn't really matter, all vpn providers can't match my internet speed." true but not all vpns' speed are the same.

history - "I also couldn't care less about be bestiality stuff." that is old stuff and nothing to do with the current team.

software - major platforms, openvpn and security features (cs can explain).

test - no trial but you can try cryptofree (reduced speed) to get a feel or buy a week token (trough paypal) or a month token (through bitcoin).

price - black friday sale is currently on and lifetime token is also available.

service - excellent current team : df, fermi, parityboy

safety - at the end of the day can't be proven until an "event" happens, it's a matter of judgment and trust and being prepared.
