About Torguard


It’s easy to see why NordVPN are one of the top VPN providers in the field. With a no nonsense client, fast servers and competitive pricing they have to be in any ones top 5 possible solutions. There is little to fault about their service aside from a few niggles like the battery intensive android app and sluggish connection times. Based in Panama outside the reach of 5 eyes with a comprehensive and independently audited no logging policy. Additionally with crypto currency payments, privacy is is clearly high on the agenda

Torguard_Devices 

The clients don’t offer you all of the connectivity options that maybe some of the more niche providers do. It’s OpenVPN:AES-256GCM on the windows like and IkEv2/IPSec on mac & iOS. This simplicity is great for the average user who just wants to log in and get the best possible encryption available today.

We would like to see an option of IKEv2/IPSec on the android client as the app is currently very battery intensive. Fortunately this worked around by using a client like StrongSwan which utilises IKEv2/IPSec and significantly reduces the strain on the phone.

Pricing

TorGuards basic price points are all competitive with the competition. None of the plans appear to be over priced with the intention of getting you to buy into a longer cheaper contract. Moreover, you can use our promo code AVS1150 to get an additional 50% off for life. Torguard offer these promo codes all year round and their addition make them one of the cheapest VPN’s on the market.

Security & Privacy

NordVPN_Macos

Torguard have all the connection options you could need. OpenVPN:AES256GCM/CBC, AES128:GCM/CBC & Blowfish. Along with L2TP, IKEv2/IPSec, PPTP, STunnel, OpenConnect & Proxies

Torguard two types of server to connect to

  • Stealth – During tests TorGuards’s stealth servers were unable to bypass a corporate firewall.
  • Standard –

Other key features that you should find all services provide are

  • Killswitch – activating the killswitch should block all internet traffic from your device. We tested this on both android and Windows without any issue
  • Anti Malware – Cybersec is NordVPN’s solution. Its as a part anti malware, Ad blocker and will block you device from participating in a DDoS attack.

One thing we would have liked to see is some kind of restricted app feature to allow the customer to bypass the VPN for certain apps or executables

Testing the DNS resulted in no leaks

Speed

nordvpn_speed

We tested servers in the UK and Netherlands. Also tested were Malaysia, Spain, Romania, Iceland and Switzerland for their respective privacy laws. You can find our reasons for choosing these countries here. We did two sessions of speed tests over a couple of evenings and on both occasions we struggled to connect to at least one of the servers on this list.

Switzerland NordVPN_Switzerland

On the whole on our connection Torguard performed pretty well speed wise. We did however struggle connecting to some servers. One evening we couldnt connect to the netherlands and on another it was Iceland. These connection issues tend to resolve themselves quickly.
