Sometimes cliches get things spot on. And we just have to look at examples like weekends, birthday cakes, Mad Men and the Beatles to see that all good things must indeed come to an end.
And now, in the world of VPNs, we can add Surshark’s ridiculously cheap pricing to the list.
For months we’ve marvelled at how the VPN provider has managed to keep prices so low while maintaining quality so high – a fully functioning and feature-packed virtual private network for the effective price of less than $2/£2 per month. But the company has now confirmed that come Monday, September 7, the cost will finally rise.
The new pricing hasn’t yet been confirmed and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that Surfshark will keep the costs down below its direct competitors like NordVPN (from $3.49/pm) and ExpressVPN (from $6.67/pm). But without a shadow of a doubt this is one of the most handsome VPN deals out there – an eye-catching price from a reliable service that we really rate.

There’s a reason why we rank Surfshark as our second best VPN provider in the world, and we’ll tell you more about why below. But the fact it has a 30-day money-back guarantee and offers unlimited devices per one account, makes it undeniably excellent value. $1.99/£1.55 per month is a tiny amount to sort out your next two years of VPN needs, cybersecurity and unblocking geo-restricted content. Offer ends: Sunday, September 6
Is Surfshark a good VPN provider?
Surfshark has topped our guide to the best cheap VPN providers for a while now, and we suspect it will continue to do so even after the price hike. Yes, a lot of that is down to the very clear reason of its pricing, but it wouldn’t be top of that list if it didn’t have the quality to back things up.
If your concern is streaming, we’ve found that Surfshark easily unblocks Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Hulu and plenty more from overseas, as well as a multitude of sports streaming services. It has 1,700 servers in more than 60 countries meaning there’s a whole new world of content for you.
If privacy is your main reason for a VPN, the provider has plenty of technical features such as AES-256 encryption, OpenVPN and IKEv2 support, a no-logs policy, and a kill switch to protect you if your connection drops.
And one of Surfshark’s key plus points is its sheer usability. In our testing we found that it has a really straightforward, friendly interface that makes it easy to install and operate. And, if you do run in to trouble, 24/7 live chat support is on hand to solve your problems.
