I'm in the same situation than Catman , in march 2016 I suscribed for one year at NordVPN , remains 2 months but I don't use it anymore since I'm with AirVpn.

Eddie under linux is a great software very useful ,  connections are fast,  solid and very clean (no proxies or black list as with NordVPN ) . AirVPN did a great job, very professionnal , impossible now for me to go back to NordVpn

 

Anyway I've a Few remarks :

Aivpn is based in Italy ( not the best country for internet freedom)

There is not a lot of country locations and most of them apart to Nato and the fourteen eyes countries ,

Happily there is some switzeland servers with Private Inc Layer who is an isp based both in switzeland and Panama (Other swiss servers have a UK isp ) . I'm using Austrian servers too

 

Adding some servers in Iceland and Estonia and AirVpn would be perfect !!!

 

Despite these minor remarks AirVpn is definitively the best VPN i've ever used , I've subsribed for 3 months and I definitively won't go back , thank you for the great Job to all of the team

Same with me, subscribed to 2 years of NordVPN (it was a good deal, I'll give 'em that) 10 days ago but ended up asking for a full refund and just subscribed for 3 months of AirVPN to test it out.

 

Like others have said, many servers were offline, speeds were awful, connections dropping all the time and on top of that, the support itself was NOT helpful at all.

They didn't even bother to ask me why I wanted a refund, oh well...

 

Anyway, I have a 100/20 connection and this is what I'm getting with AirVPN ON: https://www.speedtest.net/result/6048991578.png

 

Can't really ask for more!

 

The only issue I'm having right now is I can't connect to AirVPN on a mac laptop (Windows workstation is connecting fine).

Already contacted support so let's see how it goes...

That's exactly the reason that made me subscribe to NordVPN in the first place instead of AirVPN.

As a new customer, this worries me a bit.

Would be amazing if they could relocate to an offshore in the future...

I have rather the same thing to say - but there is sometimes confidence in numbers.

 

Currently have both NordVPN and AirVPN.  Currently utilizing Canadian VPN servers near Toronto for both Nord and Air.  In the case of Nord, I do this because I spent hours testing and they are the only sorta-near servers that halfway work!  Nord servers constantly fail to authenticate, and when I am "connected" the DNS server lookup often does not work.

 

When I am able to use Nord, the speeds are faster on both up- and down-link.  But (fingers crossed) AirVPN has been more reliable for the past day I have been testing it.  Really hope it stays this way - good job so far!!

 

So why oh why is NordVPN always rated so highly in best VPN comparison publications??

So... should anyone still want to use Nord VPN occasionally for some reason (like, they have servers in Iceland)...  With a VPN-capable router (Asus in my case) try using Nord with the DNS Server settings recommended by Air VPN.  The main problem IMHO with Nord is silliness with their DNS servers not performing.  Having followed Air VPN Asus router directions and set DNS server automatic connection to "NO", DNS Server #1 to 10.4.0.1, and DNS Server #2 to a selection from https://www.opennic.org, Nord now works much better.  Since I'm stuck with two years of Nord service anyway (unless I scream for a refund) I'm thinking I may use this as a backup plan.

I joined a month ago. Airvpn has been my first choice after checking prices, reviews, forums etc. I immediately decided to install it on a DD-WRT router (that I bought on purpose) and then. I bought a 1 day subscription and set it up in no time following the how to on the forum. I bought additional 2 day and then a year subscription. I am extremely happy. All my home devices are connected using the router and I use the OpenVPN setup on my mobile.....simply fantastic. Oh...I forgot to mention... The support service is fast and helpful. Grazie AirVPN!

Hi @all,

 

I've tried a few VPN  Providers lately, one of them is NordVPN. I can't say anything bad about this Provider. It's attached to a tomato Router (Netgear Nighthawk) and works fine  (Tested yesterday: 32 Mbps on my CellPhone). With the Client on Windows i've got ~120 Mbps last time i tested it (even gaming was working fine for me). So it's about the same Speed i got with Hadar (Linux / Eddie) today.

 

At the moment I'm using both (AirVPN and NordVPN) because NordVPN had a 2year offer, which was a really good deal. I personally like both Provider....imho: Air has the advantage of Eddie for Linux....which is really helpful. NordVPN covers more countries.

 

Of course sometimes Server are slower than other, but this happens to Air also....for example all HK Servers except Hadar aren't useabe for me at the moment. So, if there are other working Server, everything is fine for me :).

 

By and excuse for my english

DoubleH

First time using a VPN. After much internal reflection, ended up going with AirVPN :) Found a discount code to boot XD made it all the more worthwhile IMO and sub for a year.
