And by the way, PIA doesn't keep logs. The government can subpoena DMCA notices all day long, if there's nothing to hand them then there's nothing for the government to see. Google is your friend.

The negative here is their being based in the United States, but they do a hell of a job in making it near impossible to get you. Full excerpt from torrent freak earlier this year:

Private Internet Access
1. We absolutely do not maintain any VPN logs of any kind. We utilize shared IP addresses rather than dynamic or static IPs, so it is not possible to match a user to an external IP. These are some of the many solutions we have implemented to enable the strongest levels of anonymity amongst VPN services.

2. Our company currently operates out of the United States with gigabit gateways in the US, Canada, Germany, France, UK, Switzerland, Sweden, the Netherlands and Romania. We chose the US, since it is one of the few countries without a mandatory data retention law. We will not share any information with third parties without a valid court order. With that said, it is impossible to match a user to any activity on our system since we utilize shared IPs and maintain absolutely no logs.

3. We are in compliance with DMCA as all companies, world-wide, must be. We have proprietary technology and an experienced legal team which allows us to comply without any risk to our users.

4. We accept many payment methods directly, including PayPal, CC, Google, Amazon, Bitcoin, Liberty Reserve, OKPay, and CashU. Further, we would like to encourage our users to use an anonymous e-mail and pay with Bitcoins to ensure even higher levels of anonymity should it be required. We only store the minimal information required to provide customers refunds.

Any comment on their speeds? I have FIOS and am looking for an inexpensive one that isn't going to limit my speeds too horribly.

So what would this company's response be if they were contacted by an agency or copyright holder asking for a user's ip? Would their response be "we don't log user ip addresses so we can't provide the information" or "we can give you 20 ip addresses but can't tell you which one used our service at a particular time"

Correct. They are not the only one's that do this. Because the US doesn't have a set laws for data retention, they don't have to keep logs if they choose not to.


I have their yearly plan. They work pretty well.

I'm not noticing any significant slowdown, torrents run at near full speed. It's a really good service so far, been on it for a week. The only downside (as mentioned) is Gmail, Hotmail, etc. get pissy about logins from the same IP for multiple people so they don't let you in when it's turned on (at least from within Outlook).

Why I'm still not choosing to invest in it. It skyrocketed in price, on what is practically a virtual stock market not controlled by any real world laws of currency fluctuation. It is scary unstable for it to skyrocket like that as a CURRENCY, so I am not touching it until it starts to stabilize.

Looks like Private Internet Access is operate out of USA.

In May 2011, the “Protecting Children from Internet Pornographers Act of 2011” (H.R. 1981), which would require retention of such traffic data, was introduced in the House of Representatives.
Promoted as a way to crack down on child pornography, H.R. 1981 uses the potential abuse of children as a pretext to order Internet companies to spy on users, and force ISPs to retain data about innocent Internet subscribers in the hopes that it might one day be useful to law enforcement.
Need to keep track of what's going on in Congress to make sure they don't pass anything that force VPN services to keep logs.

Based on this statement alone, I'd be worried about the accuracy of anything this company claims. Confused

Thanks. I was paying month to month for it for the last 8 months. I should have switched to a year a while ago but wanted to try it out and just never bothered. My renewal day for the subscription was tomorrow so I got my full use out of the month.

Excellent service by the way.
I use their app, I've been having some issues with the killswitch not working though but only from this last update.
I also had to change my connection type from UDP to TCP because it would only go for a few hours. I've had it on for days at a time without issue now.

I've used these guys for about 5-6 months now. I live in GA and connect to the FL server. My ISP is Charter and I usually speed test between 50-60 Mbps on average without VPN enabled. When speed testing to the same ATL servers when connected, I'm still able to hit 45+ Mbps.

I held off on the update due to the Killswitch issues you mentioned. I run it on my media server along with Peerblock whenever downloading stuff.
