NordVPN offers top-notch security technology together with high-speed connection, so you can have the fastest VPN experience without compromising your online privacy and security.

The important aspect that commonly gets overlooked when choosing a VPN service is the issue of reduced Internet speed that often appears with the VPN usage.

It is completely understandable, as the main concerns people have when looking for a VPN provider are usually related to online privacy and security. Keeping your data safe, protecting your identity and doing it with the most advanced and innovative VPN service – it seems that it is all that matters.

Nevertheless, whether you agree or not, VPN connection speed plays an important role in everyday life. Think of those frustrating moments when you can’t enjoy your favorite TV show or have a video chat with your loved ones due to slow VPN connection speed.

What influences VPN connection speed?

The very nature of rerouting and encrypting traffic makes your Internet connection slightly or sometimes even visibly slower when comparing it with your local service provider. However, numerous factors can influence the performance rate of a VPN service, including:

  • the Internet speed;
  • the level of encryption;
  • the protocol being used;
  • the distance to the chosen server;
  • the firewalls or antivirus software, etc.

All these principal components result in speed reduction and unwanted interruptions while browsing the web, streaming video or downloading media content from the Internet.

3 ways how you can ensure fast VPN speed
  1. Choose a VPN provider that offers a high number of servers available in different locations around the world. This way you will have better connectivity anywhere and anytime;
  2. Choose a server that is not too crowded with other users all trying to use the very same bandwidth;
  3. Choose a server that is physically close to you. This way you will reduce the distance your data will travel to be protected from snoopy advertisers or malicious Internet users.
