Privacy

LimeVPN provides an informative privacy policy that you can read online before signing up to any of their plans. The basic gist of it being that no information about you or your account will be given to anyone except law enforcement personnel in possession of the appropriate documentation and paperwork. The site also states that it does not monitor, record or store logs relating to the VPN activity of any single customer during its normal course of duties, and also does not store data specifying the websites that customers visit or the files that they download.

Features

The site takes pride in emphasizing the many areas in which it is differentiated from the VPN competition. It claims itself to be "the best global network", complete with limitless IP addresses, 24/7 customer support, extremely fast connections and all-encompassing privacy.

 The company has servers located in the US, UK, Australia, Netherlands, Singapore, France, Japan and Russia, with the connection speed for its Palo Alto server being 1 GBPS and the rest of its servers, 100 MBPS. It also boasts unlimited VPN usage and server switching, while the range of available protocols includes PPTP, L2TP/IPsec, SSTP, Softether and OpenVPN SSL.  

 Users of LimeVPN's service also have the reassurance of 256 bit encryption and a wide range of compatible operating systems, including Windows, Mac, iOS and Android OS. However, there are not yet any software applications available for Linux based operating systems, making it necessary for the users of such platforms to manually configure their settings. 

Speed

As aforementioned, LimeVPN has gone to great lengths to make its VPN services as zippy as possible, with download speeds of up to 10 GBPS supported. The exact speed will naturally depend on your ISP and location, but provided that your speed is not being capped by your ISP, it should be good enough for heavier online activities as gaming and the streaming of multimedia. We often found overseas sites to be a bit quicker-loading on LimeVPN than local ones.

Pricing

The cost of LimeVPN's plans is undoubtedly one of its strengths, with the 'basic' package being priced at $1 per month for 2 years. That's a great deal for a plan including the likes of a shared dynamic IP, 24/7 customer support and security for all of your devices. Whether you opt for 'basic' or the more impressively-specified 'pro', you are able to take advantage of a 7-day money back guarantee.

Customer Support

If the company's low price plans is one of its strengths, an obvious weakness is the lack of even a phone number to call for support. That is not to say, however, that its customer service in general is weak - there is, after all, a convenient email contact form that we found to be good for getting prompt, full and useful responses. There's also an easy-to-access network status page and an FAQs section divided into the categories of general questions, billing/sales questions and technical questions.

Ease of Use

The website is very nicely laid out, clean-looking and easy to navigate, with the wider service having much the same ease of use. We were able to get set up pretty quickly and immediately start taking advantage of the many features in each package, including the impressive speeds. All in all, we found LimeVPN to be a solid provider of quick and well-specified VPN services, its plans being attractively priced while boasting relatively few drawbacks.
