I have opened a ticket about this problem, but only get the answer that one can expect slower speed when connected to Secureline.
This is the measure I get when testing as I was told to do:
Disconnected from Secureline: 110 mbps /27.88 mbps.
Connected to Secureline : 3.62 mbps /9.04 mbps.
(this was connected to Amsterdam, I also tried Miami which was almost the same (4.10 /8.19)
I have tried to repair the installation of Secureline.
This didnt help,
so I uninstalled and reinstalled (following the instructions on the website)
This didnt help either.
And I have tried to disconnect from the firewall, – no difference.
I get the impression that support from Avast has stopped altogether.
A couple of weeks ago I had another problem, called the support and I had
the same experience as this guy tells about: https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/beware-of-avast-customer-support-641124/
He did pay, I luckily refused to pay and found that it could be very, very easily fixed by myself in 10 minutes and I saved 100 $.
Avast used to be trustworthy....
