This is a huge plus for a VPN service. And, they offer Unlimited bandwidth and military grade encryption (AES-256).
They have a huge network of 3000+ VPN servers that are optimized for fast connections. With a single subscription, you can connect five devices to ExpressVPN at the same time, regardless of platform (including virtual machines). You can install ExpressVPN on any number of devices, but only five devices can be connected at any one time.
