How to Turbo Charge Your VPN Speed?

How to Give Your VPN Speed a Turbo Boost?

A slow connection is a pain, and this page will help you get rid of this pain once and for all. Before we begin, please remember that the speed of your VPN connection depends on many factors, like your original bandwidth, distance to and from the server, etc. and these factors are well-beyond the reach of PureVPN.

Why does the speed drop?

A VPN connection is generally slow because of all the added security, protocols and encryption carried out on end-to-end basis. This is done for the security of your data.

How can you improve speed?

Having said that, if you are experiencing speed slower than usual, then you can take some steps to improve the situation.


Speed Depends Upon Your Internet Connection

Change Protocols

Turn off Firewall

Select the Nearest/Closest Server

P2P File Sharing.

Use Purpose Selection Tool

Encryption

Unable to Access Certain Websites Over VPN

    Can you please add a “Torrenting” purpose to the PureVPN app. I don’t care what server I connect to, I just want to connect to the fastest one for torrenting purposes. It’s literally the only reason I use a VPN and I’m sure the same goes for many others as well.

    I paid for a year upfront to use PureVPN for torrenting, then you guys came out and changed what servers allow torrenting, so it’s become an issue for me. I’d appreciate something like what I described being implemented, thanks.

    edit: Oh wow, you guys already did this! Thanks!

    Hi there,

    The Internet speed test is over 10 mbps, however when I’m using a torrent client the speed with PureVPN is always lower than 5 mbps. Some ideas how to improve the speed?

    • PureVPN Team

      We are sorry for the inconvenience. We would recommend you to connect with Germany or Netherlands servers then check, it should improve speed.

    How to solve this problem? Support guy keeps giving me the same crappy answer like uninstall the beta version and use the old one. If i wanna use the one then why would i ask for support? Why do u release the new version and ask me to use the old version? It doesn’t make any sense.

    Hi,

    Thanks for reaching out. Its a good question, allow me to explain: Whenever you run Speed test tool, it upload and download a file to check the speed in this process in result PureVPN Speed graph goes up, as a file is uploaded and downloaded by speed test tool.

    Hope this answers your query, if you still have any question, feel free to drop us a line!

    Hi, I just bought the service and am in Australia, bought the service because it said it had an Australian server. But I can’t find one when connecting. Closest is Malaysia and it’s about 8mb slower than my connection speed without using a VPN. Does anyone know how I can fix this problem?
