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.
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.
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.
