As of December 2018, LogMeIn Central Basic is no more. The new LogMeIn Central Base Plan’s starting price is nearly 40% more expensive than the old Basic package. Don’t pay more, get the same top features and save up to 50% or more when you choose Splashtop instead.

LogMeIn has just scrapped their old Central packages in favor of a “Base Plan” with optional add-ons available for purchase. The new Base Plan starts at $954.99/year, while the old Basic package started at $599/year. That’s nearly a 40% increase in cost.

As a small IT service provider, my focus is on my clients’ needs. And that includes being able to provide an instant response remotely if I cannot be in site. Like many other IT professionals, I was blindsided by the LogMeIn pricing bombshell which has left me and my clients scrambling for an alternative to that, now overpriced, solution. After making do on a temporary basis with other products' free solutions, I have finally come home to Splashtop.

In addition to being easily deployed and scaled, Splashtop gives me excellent performance even over sketchy connections. I will sleep better at night knowing I'll be able give my clients great support the next day!
