🪙 Lec Coin – The Currency of Choice: One US Dollar ($1) can get you 100 Lec Points, but wait, there’s more! You can often snag them for even less with monthly discounts!
🪙 The Mighty Unit: Think of 1 Lec Coin as your golden ticket to avail our services. For example, just 1 Coin gets you 1 GB of traffic cruising through our Proxy. Sweet deal, right?
🕒 Hourly Traffic Calculations – No Surprises: Here’s how we keep tabs on the traffic: every hour, we look at how much data has zoomed through each of your proxies/tunnels, and round it up to the nearest gigabyte (So, if you used 1336.69 GB, it’s counted as 1337 GB). This amount is then automatically billed and deducted from your stash of Lec Points. Don’t worry, if you haven’t set up any proxy or tunnel, your Lec Points are safe and sound – no deductions!
And that’s pretty much it! Simple, upfront, and without any hidden twists. Now, gear up and let your data zoom through Lectron’s secure and optimized network! 🚀💨
🚀 Accelerate – The Fast Lane: Included in our plans is a nifty feature called ‘Accelerate’. Imagine this as a super-smart GPS that picks out the fastest route for your data. It optimizes network paths so that your data reaches its destination more efficiently, and your users get to enjoy lightning-fast access. How? By making sure the data hops onto the closest anycast edge points of presence. It’s like having your personal fast lane on the data highway!
Very low cost. Lectron services are billed individually based on usage presented in the table above. You just need to add a minimum amount of credit to create a protected proxy or tunnel. Most services are enough for you to run smaller applications at very little cost (and when they grow, very low cost). Billing is per user or organization (collaborative team feature will be coming soon).
For now, the minimum amount of credit to be added to your account before creating a protected proxy or tunnel is $3 USD. You only need to add funds, pay for what you use, and that’s it.
You can use credit/debit card (VISA, MasterCard, AMEX, etc…) and Paypal to add credit to your account and pay for our services. The process is straightforward and payment are secured by Stripe and Paypal API.
Our automatic systems use API calls to periodically query our internet upstream transit providers’ API to get inbound and outbound traffic for your proxy/tunnel and round it up to the nearest gigabyte.
For each proxy/tunnel that you create, traffic is calculated hourly and rounded up to the nearest gigabyte (for example, 1336.69 GB is rounded up to 1337 GB). The hourly usage is then billed and deducted from your credit balance automatically. If you don’t have any proxy or tunnel created in your account, no money is deducted on an hourly basis, so you don’t have to worry about that.
That is part of our rounded up to the nearest upper gigabyte in the pricing model listed above. You can consider it the price for unused reserved resource (in this case a created proxy or tunnel that isn’t used).
This is similar to other cloud providers, the only difference is that Lectron is cheaper and we already includes different calculations into one simple price of $0.01/GB.
Please take a look at Google Cloud Network Pricing for example: Google Cloud charges for compute engine and for reserved IP address whether or not it’s being used or unused. Similarly, Lectron also have similar cloud pricing model, but cheaper and easier to understand: We have everything under the 0.01 per GB, rounded to the higher nearest GB, per proxy/tunnel created, only after when you create a proxy/tunnel
Yes. Although, to reduce cheats and abuse, we require that you have at least $3 in your credit balance prior to the creation of each proxy or tunnel. If you want to create two or more protected proxies or tunnels.
Yes. After creating a proxy or tunnel, you will be able to edit it as long as you wish.
No. We don’t support claiming back credit yet. If you have a small amount of dollars and cents left in your account, we will help you make use of it via our future various products. We have a roadmap to gamify the usage of the Lectron product ecosystem so that the leftover credit that you might have is not wasted. “NO REFUND POLICY”
