Which Servers are Fast?

The speed test tool helps VPN users decide on the fastest server as per their requirement. PureVPN has an in-house speed test tool to help PureVPN users get the best from PureVPN. Previously, the speed test tool was hosted on our website, but to innovate it further and enhance it with quality attributes, we moved the tool to our apps.

We have integrated it into PureVPN’s app, regardless of the platform. The purpose of doing so is to make it easier for users to connect to the fastest available server. In order to do so, all a user needs to do is to use the ‘Location & Purpose’ feature in app to connect to the fastest servers at any given time. 

Manual Configuration

Even though the tool is available within PureVPN’s app, users do have the option to configure it manually for the fastest possible connection. In order to do so, the following DNS servers will prove to be of great use:

  • fastest-usserver.ptoserver.com
  • fastest-auserver.ptoserver.com
  • fastest-ukserver.ptoserver.com
  • fastest-purevpnserver.ptoserver.com
  • purep2p.ptoserver.com

    Hi, Thanks for reaching out.

    Once you connect to VPN to any desired country then the PureVPN app redirects you the fastest server available to that location.

    Hi,

    Thanks for contacting us. PureVPN prides itself in providing high capacity, low latency, and secure bandwidth. However, the speed you get depends on many factors and technicalities like transit nodes between your network and our VPN server, existing noise, etc. This is because the network traffic usually travels around the Earth from a user to a VPN server and then back to its destination.

    Feel free if you have any other concern.

    PureVPN or any VPN, for that matter, tends to slow down due to various factors. Keeping this in mind, we have compiled a simple tutorial to address this issue. The tutorial can be found at http://support.purevpn.com/how-to-turbo-charge-your-vpn-speed
    Follow the instructions given in the tutorial to get rid of your vpn-speed woes.

    How did you do this?

  • PureVPN Team

    Thanks for reaching out. This is the best server.

    If you are using our app, then we would suggest you to select ‘File Sharing’ mode and connect with nearest location, this should also give best speed.

    Hi,

    Thanks for reaching out to us. Our app is very efficient in finding fastest server that’s why the speed test tool is no longer required.
