Le VPN, a leading global provider of Virtual Private Network and SmartDNS services, has announced a new expansion into the UK market through a merger with My Private Network, which is scheduled to stop their operations and become a part of Le VPN as of February 1, 2019.

Ksenia Votinova, Co-Founder of Le VPN stated, “We are very excited to welcome My Private Network users to the Le VPN family! Our main goal is to ensure the continuity of their VPN services for the duration of their current plans, and hopefully win them over by showing them all of the great benefits of using Le VPN. This is why we are also offering one additional free month to all MPN users as a welcome gift.”

Le VPN has been growing at a fast pace in recent years. Founded in 2010 by a team consisting of a cyber security engineer (Ecole Centrale Paris) and an MBA graduate (INSEAD), the service has changed significantly from its first 2010 beta version with five countries and two security protocols that was using an open-source software.

Today, Le VPN offers a truly global VPN service in five European languages with servers in 114 countries, five security protocols, proprietary easy-to-use apps for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS, five simultaneous connections, SmartDNS and HybridVPN with access to over 100 media services, fast connection speeds, and stability in high-risk countries. All of these features are included in all Le VPN plans, which start at $4.95 per month with a seven-day money-back guarantee.

Jon Gittoes, Founder and Managing Director of My Private Network, explains his decision to merge with Le VPN in the following statement, addressed to his clients:

“To be honest, being a niche VPN provider in a very competitive market has been a struggle, and in recent years we have not been able to attract sufficient new customers to our service. This has led to a decrease in the investment we have been able to make to our infrastructure, applications, and support. We have always strived to provide the best possible service and ultimately it has gotten to the point where the only way we can do this is to merge with a bigger organization.”

“With over ten years experience of providing VPN services, I looked at all of our competitors and ultimately chose Le VPN as the best fit for our existing customers, based primarily on the following reasons:

  • The right size: While Le VPN is considerably larger than us, this is still a significant opportunity for them and therefore they are 100% committed to making the transition work.
  • Europe focused: They have a European management team with the same goals and business values as our own.
  • Trustworthy: The same rigorous approach to security and privacy.
  • Quality service: They provide a bigger and better service, in almost every regard, to include more staff, more investment, more servers, and more countries.”

Jon Gittoes states, “This is not a decision that I have taken lightly. I started My Private Network over ten years ago and have worked on it every day since. Joining Le VPN will be a change, but I firmly believe it will be a change for the better and allow us to continue to provide a world class service."

To facilitate this transition for MPN users, Le VPN has created a special page with all the installation instructions, answers, and tutorials which can be found at https://www.le-vpn.com/upgrading-to-levpn/. Their client support team is also there to provide all the additional help via live chat and a ticket system on Le VPN website or through Le VPN apps.
