Coming from the Netherlands, GooseVPN is a new VPN service provider that presents itself in a stylish way with attractive offers, such as free trial, money-back guarantee, P2P sharing and OpenVPN. In this review, we will explore the different features provided by GooseVPN. Scroll down for more details.
GooseVPN offers 3 flexible packages to meet everyone’s needs. There are 2 different plans to which users can pay on monthly basis: Unlimited which costs $12.99 per month and Limited (50GB) which costs $2.99 per month. GooseVPN also offers an unlimited bandwidth annual package for $4.99 per month.
Sadly, anonymous payment methods like: Bitcoin are not accepted. However, there are other payment options provided, including: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Paypal, giropay and iDeal. We prefer anonymous payment methods to regular ones since they are more secure and reliable.
Free Trial & Refund Policy
GooseVPN offers 30-day free trial which we find quite generous and enough to thoroughly evaluate the service.
As for refund policy, a 30-day money-back guarantee is offered for new subscribers if they have used less than 100MB of their bundle as stated on their website:
“All new GOOSE VPN accounts have a no-questions-asked 30-day moneyback guarantee if less than 100MB has been used. If a customer cancels their GOOSE VPN service or a package of GOOSE VPN services, they will have their payment refunded.”
Being based in the Netherlands is one of the best things about GooseVPN because the Netherlands is one of the most liberal countries when it comes to internet privacy and security making it a paradise for VPN service providers. When it comes to privacy, GooseVPN does not keep logs whatsoever. This includes your online activity, username, password, emails, DNS-lookups, IP address, etc.
“When you are using GOOSE VPN service, GOOSE VPN gathers information about actual bandwidth usage per user account. GOOSE VPN does not track, collect or store any information at the servers of the GOOSE VPN server network”.
In this section, we will discuss the different features provided by GooseVPN, such as: security, encryption, server network, bandwidth, etc.
Security & Encryption
GooseVPN uses 256-bit AES encryption with SHA-256 to support multiple protocols, such as: OpenVPN, IKEv2, L2TP/IPsec and PPTP. Though OpenVPN is known for being difficult to block by ISPs, some countries (e.g: Egypt) have managed to block it. It requires a double layer of encryption and a set of sophisticated algorithms to be able to be completely anonymous online.
Servers & Bandwidth
GooseVPN has a decent network of more than 59 servers spread across 30+ important locations worldwide, including: USA, UK, GERMANY, NETHERLANDS, SLOVENIA, ISRAEL, SINGAPORE, RUSSIA, NORWAY, CANADA, INDIA, SPAIN, SWEDEN and many more.
As for bandwidth, Goose annual premium VPN package offers unlimited bandwidth and so is one of its monthly plan. On the other hand, a cheaper monthly plan is limited to 50GB per month.
GooseVPN is compatible with 4 main platforms: Windows, Mac OS, iOS and Android. The software app can run on various devices, such as: desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets, routers and smart TVs (e.g: Kodi).
Other features include P2P sharing and servers optimised for media streaming.
