Hi,

Did you obtain these (with and without SecureLine VPN) results from speedtest.net or a similar website?
The Optimal server should generally give you the best results but please try a different VPN location as well.
If no noticeable difference, then try changing the protocol (Please open Avast SecureLine VPN and go to Menu > Settings > EXPERIMENTAL > and select "Avast Mimic")
