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.

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!

Graham Adria gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I am working in China. My friends and colleagues with other VPNs struggle at times, as they are unable to connect. Never had such a problem with ExpressVPN. I've always been able to get at least a few outside connections no matter the circumstances in China. There is usually one option in the US, Hong Kong, and Japan. Can't recommend enough if you're going to spend time in China.

Subash Neupane gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Super fast VPN, able to access many YouTube videos which are restricted by different location. Just need to clear the cache of YouTube app and turn on VPN of specific country in which that video is access and then watch any YouTube videos. Amazon prime video also blocks us to watch many movies even after full subscription but Express VPN is there to watch any movies just try out different servers if specific server doesn't work for you. It works for many other streaming services like HBO NOW, Netflix, etc. It has potential to access many websites which are restricted by location. I am very happy to say that this VPN gets connected even at 15-20KB/s speed internet believe me it struggles to connect but gets connected. And it actually speed up our internet than our ISP provides. Their isn't a huge difference but little bit. Another best thing is this customers support. They reply within 12 hours sometimes but always within 24 hrs. More locations servers than other Vpns. This VPN is the first to have hidden services in the Tor browser. I am not paid but I have experienced all this so give it a review so new customers can get idea about it. Totally worth to subscribe.

Charles Cummings gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Have tried others, both cheaper and more expensive and I have to say ExpressVPN in my opinion tops them all. Have used it for the last year without any problems. Quick connect times and reliable IP shadowing. Has never failed me. Plan on sticking with them. You stay with what works.

Alfu Conteh gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Since I went Express VPN. I never look back. If you are using the internet without express VPN you are using the internet wrongly. Very secure and connection is real quick and actually made my internet speed a bit quicker I notice.

Deshan gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

ExpressVPN is the best vpn i ever used, I haveused like 8+ VPN services but they can't beat the speed and the reliability of ExpressVPN. ExpressVPN's iOS app is the only app which worked for my iphone 8 plus ,I am using ExpressVPN to protect my privacy online and get rid of geo restrictions!

Shannon Wood gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Excellent VPN. I use on my home network for full coverage. Also use on my cell when out and about.

Casanova gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I have had Express for the last several years that I have been in China. Honestly speaking, I probably would still not be in China without it. It literally helps me stay connected to the world outside of China. For all of the positives that China has going for it, a negative is that they are an isolated bubble; both linguistically (which is fine) and in terms of access. I use Whatsapp, Instagram, Facebook, etc to stay in touch with friends and family and literally without that, I wouldn't have been able to maintain the relationships that I have. Also whenever the cheap VPNs get throttled by the Great Firewall, Express is usually back up and running as soon as it gets hit. And the customer service and constant updates are probably the best in the VPN business. I am sure if it works great here, it works even more smoothly elsewhere. Keep up the good work!

Donald Balk gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

On any given day you have to ask yourself one big question - is the internet you are using safe? You log in with your favourite device or computer and hopefully nothing invades your digital space BUT without even noticing, things may be going on that you never see. Why live this way when you can do something about it. Express VPN should be your top choice to stop all the invisible digital predators that are out to get you. No question about it!
