  • Thanks Gjoksi

    I have done all these things previously. turn bitdefender off........BAM......file download speed increased by a factor of nearly 10


  • Thank you for bringing this up and saving me from wasting my money. I am looking for a VPN, Bitdefender, I just will not pay for one that ends up slowing my speeds down by any notable amount.

    You want my money for this Bitdefender? Optimize your VPN's and make it so speeds would even increase ( or at the minimum, stay within 10-20ms the same). Anything less will result in your company not getting my money for VPN services. (love the rest of Bitdefender though!)

  • Hello,

    In regards to download speed and possible slowdowns whe using a VPN connection, more information is required for troubleshooting. @pdalgety @Mumnoch I'll reach you in private to ask some questions.
