FastestVPN is a Cayman Island-based VPN service launched in 2017 by Fastest Technology Limited, with an aim to offer a fast and convenient privacy solution for online users. Whether you want to protect your online privacy, or enjoy browsing freedom, FastestVPN has all your needs covered with its reliable VPN service.
Even though FastestVPN has only been around for a short amount of time, it’s slowly stamping its name in the market by offering top-notch security and privacy with efficient service. I have been using FastestVPN for a while now and am pretty satisfied with its quality service and performance. To find out what makes FastestVPN an ideal option for protecting your privacy online, and what it has on offer.
The best thing about fastestVPN service is that it’s one of the cheapest, yet extremely reliable in terms of performance. It has over 60+ servers across the globe, which isn’t much but it’s enough when considering server connectivity and speeds. Moreover, their support team says they are going to add more servers in near future.
The server locations include Australia (Sydney), Canada, France (Paris), Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Romania, Russia (Moscow), Singapore, Sweden, USA (Florida, New York), and the United Kingdom.
FastestVPN is compatible with multiple platforms:
- Android TV
FastestVPN offers 3 subscription plans: a 2-year plan, 12 months plan, and a 1-month plan which are pretty basic. Their support team says they previously offered other plans including a 5-year plan with a crazy discount and a 6 months plan.
The 2-year plan seems the best value for money. As you can see it only cost you $39.95 in total. The 12-months plan will cost you $44.95 annually.
Their 1-month plan will cost you a whopping $10, which seems pretty expensive to me but it, along with the 1-year and 2-year plan, includes a 7-day money back guarantee. They are not offering any free trial at the moment.

Setup & Interface
Installing FastestVPN on Windows and Mac is pretty easy – all you need to do is download its app and install it on your Windows/Mac. Setting up Android client is also simple but, however, there is no app available for iOS devices currently. You can get the app for your device from its website easily or you can also download it from your platform stores (Windows Store/App Store/Google Play Store). For other platforms (Linux, ChromeOS, Raspberry Pi), you can go to their setup guides to get your device configured with FastestVPN settings.
The app is easy to use and user-friendly. The interface looks simple and you can easily navigate to different options. To connect to any server, select a protocol and double-tap on any server location you want to connect to and then hit the lightning logo to connect. There are no limits to how many times you can switch between different servers – which is a plus point.
As far as the performance is concerned, fastestVPN didn’t disappoint and I recommend it to everyone who is looking for an affordable, fast VPN.
I’ve tried all their server locations on Windows and Android client, we didn’t experience server disconnections or any noticeable decrease in speeds as you can see and they were pretty high especially with USA and UK servers.
Apart from that, fastestVPN also offers unlimited bandwidth and 99.99% uptime.
