VPN Speed Test - Which Is the Fastest?

A VPN provider ensures that when surfing the web, you're always safe, regardless of where you physically are. However, the speed of a VPN server plays a big role in determining how useful a VPN provider is. Many VPN tests only assess the speed of a provider once. EXPERTE.com, however, tested every provider several times per day over the course of a year, creating a detailed picture of how each provider's servers perform and stack up against one another.

1.

Method

  • We connected from a server in Europe (Frankfurt/Main, Germany) to a VPN provider several times per day, downloading, or uploading standardized test data.
  • The server we connected from has a bandwidth of 1,000 MB/s, making the VPN server we connected to the limiting factor.
  • Using OpenVPN, we connected to various servers in Germany, using both TCP and UDL as transmission protocols.
