My Internet speed is slow after connected to VPN.What should I do ?

Server speed is variable based on several different factors including: your location, your internet speed, internet connectivity between our server and your ISP, the location of the site you want to visit, the VPN protocol you choose to use, and what routes you or the server takes to the content you've requested. 

While this isn't always possible, in general, it is always best to connect to a server that is close to you AND close to your destination.

You can use our speedtest application below to check which locations are performing best for you while vpn is not connected.Then you can try connecting to best performing locations with different vpn protocols , pptp,l2tp,sstp and openvpn with different tcp and udp ports in order to optimize your speed.You can setup manually following our setup tutorials for different vpn protocols or use our vpn client software.

If you find your connection is not optimal on one server, first try other protocols, L2TP, SSTP, PPTP, OpenVPN(both TCP and UDP mode with different ports) to connect, as this may be a better solution for you. You can also try our second, third, fourth.. servers located in same location and also different cities and countries as this offers redundancy, as well as different routing optimization, speed and/or latency.

We also provide SSH Tunnel/Socks proxy in case VPN protocols are not suitable for you.
