The new CyberGhost VPN: More power – less charges!
Permanent traffic flatrate for all CyberGhost VPN subscriptions
Right now, CyberGhost VPN is heading towards 2 Million users, getting more and more popular all over the world. The company started in 2004, in Germany, moved to Romania in 2011 and right now, our customers are spread all over the world. While in the beginning most of them came from Germany, today the biggest user-group is from US, followed by Germany, France, the Russian Federation and UK, but also by Countries like Pakistan, India, Indonesia or the Philippines. We are glad that our users gave us the chance to develop from a local service provider to an international company with more than 20 employees (and still growing).
CyberGhost VPN is still dedicated to one thing: We want to provide you with the best VPN-service that is legally and technically possible. And for that we decided to say goodbye to some old limitations in our service and introduce some new features:
Traffic flat rate: CyberGhost VPN has no longer a traffic limitation for the free- or promo-subscriptions, or for the paid services. That’s true for all our new subscribers, but also for all our existing users. No matter if you are a Classic-, Premium-, Premium Plus- or a Promo-User, we keep the service unlimited. In the next days, you will receive updates of our client and the online user control panel where you will no longer find a traffic overview. Say bye bye to the traffic limit!
Bandwidth: We will increase the bandwidth for all our paid users and decrease it for our free users. The new limitation for the paid users is very easy to get because there will be no artificial limitation anymore. The limit is in future related to the internet connection speed of the user on the one hand and on the other hand on the uplink of our VPN servers. Regarding the uplink-speed, we will try to provide you with a minimum or rather an average speed of 6 Mbit/s on a regular Premium-Server.
In future, we give everybody the possibility to access the web safe and secure by offering our free service with a 1 Mbit/s-limitation – that is enough speed to surf the web and to see videos in a web-optimized format.
Server locations: We want to make things easy in the future. All our paid users will have access to all locations where we run servers plus the guarantee that all paid users get also access to all servers we add during their contract period. Premium Plus users will have additional access to an extended server park with high security servers. These servers are especially configured for providing a higher security level (for example a 256bit encryption).
Because of the fact that our existing VIP-servers as high speed-only servers make no sense any longer since all users have unlimited bandwidth and since we optimize all server on speed, we change all existing VIP-servers settings to the new high security-settings.
Premium users can auto-connect to a server next to their location or they choose their server manually by selecting it from our server list. Free users will have access to a basic server park and get automatically connected.
Protocols: Our free service provides a basic protection for a user on his PC, but does not provide a 360 degrees solution for someone’s digital life. That’s what we want to offer, along with our paid plans – protect our costumers wherever they are, regardless which device they use. All paid subscriptions contain the necessary protocols to protect our users on PCs, Mobile Phones, Tablets and so on. We support OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec and PPTP.
On a Premium account you can connect to a single device at the same time, our Premium Plus subscriptions gives you the freedom to be online on up to 5 devices at the same time.
We decided also to leave out our Classic subscription and lower the prices for our updated Premium from 79,99 EUR to 49,99 EUR and our Premium Plus from 118,99 EUR to 79,99 EUR.
What happens with our old subscribers? Well, our existing users benefit from most of the changes. There will be no bandwidth and traffic limitation any longer. All paid users will get access to all our protocols like Open VPN, L2TP/IPSec and PPTP. Existing Premium Plus users will be updated to the new Premium Plus subscription.
We will gradually launch the changes until Friday and we are sure they will improve your whole internet-surfing experience.
