Areas for Improvement
LeVPN’s prices for shorter terms of service aren’t very competitive compared to other providers.
LeVPN is good. They market themselves as a VPN service for personal use and that’s exactly what they provide. Taking Bitcoin makes them suitable for users who have significant privacy concerns, as does their no-logging policy. Their prices aren’t particularly competitive, but they do offer quite a discount if you subscribe for a longer period of time.
