VPN Slowing my internet


My usual download speed is around 650mb, however when i turn on VPN it slows to around 100MB. Is this the norm or can i change a setting or something as it seems VPN is throttled.

I don't want to use my pc without the VPN as that would defeat the purpose of having it.

Any help appreciated


  • Hi,

    I have the same behavior with 1GB infrastructure, very slow speed when VPN turned ON. Licensed VPN. Waiting for support

  • What's the point of using VPN is it is going to degrade my connection this much?
