On testing the speed on a London server, we observed that the network provides a download speed of 8.88 mb/s and an upload speed of 0.99 mb/s. The ping rate is 35ms. On testing for DNS leaks, SwitchVPN passed the tests with flying colors. This network does not have any speed or bandwidth limit. On top of that, it also allows simultaneous connections to up to 10 devices.
SwitchVPN allows P2P downloads and file sharing. It also allows VOIP and unlimited switching of servers, which we love.
We were highly impressed by the superb support team of this VPN network. The live 24X7 chat support is extremely handy for solving both major and minor queries related to the service of the network. The forum discussions are also very informative, thereby providing a complete idea about everything that you want to know about the VPN. You can also drop a mail to the network. The professionals will address this mail within 12-24 hours of receiving it.

In the news
According to the reviews from reddit and bestvpn, SwitchVPN is a decent network with great customer support, superb encryptions and high speeds. However, some customers had minor glitches with the PPTP windows which are very basic.
All in all, SwitchVPN is indeed one of the best VPN networks with high speed, amazing reliability and consistent customer support. However, if you want stringent anonymity, other VPNs like HideMyAss or VPN.AC can serve you better.
