Picking a suitable VPN isn’t an easy decision, even the highest rated VPN service might not be exactly what you’re looking for. To try and help, we’re comparing two VPNs that seem very different in reputation but that doesn’t mean one is necessarily better than the other. We’ll be comparing NordVPN, widely regarded as one of the best VPNs in the world, even featured in our top VPN selection, against Anonine, which might not be in the same league but is still a great VPN in its own right. Both are great choices for P2P users but while NordVPN has the pedigree, Anonine has some surprising advantages over its more prestigious competitor. Maybe it’s not such a simple choice, after all.

From the sunny Seychelles comes Anonine, made by Edelino Commerce, with its servers located in Sweden – a favorite destination for VPN servers – meaning Anonine can retain minimal user logs. Anonine has been going since 2009 and aims to offer a fast and safe system that keeps P2P users in mind. 150 servers in over 35 countries might not be the largest number but Anonine does have servers specifically for the use of torrents, as well as for streaming BBC iPlayer and Netflix. Despite having fewer servers compared to NordVPN, Anonine’s servers are generally very quick which is great when you also get to use five simultaneous connections and have unlimited bandwidth. Anonine is also available on an unlimited number of devices which is made even better when you see it also supports Apple TV, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One as well as the usual operating systems.
You can get Anonine for as little as $3.99 per month with a 12-month contract. Unlike other VPNs you won’t feel like you’re getting ripped off if you prefer to use Anonine for a shorter period of time; Anonine’s three-month price is $5.99, and a single month is just $6.99. If you have a fear of commitment, Anonine is the VPN for you. Sign up and you’ll have seven days to try out the full package and, if you’re not satisfied, you can claim your money back risk-free.
Since its inception in 2012, NordVPN has been one of the heavy hitters in the VPN market and it’s widely-regarded as one of the best available. Having its headquarters based in Panama means that NordVPN’s no logs policy holds up when coupled with Panama’s lenient laws, not to mention the excellent feature of double-encryption. NordVPN also has a massive 5,100 servers from 61 countries with which few other services can compete. Those servers, including some designed especially for P2P sharing, provide users with unlimited bandwidth for six simultaneous connections although server speed is not always the quickest.
NordVPN offers excellent device support beyond just desktop and mobile apps but also has browser extensions for Google Chrome and Firefox. Prices start from just $2.99 for a three-year subscription and that comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Users can pay with credit card, PayPal, and Bitcoin amongst other standard payment methods.
Some may think it’s a no brainer of a decision to choose NordVPN – it’s cheaper, more secure and a more accomplished overall product. It’s very true that NordVPN is exceptionally safe, and at just $2.99 per month is also very cheap. However, to get the excellent package so cheap does mean a long, three-year commitment. A lot can change in that time so choosing a faster VPN like Anonine and paying just $3.99 for a third of the subscription time might be the better choice for users who are still not completely certain about what they want in a VPN.
