StrongDNS Review Conclusion
Compared to other Smart DNS services, StrongDNS is a bit more expensive at $5 per month. Based on our experience testing the service, we can attest to its reliability in accessing geo-restricted media or content primarily from the US and UK. StrongDNS need more improvement though – we experienced some difficulties in making the service work, but thanks to a competitive support team, we were able to run StrongDNS smoothly.
StrongVPN is an amazing VPN service, and we can say the same thing for its Smart DNS counterpart and we’d recommend the use of both services to anyone looking to bypass online restrictions and censorship.
