If you are looking for an inexpensive VPN service for anonymous internet use, cheaper Netflix streaming or for other reasons, RUSVPN could be for you. Contrary to its name, this provider for the Virtual Private Network (VPN) does not come from Russia, but from the island state of Dominica. The "RUS" stands for Reliable, Unlimited and Secure, which in German means something like Reliable, Limitless and Safe. A subscription to the service for use on the Apple Mac, Windows or Linux PC, iOS or Android smartphone or as a browser extension is available from € 2,99 per month.
I was able to negotiate a voucher code for you with RUSVPN. If you enter this during the payment process, you will receive a 20% discount on the regular prices. The code is:
Here in the screenshot you can see where the code has to be entered. You first have to open the corresponding field using the arrow.
There are some VPN test sites reporting on RUSVPN and they seem to have come out of only good things so far. RUSVPN only had its market launch in 2019 and is therefore still quite fresh. The big advantage: RUSVPN is unknown, not very crowded and services like Netflix have not yet checked this VPN provider and therefore not yet blocked. There is also criticism (there is no server in Austria), but that is "complaining at a high level". With over 330 servers worldwide, you have a large selection. You can certainly get over Austria there. If you the world's lowest prices for Netflix look, you want to see the servers somewhere else anyway;)
The price you are charged depends entirely on the subscription you book with the VPN provider. If you take out a 3-year subscription, you can enjoy the lowest price: only 2,99 euros per month. The price for the 1-year subscription is 4,99 euros, which is still 50% cheaper than the monthly subscription. At 9,99 euros per month, this has a clearer impact. Compared to NordVPN, a service that is also considered cheap, these are even lower prices. So all in all, RUSVPN not only seems new, but also good and cheap. Just take a look: Here to the provider - and don't forget the code "APFELOT20"!
