My Expat Network

My Expat Network

My expat network is a VPN provider aimed squarely at the expat community. This makes it perfect for those who want to stream content from abroad, but less secure than some of the hardcore privacy focused VPNs.

They have excellent support that consists of an FAQ, help center with an active forum, troubleshooting guides, etc, as well as a support ticket system with well trained staff that reply quickly.

My Expat Network integrates seamlessly with Sabai OS.

My Expat Network pricing and Packages

Being aimed at the expat market, the service has the option to unblock content from one of nine European countries plus the USA, Canada, or Australia, from around $5.50 per month if you sign up for a year, or $8 for all available countries.

Logging, security, and privacy

My Expat Network uses OpenVPN with 128-bit encryption for PC, Mac, and routers, and L2TP for mobiles.

This level of encryption might seem low to privacy enthusiasts worried about being spied on by the CIA, but most people who simply want to mask their IP to get around geo-content blocks are well catered for, as the lower encryption allows for faster content delivery.

They do keep logs of basic connection details and bandwidth, so again, anyone who needs to use a privacy system in a place where government snooping is an issue may want to look elsewhere. The name does suggest, of course, that the service is aimed at people wanting to stream content from their home country whilst abroad.

Server locations

As mentioned above, My Expat Network allows users to either pay for a single location, or to all available ones.

The locations are:

  • Australia

  • Canada

  • Germany

  • Denmark

  • Spain

  • France

  • Italy

  • Netherlands

  • Norway

  • Sweden

  • UK

  • USA
