"Does using VPN slow down my online experience ?" 

 

"Does it take a lot longer when I download file over VPN connections?"

 

One of the many consideration when picking a VPN provider is SPEED?

 

How speed test are perform

- All test are performed over 1Gbps connection using system located physically in the country of test. Windows 10 Desktop 16 GB RAM. Chrome 71.0.3578.98

- Connect test system to VPN server with NordVPN software version ver 6.19.6.0

- Quick connect Singapore

- 3 or more speed test are perform over VPN against top 3 speedtest system recommended by Speedtest. Highest speed are pick for comparison.

- Baseline - Calculate the % of speed achievable via VPN against speed when not connecting to VPN.  i.e. (100% x (VPN provider / Without VPN))

- disconnected and attempt to reconnect 3-4 times via manual selection of Singapore server, not successful. Abort manual selection of Singapore server as it consume too much time.
