What is the effect of having a VPN connection on your internet experience? Is it much slower, just a bit or not noticeable at all?

Normally, your online connections through a VPN service will be relatively slower. However, it’s not a drop in speed you will notice – provided you use a reliable VPN service. Still, there are 4 main reasons why you might experience a slight drop in Internet speeds when using a VPN:

  1. The encryption is high-quality and eats up CPU speed
  2. There are too many users on the server (only a problem with low-tier VPNs)
  3. The physical server is too far away from your physical location
  4. Your Internet connection is slow to start with (an issue with your ISP)
