ExpressVPN Review

This is the review page of ExpressVPN. Here you will find an in-depth analysis of the use of the VPN service at ExpressVPN. In this review, we look in more detail at the following elements: Speed, installation, app use, the number of servers and countries, support and the various packages and payment options.

ExpressVPN speedtest

We perform speed tests with In addition, we opt for the server determined by and a multi-connection. First we perform the test without the connection with VPN and then with a VPN connection. We perform these two tests directly one after the other *. After comparing speed with and without VPN, we then perform a test on a VPN server in America.

The speed at our test location is very high. This allows us to fully test the speed of the VPN service.

Speedtest without connection to VPNSpeedtest without connection to VPN
Speedtest connected with VPNSpeedtest connected with VPN
Speedtest connected with VPN in the USASpeedtest connected with VPN in the USA

The speeds at ExpressVPN are very high. Of course the speeds without VPN are not achieved, but the speed that is achieved is more than sufficient to be able to do everything online without bothering you with the VPN connection. With the connection to the American VPN you see that upload, in contrast to the download, does fall sharply. You won’t get any problems with this. Your American VPN is generally used for streaming, with the download speed being the biggest factor.

* Despite the fact that we perform the tests as directly as possible after each other, a speed test depends on many causes. As a result, a speed test is always indicative.

ExpressVPN Ease of installation

The ease of installation at ExpressVPN is very high. After making the payment you will immediately see the screen to download your preferred app. We opted for the Mac installation. In this screen a clear download button appears with an activation code that you have to enter later in the installation process to make your account active in the app.

We have downloaded and tested the Mac app, but ExpressVPN offers many more apps for different systems. See them all below.

ExpressVPN app easy of use

In this analysis, we thoroughly tested the Mac version of the app and found out whether it is handy and functional. The app chooses the best server for you to connect to, your so-called Smart Location (in our case Netherlands - The Hague). Of course you can also choose which server you want to connect to yourself. Switching between different servers is very fast and very intuitive.

In the app it is also possible to indicate which VPN protocol you want to use to connect to the servers. By default, these values are set to an automatic selection. The app then chooses the protocol that is most suitable for you at that time. Do you want to be in control? Then you can easily adjust that in the app.

Choose a protocol yourself or determine automaticallyChoose a protocol yourself or determine automatically

The app also gives the possibility to do a speed test to all VPN servers that ExpressVPN offers. We have of course tested this but are not very satisfied with it. The function can be useful if you have no insight at all. We believe, however, that you often make the choice yourself to which server you can connect and the test took a very long time to complete, during the test we chose to abort the test because it took us too long.

ExpressVPN servers and countries

At ExpressVPN you can connect to approximately 3000 servers, at 160 locations in 94 countries. This gives you enough options to always be able to connect to the right server or location. The number of servers at ExpressVPN is really great and therefore scores very well.

A lot of servers to choose fromA lot of servers to choose from

ExpressVPN support

We are going to test the support of ExpressVPN by starting a live chat about a fairly simple question. We then look at how quickly customer service responds and how quickly our question is answered. In addition, we also check whether the customer service representative is friendly to us, even though we ask a fairly simple question.

After asking the question I received an answer from a person after 10 seconds. He first asked for our email address in order to be able to reach me in the event of a broken chat. After giving the email address it took 3 minutes before the question was actually answered. The answer was sufficient and accurate. When canceling the chat we asked to send us a copy of the chat to our email. I received the email with the chat history 3 hours later.

After sharing these results, we look at the support page of ExpressVPN. Is the support page intuitive? Do you find the answers to your questions quickly?

The support page of ExpressVPN is clearThe support page of ExpressVPN is clear

The support page is well-arranged and easy to reach. There is a clear search function available, which helped perfectly with our searches. Furthermore, you can quickly click through to the most frequently asked questions, live chat (24/7 support) and manuals for setting up the VPN. They have made many videos to provide simple explanations about the use of the VPN connection.

ExpressVPN packages and payment options

At ExpressVPN they have one product and that product is exactly what you are looking for, VPN. The costs at ExpressVPN are quite high, but they also provide a high-quality VPN service for that. As with many, the longer you order the service, the lower the cost per month. View the costs per period in the table below.

We have tried this money-back-guarantee. We were promised the money back without asking, and yes, within 3 working days we had the money back on our account.

You can pay in 14 ways at ExpressVPN. This allows you to use almost all possible payment options at ExpressVPN. Paying with Bitcoin is also possible, this ensures that you remain even more anonymous.

Conclusion review about ExpressVPN

We are very happy with the service that ExpressVPN offers. The VPN service is fast, the app is easy to use and support helps you exactly where you need it. All these plus points come with a high price, which we at therefore also find the only real disadvantage. After this review we definitely recommend you to try ExpressVPN!

Edward Tibruski gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Fastest VPN. Stable and efficient. I did settle for cheaper solutions in the past, and I was disappointed. ExpressVPN is a bit pricey, but worth every penny.

Vicky Dawson gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

The only VPN I trust. I have this installed on all my devices. The one time I had a slight issue, I managed to speak to an online advisor who solved the issue in 20 minutes. Excellent service and product

Wayde Kevin Powell gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

ExpressVPN is GREAT! I've been living in Germany for the last two years and I'm so glad that I've sigh up for ExpressVPN. When I first came to Germany we were using the Germany internet server. Not understanding the language it was very hard to find what I was looking for on the internet. In google you can it translate in english, but it seems you have to do that every time. Even when I wanted to watch Netflix, I got a lot of german shows, plus I couldn't get the shows I was watch before I left the states. Once I got ExpressVPN...No problem. U.S. internet will pop up every time and getting all of my original Netflix shows. Still using the Germany server, but it seems like ExpressVPN took over. This really something great...home away from home.

I love express vpn, and i know for a fact that it works because a while back I was actually shopping around for a different vpn and while I was weighing my options i had noticed that express vpn had the other vpn provider convinced i was in a completely different state.ive been with express ever guys are great!! thanks!!

Ryan Richard Travis gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

honestly one of the best products I've ever bought. Firstly it's fast and has a lot of locations. I've tried a few VPNs and where others can feel slow, this accelerates. secondly i feel safe using it. with highly encrypted data and no records, its super safe. thirdly the costumer support is outstanding. I always use live support, and have contacted them 3 time, every time my problem was solved within 10min. They are so good. it's pricey, but worth it in my opinion. With nord being the only rival, i would go for express, as they might not have the same level of encryption, they offer higher speeds. That might not apply to everyone, but that's my experience.

I've just spent a few very frustrating months with poor connectivity using ExpressVPN and cannot use it from my home. I live in the UK. I use Sky broadband. Sky seem to be blocking EVPN. The internet blocks as soon as i try to connect with EVPN. I tried lots of different settings and locations. I then tried to go to troubleshoot on ExpressVPN's website. It was then I got my first clue. The site was not accessible - it had a sky broadband message saying sky shield had blocked it. I turned off the sky shield and now access the expressvpn website fine and chat but still can not connect using EVPN. Also the phone version is unreliable and creates connectivity issues -slowness. Finally when accessing through non sky broadband it does connect but even though the ip address seems to represent a UK location, my google page is in arabic and searches in the UAE. I have to change location every time - tedious. Their support was basic, circular and utterly unhelpful. Tried numerous times - email - chat. They know absolutely nothing beyond the settings you can change. Waste of time. I'm looking elsewhere now. I have no idea why this is so highly rated on the web - perhaps they give huge affiliate fees or perhaps its only poor in the UK. But either way my faith in reviews has diminished significantly since being duped by so many good ones a few months ago. I wish had never seen them - time ill not get back

Diego gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I've been using ExpressVPN for some time now and i can only recommend it. Multiple choice of servers allows for different type of use, the connection is always stable and the price/quality ratio cannot be beaten!

Judith Drotar gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I always feel SAFE and SECURE online. I work overseas, travel a lot. I have tried other VPNs, but I prefer ExpressVPN. It's easy, dependable, and very user friendly wherever I am. Go ExpressVPN and thank you!
