VPN Secure Line Slows internet speed
« on: January 07, 2020, 08:52:43 PM »
Opening a tab on the internet was taking 15 or more seconds. I went to Speedtest.net. It showed I was testing from , Leaseweb
108.62.116.176. Download speed 56.3 Mbs upload 12.63 Mbs. I turned off VPN  retested download 232.6 Mbs, upload 22.3 Mbs.  Why does VPN cause such a drag on my network speed??

Hi,

You may experience a slower internet connection when using SecureLine VPN. A VPN encrypts traffic and data before sending it to a server. Depending on the distance and capacity of the server, this process may cause a slightly slower, but safer, internet connection.

Try to connect to a different Virtual IP Location (e.g. optimal location)

True? What else?
Money has been paid for this product, and it is 100 times worse than free. So try to change the work, and not cheat customers? When you sell, you claim that your avast does not reduce speed and blah-blah-blah.
