TLDR: HotSpot Shield has been named the fastest VPN on the web — and now, it’s also on sale at hundreds off its regular price.
Making the claim to being the world’s fastest VPN is no small boast. With dozens of VPN providers on the scene, it takes some serious firepower to be the one that allows users to blaze across the web faster than with anyone else.
However, HotSpot Shield ($89.99 for a 3-year subscription, 80 percent off, from TNW Deals) brought the receipts to back up the claims. In testing by Ookla, one of the preeminent sources for speed testing sources on the web, HotSpot Shield reigned supreme, besting competitors in both local and international testing two years in a row.
In fact, the returns were impressive, with HotSpot clocking speeds from 1.5 to 2 times faster than even its nearest competitors in testing around the globe.
Of course, this award-winning VPN protocol isn’t just about allowing users lightning-fast speed across the internet. A VPN is primarily about protection, so HotSpot Shield enlists military-grade 256-bit AES encryption to prevent hackers, malware, and phishing sites from tracking users online.
In addition to a network of more than 3,200 servers in over 80 countries worldwide providing access for safe and completely anonymous web traffic, HotSpot Shield also detects and blocks more than 3.5 million malicious phishing and spam sites from infecting your devices. Members get a HotSpot IP address to mask their actual IP address and surf anonymously from anywhere.
With over 650 million global users, this is also one of the most accessible VPN providers around, with CNET even calling HotSpot Shield one of the easiest VPNs to set up and use. With unrestricted access to the web, HotSpot users can bypass international content restrictions, streaming sites and content providers like Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, and others from any location without getting held up by firewalls and other blockers.
Meanwhile, HotSpot Shield promises to never throttle or control access and keep no logs of any user’s activity, ensuring your web travels can never be tracked or monitored.
Three years of HotSpot VPN Premium service, access that would usually cost over $450, is now available at 80 percent off that price with the current offer, just $89.99 while this deal lasts.
