Slow Performance


Recommended Posts

I also get significantly reduced download speeds. My service is Mediacom 1gps down and 60gps up. Without VPN, I average around 600-800mbps (mostly 700) down and around 60 up.

With VPN, download speeds drop around 75% to around 150-200 mbps. The funny thing (and you probably have an explanation for this) is that upload speed is minimally affected.

I'm in Cedar Rapids, IA and do all of my testing with Ookla and the server is WindStream (Chicago).

I've tried many of the US-based Privacy servers and they all give pretty much the same results. I have no interest in the foreign servers.

I've got a custom computer with Gigabyte motherboard with an on-board Realtek 1gps port, 16GB memory and AMD 4.2ghz cpu, Netgear CM1100 1gps modem and Nighthawk AC1900 router.

If I could be of any assistance in finding out why some users are less impacted than others, I'd be willing to participate.
