Thank you so much for this (and your other) article — I, too, use a VPN, and find it slows my laptop down so much I often end up disconnecting it. Of course, this makes it nearly useless to me. If I have to keep disconnecting it to refresh my browser then reconnecting, it’s serving no purpose for me.
I tried setting my connect places for all different geographical locations, and same results, and the test run speeds for the different places all said 1 Gbps. So I’m kind of at a loss. Contacted the company and heard nothing. Bummed.
