How to boost my VPN connection speed?
Why does your internet speed drop?
Normally VPN connections are slow due to added plug-ins, protocols, and the encryption, which is providing your devices end-to-end security. However, at FastestVPN your service speed is generally not compromised but also enhanced when turned-on. If you do face any issue regarding speed at some point then know that there must be a critical error at the back-end operations of the VPN.
How can I fix/ increase my speed?
Connect to FastestVPN and check the speed at http://www.speedtest.net and note down the download and upload speeds. Do not close or refresh speedtest page and disconnect FastestVPN. Then in the seedtest page, click on ‘Again’ and it will now find your connection speed without VPN connection. Compare the both speeds i.e. with and without VPN. If there is a major noticeable drop in speed with VPN, try following steps.
Often speed is related to the protocols you select as PPTP offers higher speed rate but weaker encryption in contrary to the L2TP and OpenConnect, which offer stronger encryption but slightly slower speed.

Turn the firewall off
You’d need to check your router or 3rd party Firewall settings if you are facing unstable connection issues as firewall tends to conflict with the VPN. What you need to do is turn-off your firewall from the settings so that it enables your VPN to stay connected.

If after trying every step in this guide you are still facing problems in connection then there might be some issues with your ISP not being able to route you with proper service or might have limited internet connection activity. In this case, you are recommended to check your ping.
