So far we’ve resisted to post articles based solely upon one VPN providers latest deal, their latest expansion or new feature. The problem with writing articles based on news from VPN providers is that in a growing market there are always changes afoot and so the articles would be never-ending. This can be infrastructure upgrades, new locations and a whole host of other minor progress reports.
It isn’t very often that a deal or offer catches our eye enough to put fingers to the keyboard, until now. Recently a company called VPN.sh contacted us informing us of their latest deal. No discount this time around or reduction for a specific holiday. VPN.sh are going all out and offering a Pay What You Want (PWYW) deal on their “Small VPN” package.
PWYW is a concept better known to gamers with the Humble Bundle site in which users can pick up a selection of usually either indie or top games from the past few years for the princely sum of “what you want” to pay. Part of the Humble Bundle set-up is it gives some of its earning to charity, granted, VPN.sh are not handing over any of their minuscule payments to charity but it is definitely a great opportunity to pick up a VPN service for pocket change. Although the scheme is called “Pay What You Want” there is however a minimum payment, this minimum is the grand total of just £1 (Approx US$1.65)
VPN.sh is a newcomer to the VPN market with a little over a year of operating under their belt, facing stiff competition and the difficulty of making a name for themselves they are obviously trying hard to attract a customer base at all costs. Although they are a relatively new and small company it is for this very reason that now is the time to take advantage of them for your own gains. The package available offers access to servers in 17 locations which include 5 in the US, 2 in Germany and 1 each in the following countries, UK, Switzerland, Iceland, Italy, Canada, Netherlands, Estonia, Moldova, New Zealand & Singapore. Connection is allowed via PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN with no restrictions on speed. There are no custom software packages like some of the bigger players but there are handy set up guides on their site for the different connection protocols. One of the downsides to the offer is there is a limit of just 20GB of bandwidth per month. This may not seem like a huge amount and if you’re downloading large ISO files regularly or making heavy use then this kind of package wouldn’t be suitable for your needs, however for medium day to day surfing from your desktop, tablet or mobile then for the security and peace of mind that a VPN provides this service might just be ideal for you as long as you can stay within the bandwidth limit.
Now we can’t vouch for the quality of service provided, although we couldn’t find any negative press when searching their name and taking a yearly package with a more unknown VPN provider is always a risk, no one likes to pay for a year and have them close down after 3 months, but in all honestly for the sum of US$1.65 then there really is nothing to lose. At just 13 cents per month this is a little known deal that might just be a gem worth testing.
If you’re feeling flush or just feel like not robbing VPN.sh blind then you can pay a little more than the minimum, after all it is called “Pay What You Want”. If you’re interested in taking a look then head over to their PWYW page using the link below :-
