NordVPN Special offer

Recommended Posts

Guys NordVPN has a special deal on offer for anyone wanting a very fast secure VPN service. I used to use IPVanish but NordVPN is a lot more secure but usually at a way higher price. However at the moment they are offering a 72% discount on a 2 year deal. Plus a 30 day money back guarantee.

I've bitten the bullet myself as my IPVanish subscription is nearly up. Seems very fast and smooth.

So if anyone fancies giving it a go the deal is here, and what they offer detailed here.

Anyway I thought it may be useful.

Looks interesting!

I'm still not convinced of the need for VPN- what do you consider the advantages?

I've thought about the IP Address tracing issues, but as I'm on a standard BT Business BB plan with a dynamic IP address, my IP address changes every few days anyway.

Basically I don't trust any country (even our own) not to watch my on-line activities. HTTPS is great, but I will not be geofenced or spied on at all so I use a VPN (especially for online transactions. 

So far testing is looking good, download speeds are a bit variable, last night I was getting 1.8 MB/S, usually in Opera I get about 2.8 MB/S, but this morning with NordVPN I got 5.8 MB/S, so a lot better. The testing will continue!

I've just bought a little VPN router to play with, I wonder if this can be configured with it. I'll have a look later. Cheers D.

Yep they have options to cover most systems, so likely it will work well enough!"

I must remember to do it, house & garden maintenance has been filling my time lately. One year I'd just like to sit in the garden! Lol

In the end guys I had a faire few speed issues with the service and have requested the 30 day money back guarantee. I'm now going to stick with IPVanish.

Yeah a great pity. Mind you for a lot of everyday work the VPN within Opera works well enough and it is free.

Fair point, I do have the Opera VPN installed but don't use it a great deal.

I use it daily, if fact it is turned on 99% of the time. I do not like being snooped on.
