    Tips to make your VPN Faster:
    1. Use the closest server (to you) that works for your intended VPN use.
    2. Choose the least crowded server (if your VPN provides that info)
    3. Use PPTP protocol as long as maximum security isn’t the priority
    4. Use OpenVPN UDP protocol for best blend of security/speed
    5. Choose lower encryption strength (128-bit encryption is faster than 256-bit)
    6. Connecting to your router via LAN cable will be faster than wifi
    7. Upgrade your own connection speed (through your ISP)

    I disagree with this statement. Just because a server is using e.g. 500MBit/s out of 1GBit/s it does not mean that it will be slower. It merely depends on the routing between you and that specific server. I can even almost max out my connection on the gigabitservers in France when they are using ~800Mbit/s.

    It´s also about the ping.

    PPTP is a bad move.

    It's like without surfing with an vpn.

    Even an normal hacker is able to crack this.

    best regards

    The ping is literally dependent on the peering between the ASNs
