speed reduction
« on: August 20, 2021, 05:47:19 PM »
speed without VPN     speed with VPN
160.3                        43.4
108.2                        51.0
160.6                        67.6

This seems like an excessive reduction.
Is there anything I can do about it?

Hi,

Please try a server close to you (optimal location). https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/Use-SecureLine-VPN-standalone/
If you are on Windows 10 you can try the mimic VPN protocol.

Hi. Thank you.

Unfortunately, my Avast interface knows nothing of SmartVPN and looks nothing like the help pages screenshots (because I'm on Windows 7 perhaps). However, whatever my problem is, I now know that Avast is not the main culprit as speeds without VPN are now in the same range as speeds with VPN.


Thanks anyway.
