Blazing-fast speeds are something that all VPNs promise, and most of them are fast enough for common use cases like high-definition video streaming. CyberGhost, on the other hand, has some consistently fast speeds across most of its network. CyberGhost is also good on privacy and anonymity, and offers an attractive user interface that will appeal to most, especially novice VPN users.

Features and services

One of the more common interfaces for VPNs is a map with location markers. Click the location marker and you’re automatically connected to a VPN server in that country.

CyberGhost takes a different approach on Windows. First it wants to help you decide on the purpose for which you need a VPN such as regular web browsing, unblocking geo-restricted streaming sites (not including Netflix), torrenting anonymously, choosing a specific server in the CyberGhost network, or automatically protecting a Wi-Fi connection you use often.
