    UltraVPN Review

    UltraVPN is a great provider, despite being a new VPN service.

    UltraVPN is a relatively new VPN service managed by the UK-based Network Protect. Founded in August 2018, this service has grown explosively. Today the company has more than 35 employees and is growing rapidly.

    UltraVPN is the average service among various VPN services. UltraVPN offers a robust service but has yet to offer sophisticated services like NordVPN and ExpressVPN. However, it still is excellent for accessing oversea content from Japan, and even for obtaining Japanese content while overseas.

    More so, in terms of price, UltraVPN is much cheaper than these other services. UltraVPN offers a more robust pricing than most VPN services on the market today. This test looks at the key elements of UltraVPN, including the level of server speed, number of servers, quality of servers in each country, security level, ease of use, price, etc.

    Speed

    It is normal for speed to reduce when using all VPNs. This is because, to change the IP address, all traffic has to go through an external router before it reaches the internet. This affects the time it takes to download files, stream movies on AbemaTV for overseas and Netflix in the US, open websites, etc.  For this reason, it is important to keep the speed reduction as small as possible, especially when streaming content overseas.

    UltraVPN scored well in our speed test. According to our tests in Western Europe, the speed reduction of this service was about 15%. UltraVPN passed this test because the speed reduction of this size is an uncommon phenomenon.

    In addition to the level of speed, the time it takes to connect to different servers is important. Many VPN services, especially free services, take a very long time to connect to the server. There is some time lag between clicking “Connect” to the server and actually establishing the connection to the server.

    UltraVPN scored relatively high in our tests in this regard. When it comes to speed, ExpressVPN is perhaps the best; still, UltraVPN has a relatively good score compared to other paid VPN services. Thus, with UltraVPN, you can be sure that there will be no lagging when streaming Japanese content from anywhere in the world.

    Security and privacy

    For logs, UltraVPN-owned Network Protect LLC. is based in the US and UK. This might not necessarily be a good sign. This is because these countries have strict surveillance rules.

    However, UltraVPN claims that it does not log user traffic and does not leak user data. VPN services that log traffic are not useful because users use VPN services to avoid monitoring.

    We felt that UltraVPN provided insufficient information about their logging policy. I didn’t find any specific information about it even though I didn’t log it. I felt that this is so important that it should be made clearer.

    Regarding security, UltraVPN has a solid security function. It provides the same level of 256-AES encryption as military security in many countries. Further, it also provides a kill switch that works excellently, making sure that you can use your IP address even if your VPN connection is interrupted and your internet connection is lost. Any time this happens, you will not be exposed temporarily.

    Also, the UltraVPN connection was strong. This means that the connection will not be interrupted after connecting to the VPN service. A weak connection is a common factor for many VPN providers, which is inconvenient and has a negative impact on user security and privacy. Regardless of the distance of your connection to servers in Japan or outside Japan, you can rest assured of reliable connection.

    Servers in each country

    Different VPN providers have a unique number of servers that they have in each country. One of the free VPN providers has servers in just 5 countries, an insufficient number on all accounts. NordVPN, the top server tester, has more than 6000 servers in more than 60 countries. The most important thing here is not the number of VPN servers, but the quality of the servers. The two factors, however, are interrelated.

    UltraVPN has servers in many countries

    UltraVPN obtained an average score in this test. UltraVPN has servers in 55 countries, surpassing the average number, which is 30. These servers cover different continents of the world. When it comes to the number of servers, UltraVPN has a lot of servers in different countries, but it’s also no match for NordVPN or ExpressVPN. However, UltraVPN makes up for this with its cost. Also, the large number of servers is not as important as the quality of the connection and streaming speed. On these two counts, the quality of service provided by UltraVPN should be sufficient for users both within Japan and even those streaming Japanese content from outside of the country.

    UltraVPN Review

    Pros

    • Effective Firewall
    • Has apps for all devices
    • 256-bit AES encryption

    Cons

    • Fewer servers than other providers.

    Price

    UltraVPN is cheap. Most VPN services offer different prices depending on how long you use the service, UltraVPN also offers this. Prices vary depending on your 1-month, 6-month, or 1-year purchasing plan.

    A one-month purchase plan costs about $6.60 a month, and a six-month purchase plan costs about $5.50 a month. But if you choose a one-year purchasing plan, the price will drop to about 3.30 per month. The price becomes even lower with long-term purchases.

    UltraVPN has pretty cheap prices

    UltraVPN is cheaper than other services. Monthly subscription plans for the best services on the market, such as NordVPN and ExpressVPN, cost around $12 per month. Even if you choose a long-term subscription plan, it will still be more expensive than UltraVPN. The price of UltraVPN is a big profit for users who want to save money.

    UltraVPN, like other paid providers, offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. You can always request a money-back during the period if you are not satisfied with the service. This is reassuring.

    Ease of Use

    UltraVPN’s design for Windows is great and is similar to many other VPN services.  To make use of it, just pick a different server from the list and turn it on and off. Click ‘Settings’ to configure various advanced feature options. You can also choose different servers for different purposes, such as video streaming or torrenting (P2P).

    The ease of use of UltraVPN is at a stable level. This service doesn’t have advanced settings like NordVPN or ExpressVPN, but it offers more than you need.

    Our conclusions are the same for apps for iPhone and Android. The design and user functionality of UltraVPN suits most users, but it lacks the most advanced user features. UltraVPN’s apps for mobile devices also work well.

    Conclusion

    UltraVPN showed good results in our tests. This service is relatively new. Nonetheless, it has already grown to be able to offer services that include high speed, good security protocols, relatively good usability and features, at relatively low cost. UltraVPN is recommended for users who need a powerful VPN service at a low price. If you want to use the best service at a slightly higher price, we recommend more established services such as ExpressVPN and NordVPN.
