Avast SecureLine - too slow to be usable!
« on: May 16, 2015, 07:53:48 PM »
Helo everyone!

Think two times before you buy Avast SecureLine - it is to slow to be usable. For example when connecting to Chicago you will be unable to reach CNN - it takes ages for page to load. I have similar times on other settings.

Tracing route to cnn.com [157.166.226.26]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1   152 ms   153 ms   154 ms  100.100.96.1
  2   161 ms   152 ms   152 ms  ip131.67-202-65.static.steadfastdns.net [67.202.
65.131]
  3   153 ms   153 ms   153 ms  xe-0-0-1.core3.chi02.steadfast.net [208.100.32.5
2]
  4   152 ms   153 ms   153 ms  ae0.core4.chi02.steadfast.net [216.86.149.51]
  5     *        *        *     Request timed out.
  6     *        *        *     Request timed out.
  7     *        *        *     Request timed out.
  8     *        *     ^C

Pinging cnn.com [157.166.226.26] with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.

Request timed out.

Ping statistics for 157.166.226.26:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss),

Its joke not VPN solution!


I have VDSL+ connection...

Have you tried one of the other available vpn servers in SecureLine ?

There are other possible explanations to the slow service, like high traffic time on that particular server, ISP issues and website availability just to mention a couple.
I've used many VPN's over the years and have not noticed any 'overly' lengthy connection or service times with Avast VPN lately.
As Eddy suggested, try one of the other numerous server possibilities.
***HP ENVY 15K LT W10 Pro 21H2 64Bit/250GB SSD/16GB Ram/ADU v.22.4b/VS/SANDBOXIE-plus/MailWasherPRO
**HP Compaq 8510p LT W10 Pro 21H2 64Bit/1TB HD/8GB Ram/ADU v.22.4b/VS/SANDBOXIE/HotSpot Shield

I have tried all US servers - almost the same times. I have to search for other VPN solution - any suggestions?

There was no ISP problems - i have tested speeds without VPN.

Why not tried a server outside the US ?
