FastestVPN is a company located in Cayman Island. Although they are new in the market, they have features that make it worthy to be listed among the top players in the industry of VPNs. These features include NAT Firewall, AdBlocker, Malware protection, P2P optimized servers, Multi login among others. FastestVPN offers all of the top-rated services that are expected of an industry leader.
FastestVPN is compatible with MacOS, Windows, iOS, Android, Linux, and Chromebook. Also, it is compatible with different Kodi and routers. You simply click on the specific one you want and download the installation file. For mobile users, they have native apps on Google Play Store and iOS. Additionally, FastestVPN supports PlayStation 4, Apple TV and Xbox. Apart from having a variety of apps on almost all major platforms, it can be configured with a router and be used with Kodi, Roku, Xbox, PS4 etc.
The FastestVPN account can support up to 5 devices connected at the same time.
They have servers located in over 21 countries, they also have several specialized servers for point to point (P2P) connections e.g. torrents. If you are using VPN for simple tasks such as hiding your IP, torrenting anonymously and getting access to restricted sites, then this is a good choice for you, otherwise, if you require several different IP addresses then this would not be the best choice for you.

For those who love downloading, this is good news for you because FastestVPN does not cap bandwidth. Also, they allow usage of their service with torrent apps, they have servers specially dedicated to connections like torrents. This makes such torrent connections to be fast, secure and private, among other benefits that are not limited to the ones named above. FastestVPN is specially optimized for P2P sharing of files. Additionally, they offer unlimited bandwidth and fast connection speed thus improving p2p file sharing and torrenting experience by two folds.

FastestVPN has three subscription plans, that is monthly, annually and every two years. The monthly plan is $10, the yearly plan is charged at $35.95 meaning you are charged $2.99 per month, which even drops further when you subscribe to a two-year plan of $39.95 which translates to $1.66 per month. These plans suggest savings of over 83%. They are also promoting a five-year plan which will allow users to pay $1 per month, this plan is, however, temporary and it is not yet clear for how long it will remain open.
