VPNs are notorious for slowing down your connection speed
VPN services have never shied away from the fact that online privacy came with a certain speed trade-off. For some VPN services, the slowing down of your Internet is so bad that streaming videos or other simple online activities such as web browsing become nearly impossible.
What causes VPNs to slow down your Internet?
There’s not one definitive cause that can be traced back to the decrease in your Internet speed. In truth, it’s a cumulation of factors.
The location of the server you connect to, the server load and the server quality itself, the type of encryption the VPN uses, or the VPN routing algorithms – all of these play a role part in chopping off your upload or download speeds and making your Internet run at snail speed.
We left no stone unturned in search for the fastest VPN possible
CyberGhost always strives for excellency. So, when it came to building the fastest VPN, we knew we had to tackle every single aspect that may cause speed drops. And that’s exactly what we did.
#1. State-of-the art global VPN server infrastructure
We’ve invested massively in having the most advanced server infrastructure possible. We cut no corners because we knew that this was a sure way of hitting three targets with one shot:
- server location,
- server quality &
- server numbers.
#2. Support for the fastest VPN protocols available
VPNs come along with many different security protocols. Each protocol servers the same purpose – safeguarding your browsing activity against snoopers and hackers.
However, there are protocols that sacrifice speed for extra-security and vice-versa.
In designing our app, we’ve made sure to include the fastest VPN protocols available – L2TP and IKEV2. Depending on your type of activity, CyberGhost automatically detects the best one for you.
#3. Split tunneling
This new feature allows you to segment your online traffic into encrypted and unencrypted traffic. By excluding trusted apps or websites from the VPN tunnel you encrypt less data which in turn automatically enhances your speed.
#4. Lightning fast streaming & torrenting servers
Streaming and torrenting are two of the biggest uses of a VPN. Both of which require speed. No one wants to wait 10 or 15 minutes for a video to load. Just as everyone hates waiting hours upon for a file to download.
So, to give you the best possible streaming and torrenting experience, we’ve allocated special resources to build the fastest possible streaming and torrenting servers.
That’s why we are the first VPN service to offer servers optimized especially for streaming platforms such as: Netflix, Hbo Now, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Crunchyroll, Sling TV, BBC iPlayer, Eurosport and many more.
A quick VPN optimized for all your devices
Whether you’re connected to the Internet via an Android or an iOS mobile device, a PC or a Mac, or all of them, CyberGhost will always deliver the same high-speed Internet experience you’re looking for.
Plus, one CyberGhost subscription is enough to secure your data-privacy on up to 7 different devices at the same time.
