About The Company
AceVPN is a VPN that aims to provide users the feature to protect their identity and data while they surf the internet at the lowest cost possible. They call themselves security and IT experts who have good experience in providing customers good security and protection against threats. Their lowest costing plan charges users less than a cup of coffee per day.
AceVPN’s website instantly showcases its plans and the features in each of them. We found some interesting points in them.
At $0.15 a day, their Premium service is the least costing VPN service available. They call themselves the cheapest VPN in the market, but their ultimate plan is not as cheap as the premium plan. Their no logs policy means that users are guaranteed total privacy while using their service. They also offer a 7-day money back guarantee and both the premium and ultimate plans include the unblock TV plan that does not cost a penny and helps users unblock movies, etc. without installing any software for it.
AceVPN offers two services. While the Ultimate Plan has servers in 17 countries worldwide, the Premium plan has servers only in USA, UK, and France, which makes its global coverage rather small.
AceVPN supports all protocols like PPTP, L2TP, SSTP, OpenVPN and iKEv2 to provide super-secure encryption to its users.
All good VPNs have the feature of supporting all devices and platforms. Although AceVPN has some shortcomings, it tries to make up for them by its platform independence. It works on platforms like Windows, Mac-OS, and Linux and supports all major devices like mobiles and tablets.
- VPN Apps/Software
There is no dedicated application provided by AceVPN for its customers. They need to rely on third-party applications for setting up the VPN connection using OpenVPN protocol.
This is the flagship feature of AceVPN. They offer two plans; Premium and Ultimate. The Premium plan costs a mere $4.58 per month, which is one of the cheapest services available. The Ultimate plan costs $13.75 per month.

AceVPN focusses on being a low-cost VPN and aims to provide the capabilities and features of a standard good VPN service in its low-cost packages. However, it does not succeed in its aim by some extent as there are some performance and policy issues with their service. Where compatibility options are really impressive, the setup guides and features and tools are not at all user-friendly. It is not a VPN that a new user should go for, despite its really low cost.
