How fast are VPN servers? part 2

As you know HideIPVPN servers do no have any limits on speed. We want to provide you with the best possible service you can get. This is why we limit number of Premium accounts that can be created in order to have control on the load of our servers (the same goes for Free VPN accounts). Because, as we said nor you, nor we can influence the route your data travels to us all we can do in order to help you out to achieve highest possible speed is to provide you with access to more than one server in different locations. Below you will see outcome of speedtest made in the same physical location but with use of two different broadband provided by two large ISP’s.

You also have to remember that results above and the speed shown is not fixed in any way. As load and traffic handled by the computers in between VPN server and the client changes, as will change the speed of the connection. You will see that wen you will do your own tests. Sometimes bandwidth can jump from 1 Mbps to 12 Mbps and the next second fall down on 6 Mbps. We hope that this clearly shows that:

Our servers do not really have any “caps” on speed and that overall speed of connection is not set by you or VPN server.

The last part is directed to those of you who are interested in our service, new customers or those of you who simply did not have time or thought of performing a test. When you register for our Free 3h trial you will get access our 21 VPN servers (8 servers with US IP address, 8 servers with UK IP address, 3 servers with NL IP address and 2 servers with DE IP address). Please, do test all of them for speed and stability of connection. As they are in different locations and they are connected to different networks the speed you will get (as you can see above in our testes) can be quite different. And although all servers are the same it terms of bandwidth efficiency just looking at the results above shows you that that it is the connections and computers in between that have the biggest effect on overall performance of connection.

As you can see there is no easy and straight answer to the question from the topic. To be honest nominal speed of those servers is way higher than what is shown in the table but as we said before – they will only be as fast as the slowest computer in the chain. Regardless of speed there is one undeniable fact – sometimes a bit slower, sometimes a bit faster but ALWAYS ANONYMOUS, PRIVATE and SAFE – this is how you surf with HideIPVPN.

Remember, Your IP is Your ID!

*: This test was added few days ago, because I had an opportunity to use such type of broadband and I was interested to see how this will affect usability of VPN service. As you can see the difference is stunning. As long as I was browsing (without VPN) national sites I hand no problems. But when I tried to access sites on servers in UK or US the effect was exactly the same as when I connected to our VPN servers – internet got dead slow. This means that traffic created by this small, local ISP was “lower graded” by the BIG, National ISP who was the actual service provider.
