NordVPN is upgrading its network to 10Gbps servers

calendarDecember 21, 2020

New servers will bring NordVPN users better performance and maximum speed

NordVPN is proud to announce the latest upgrade to its infrastructure — 10Gbps servers. The leading VPN service provider is one of the first on the market to move from 1Gbps to 10Gbps servers and cover such a wide range of locations.

As of today, more than 20% of NordVPN servers have been upgraded to 10Gbps. “While our servers in Amsterdam and Tokyo have been 10Gbps for quite some time now, London, Singapore, and a part of the US are planned to fully integrate a 10Gbps network by the end of this year,” says Marijus Briedis, CTO at NordVPN.

Why are 10Gbps servers better than 1Gbps?

In general, VPNs run on 1Gbps servers, but to enhance the speed and overall performance, NordVPN is moving a step forward. 1Gbps servers will eventually run into bottlenecks, as data demand is getting higher and 5G is becoming more widespread, bringing higher transfer speeds to the market.

When multiple users try to connect to a server, the bandwidth is effectively split between them, which may lead to slow speeds for everyone involved. Using 10Gbps servers allows for more simultaneous uploads without throttling. More data passing through the connection per second means it takes less time to make requests to the server.

“The number of people relying on NordVPN for secure internet access is skyrocketing. We’re going to keep improving our server speeds to meet that demand by acquiring future-focused solutions like 10Gbps servers,” explains Marijus Briedis.

Earlier this year, NordVPN rolled out a private server network, wholly owned and controlled by the company itself. The custom-specific colocated servers provide NordVPN users with an even higher level of security and privacy.

Just last week, NordVPN introduced the Presets feature on the NordVPN app for macOS, allowing you to launch websites and apps you use with VPN faster. The preset combines custom VPN connection settings with shortcuts to apps or websites, which gives you secure, VPN-protected access to your favorite online services, like news, entertainment, and downloads, directly from the NordVPN app.

In summer 2020, NordVPN announced a strategic partnership with Troy Hunt, a web security expert and the creator of Have I Been Pwned. Hunt is now a member of Nord Security’s team of advisors, who share their expertise and provide guidance on the company’s security and commercial practices. Nord Security is a home for advanced security solutions, including the world’s most advanced VPN service NordVPN, the powerful file encryption tool NordLocker, the business VPN solution NordLayer, and the next-generation password manager NordPass.
