Does a VPN slow down the internet?

When you connect to a VPN, your internet traffic is routed through a secure encrypted tunnel, which may cause a slight decrease in your connection speed. In most cases, it will be too small to notice, especially when you go online just for regular daily browsing. However, if you use a VPN for secure streaming or peer-to-peer file sharing, you may want to make sure you are getting the best speeds available.

Here’s what influences the VPN connection speed

connection speed

  • Internet speed offered by your ISP

  • The quality of encryption

  • Distance to the VPN server

  • VPN server load

  • The security protocol being used

  • The firewalls or antivirus software used

All these elements can result in poor internet performance and unwanted interruptions while browsing the web, streaming video or downloading media content from the internet. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

3 ways how you can ensure fast VPN connection


Be picky about servers

Go for a VPN service provider with wide server coverage. The math is simple here: more servers mean less overcrowding and better speeds. Plus, a variety of worldwide locations will ensure you will find a server nearby, wherever you are.

Unknown location

Choose location carefully

Long distances are the worst, so if you don’t have a specific location in mind, it’s always better to pick a server that is physically close to you. This way you will reduce the distance your data will travel to be protected from snoopers and malicious internet users.

Quick Connect

Avoid the crowds

It’s only natural that when too many users are connected to the same server, the connection speed drops. No worries here! Just hit the Quick Connect button in the NordVPN app and you will be automatically connected to the best server available at the moment.

What is the fastest VPN service?

The fastest VPN is the one that constantly upgrades its server network, invests in software architecture, and keeps up a robust infrastructure. In these respects, NordVPN is second to none.

On top of that, we have increased the computing load of our servers, which significantly boosted the speed of our service. This is an entirely new technological solution made possible by the fact that NordVPN boasts one of the most powerful VPN infrastructures in the word.
