The company allows unlimited server switching with every plan so you would be able to unlock premium content from all the 20 countries where the company has VPN severs with just one subscription.

VPN Speed and Bandwidth

Le VPN offers unlimited speeds and unrestricted data transfer to its customers. The lack of throttling and monthly limits makes the service ideal for VOIP, gaming, streaming, downloading and bittorrenting activities. The company allows peer to peer sharing traffic through its Russian and Czech servers so you can use the service to anonymize your torrenting activities.

Privacy Settings

Le VPN delivers military grade encryption (X.509 certificates authentication) through the OpenVPN protocol. The company also supports PPTP and L2TP protocols for maximum compatibility. The service creates a secure tunnel around your online sessions and secures your browsing, FTP, VOIP, messaging and emailing activities. The company also provides an excellent hotspot protection which means your passwords, IP address, banking transactions and identity remain hidden from hackers, snoopers and sniffing programs when you are connected to wireless networks at airports, parks, coffee shops, malls and hotels. The company respects the privacy of its customers and does not spy on its users’ online activities.

Supported Operating Systems

Le VPN offers excellent compatibility with Windows, Mac, Linux, iPads, iPhones and Android based Smartphones and tablets. The company offers a custom dialer for Windows but other systems require manual configuration. However, the setup process is extremely easy thanks to the detailed setup instructions available on the company’s site. The service can be used from two different devices simultaneously so you can protect your computer and smartphone (or tablet) at the same time.

Customer Support

The company offers customer support through an email based ticketing system. The company has also published basic troubleshooting advice on its official site so you should be able to fix common VPN errors on your own.

Pricing Options

Le VPN’s unlimited plans are available from 11.95 EUR per month (23.85 EUR for 3 months, 35.7 for 6 months and 59.4 for 12 months). Apart from saving on subscription cost through term discounts, it is also possible to save money by using Le VPN coupons and promotional codes. The company does not offer a free trial but it does offer a 7 day money back guarantee for total peace of mind.

Final Verdict

Le VPN offers a good choice of server locations and delivers high level of security through OpenVPN protocol. While the service appears expensive for monthly plans, the price drops substantially if you are willing to purchase long term plans. We recommend taking advantage of the 7 day money back guarantee to see if the service is worth your time and money.
