We put these VPNs to the test to find out which is the best!
Both Vypr and ExpressVPN fared very well in our speed tests with ExpressVPN winning the showdown with slightly faster speeds. The two VPNs connected to Netflix and streamed shows without any lags or buffering issues.

Speed determines how fast content uploads, so if you're torrenting or streaming, you want the speed to be somewhat identical to your regular internet speed. Since a VPN encrypts your data, it usually takes a bit longer to send your data back and forth, which can slow down your connection. However, if your ISP deliberately slows down your connection (also known as throttling) a VPN might increase your internet speed. Testing a VPN is somewhat pointless because new servers pop up and affect speed. Your speed can also differ according to your location, so your speed test might not match ours. Having said that, we tested the speed in numerous locations to provide you with the average.
Vypr VPN doesn’t work with third party servers and they operate over 700 servers in 65 countries. ExpressVPN has over 2,000 servers in 90+ countries.
|Dynamic Server Switching
The ratio of servers to countries is an important factor to look at when choosing a VPN. Only paying attention to location or number of servers can get you in trouble. More servers generally means faster speeds, but if VPN X has a few more servers than VPN Y but twice as many users, VPN X will typically have slower speeds. Ideally, you want a VPN that has a lot of servers in every location. This way you won’t have to worry that server/country that you want will be overburdened and running slow
ExpressVPN wins the support category hands down. With a responsive 24/7 live chat, ticket system, and tutorials you should be able to find the answer to question quickly. VyprVPN claims to have 24/7 live chat, but when we tested it we were told to send an Email instead. They also have a ticket system which can take some time until you receive a response.
|Email Response Time
We personally test the customer support team of every VPN we review. This means asking technical question through the live chat feature (where applicable) and measuring the response time for email questions. Whether you need to connect to a specific server, change your security protocol, or configure a VPN on your router, finding a VPN with quality customer support should be important to you.
ExpressVPN is very easy to set up and use on multiple devices. The VPN will offer to connect you to a recommended server based on your location, but you can just as easily choose to connect to the location of your choice. If you wish to change from the automatic security protocol just click on the settings button and you’ll see the complete list of protocols to choose from.
