UltraVPN provides a free OpenVPN with the standard off the shelf Open source configuration. The protocol is enabled by the OS of your computer as UltraVPN does not provide any software of its own so it’s not user friendly. UltraVPN has a tiny network of servers (France and USA) with no server switching and one IP! The standard OpenVPN application does not protect against the dropping of your internet connection (and is therefore highly insecure) and is missing all the basic features. UltraVPN’s stated privacy sounds good but as a French company with French servers, appearances may prove deceptive. The recent enforcement of the French Law Hadopi has internet users deeply concerned as to how to comply with the law and not be spied on by the French government. The parent company of UltraVPN, Lynanda, is a French company that creates software to log and report Skype traffic for corporations and governments (dictatorships). Lynanda writes it provides “A universal software able to detect and filter Skype and P2P traffic”. The French Law is clearly at odds with UltraVPN and it’s odd that Lynanda would be in such a business unless they were already compliant with French Law. There is something amiss here and we think that Lynanda is providing this free service for a price. The price may be that your data goes to the French government (who share everything with the Americans or vice versa as they only have a server in the USA). I would stay away from this one.
Pros: Not a one
Cons: • Does not protect your originating IP if the internet connection fails. All your applications will be switched to your local IP and you may not know it – an OpenVPN problem that is fixed by the better VPN services. • No real privacy with French servers and the enforcement of the new French laws • Parent company, Lynanda, makes software that is used to log and cache Skype for dictatorships worldwide. • No server switching, if you want multiple countries, you have to buy multiple plans. • Software standard OpenVPN with NO features and user un-friendly & inconvenient • No automation on start up • No automatic choice of fastest server (lowest latency) • Dynamic IPs and Static IPs not available • No support • Does not support IPv6
