proXPN and Private Internet Access VPN are two of the most famous VPN providers in the present-day market. While proXPN is a Netherlands-based company that provides two-tier VPN services, Private Internet Access is a major US-based VPN company operated by the London Trust Media Inc. In general, they both are involved in the same business, but differ a lot in terms of their quality of service, features and pricing.
With servers located in 7 countries (four in the US and one each in Singapore, UK and the Netherlands) and several IPs, proXPN offers OpenVPN and PPTP connections through their economically-priced plans. The service works perfectly on all major operating systems, including Windows XP3 or newer, Mac OS X 10.6 and above, iOS 4+ and Android 4.0+. It makes use of a 2048-bit encryption key and a 512-bit encryption tunnel for secure data transfer.
On the other hand, Private Internet Access provides complete access to over 461 servers in more than 9 countries, in order to provide secure OpenVPN, PPTP and IPSEC/ L2TP connections to users at affordable rates. It is fully compatible with all versions of Windows XP and older, Ubuntu 12.04, Android 2.3 and 4.0+, Mac OS X 10.6+, and iOS.
proXPN provides a free of cost account to those willing to opt for unlimited web access via a US server, at a speed of 300 Kbps and with limited features. The premium account starts from $6.95 per month and comes with a 7-day risk-free trial offer, with unlimited speeds and IPs for anonymous internet access.
Private Internet Access does not offer any free of cost plans. The basic plans start from $6.95 per month and for those with a higher budget, the company offers a plan worth $35.95 for 6 months and $39.95 for a year. All the features and access to all the 461 servers is included in all the plans.
On the whole, though both the service providers vary in terms of features, they follow a very similar pricing policy. Therefore, picking up a winner from the two would have to be solely decided on the quality of service offered by both the companies, which would become apparent only after some time of usage. So, think wisely and choose the best VPN provider for secure and anonymous web access.
