IPVanish claims to be the “fastest and fastest growing VPN service in the world.” I am not sure if that can be confirmed, but considering the fact that I follow several VPN providers and their activities, it is for sure true that IPVanish really keep on expanding and growing all the time.
In the last month only, since October 25th, they have added 7 new servers to their register, and that is quite impressive. The new servers added by IPVanish are located in:
- Mexico City, Mexico
- Las Vegas, United States
- Vancouver, Canada
- Paris, France
- Auckland, New Zealand
- Budapest, Hungary
- Jakarta, Indonesia
Again this means that if you are looking for an IP address in for example France, or maybe you are out traveling to the United States and want to safe securely as you use the open WiFi at your hotel, then you can easily use IPVanish and connect to the new or one of their other servers in the USA to enjoy high encryption and good speeds.
In addition to adding new servers, they have also updated their Windows VPN program. Here are the improvements and fixes that has been added in the new version of IPVanish VPN program for Windows.
