I recently spoke to a very nice sales support person at Invisible Browsing VPN. The subject of service improvement came up. Though not mind-blowing, 2017 was a pretty good year for ibVPN, and I was curious what they have in store for 2018. It sounds like they’re planning on being a bit more ambitious, which is a good thing. Here are some of the service improvements and new features we can expect.
One of the most significant things coming to ibVPN is support for OpenVPN in their Mac and iOS client software. Being a Mac user myself, this is something that has been noticeably lacking. In addition to this, expect performance improvements and bug fixes across the board. Better device compatibility for the Android app is also happening.
Online Freedom for All
Based on feedback from customers (and their own belief in true online freedom), Invisible Browsing VPN is introducing a brand new protocol called StealthVPN.
StealthVPN is specifically designed to bypass VPN restrictions implemented by countries like China, Iran, Turkey, UAE, etc… It will work by disguising VPN traffic as regular internet traffic, making it much harder (and hopefully impossible) for national firewalls to block it out. VPN providers have had mixed results with implementing these types of technologies, so we’ll just have to wait and see how well ibVPN’s solution works.
Servers, Servers, Servers
In all my tests, download and upload performance has never come up as an issue for ibVPN. Speeds match and often exceed those of larger, more established competitors. However, reliability could use some improvement and that’s what Invisible Browsing VPN’s technical staff will be focusing on this year.
You can also expect the addition of more servers in the most popular locations, but at this time there are no plans to add new countries. I don’t feel like that’s a huge deal though. The currently supported 47 countries should be more than adequate for the vast majority of users.
More Streaming Options
ibVPN already does an outstanding job of opening up geo-blocked content for many locations around the world. As I write this, over 300 streaming channels are available for viewing (Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, etc…). In 2018, expect the addition of dozens of new viewing options.
Even Better Support
I have always found Invisible Browsing VPN’s support to be one of the best. They’re friendly and, much more importantly, helpful. But, according to my source, that’s something ibVPN still wants to improve on. Kudos to them for not just sitting on their laurels.
For their small team size, delivering on the above list will be a good amount of work. But, it’s achievable. I consider ibVPN to be the little engine that could, always punching above their weight. I have no doubt they will not only reach all these goals but surpass them.
As an aside, Invisible Browsing VPN is soon turning eight years old. Happy birthday! As a “thank you” to their existing and potential future customers, they’re running a 69% to 78% off sale on all their plans. You can take a look how ibVPN stacks up against other VPN providers on the homepage. If you have been thinking of trying their service (you do get a 15-day money back guarantee), this is typically their best sale of the year.
