Seedboxes.cc VPN Review
All seedboxes include a complimentary VPN service in order to be able to browse the web anonymously. All you need is a VPN client installed and configured in order to establish a secure and encrypted connection to our servers. Once you have a successful connection, all your PC traffic will be encrypted and tunneled via our servers to the web. This results in using our server’s IP to browse the web, instead of yours.

How Much is Seedboxes.cc? Is There a Free Trial?
The payment methods they accept are credit cards, PayPal, and Bitcoin. They offer the option to pre-pay for 3, 6 or 12 months and doing so will get you a discounted price and/or extra features like more bandwidth. They also allow you to ask for a refund during the first week of service.
The prices of their plans are a little higher than most VPN providers. You have to keep in mind though that you are not just paying for a VPN connection; you are renting a seedbox server that is supposed to be used for file sharing. The VPN service is just an extra feature and not their primary business.
All new customers are entitled to our 7-day money-back guarantee. This means that if you want to cancel your seedbox, for any reason, within the first 7 days of your purchase, we will charge you only for the days you used the slot (or for the percentage of bandwidth used, whichever is bigger) and refund the rest. No questions asked!
In order to make use of this, you will have to send us an email to [email protected] or open a ticket with the sales department. Your seedbox will be cancelled as soon as we receive your request and your money refunded.”
Seedboxes.cc Speed Test
Using rtorrent with and rutorrent as its front-end, few torrent files of varying sizes were downloaded. Considering that these are of various file sizes, the estimated time to finish a download also varies. From the test conducted, there is one torrent file that has not started to download for quite some time. It is noticeable that the ratio is zero. That would be pretty bad compared to other files being downloaded.
Just take a look at the screenshot below and you can see how the speed in Mbps increases. One may say that it is a remarkable speed but knowing that the bandwidth available is being shared among many users or clients, it should have been at least near to the ideal speed.
Based from experience with this certain plan, the torrent files being downloaded are not underseeded. These are the most downloaded and shared files over the torrent community. Leechers and seeders share these files frequently.
The screenshot of the rtorrent activity is shown below for your own judgment.
How is Customer Service at Seedboxes.cc?
To test how reliable and efficient the customer service is, a ticket was sent in order for them to answer. A response was sent in just two hours. We can’t expect that a quick response to an opened ticket would be given. Compared with other host providers, two hours of waiting is already remarkable.
One good feature of the ticket reply was a thorough explanation which an average client can understand. This is one of the crucial features that a seedbox host provider can give to their clients.
Our hosting accounts are carefully tailored and configured to cover all your needs, while they don’t suffocate the servers or underperform making sure you always get the last bit of performance available on our servers.
During the first week of your service, you can ask for a refund. That’s how confident we are about our seedboxes.
