TCP or UDP? Which Is better?

Using NordVPN you can choose between TCP and UDP Internet protocols to connect to our VPN servers. Both of them have their own advantages – TCP is more reliable and ensures that your data will be delivered in the right order and without any part missing. UDP does not have this trait and sends the data without keeping the right order and that is why it it faster.

We prepared a short guide how to connect to our servers through different Internet protocols and made a speed test to check which protocol gives a faster Internet speed. Take a look!
