My VPN Connection Is Running Slowly


  1. Long-distance between your device and our VPN server.
  2. The bottleneck on your ISP’s international peering connectivity or trouble on some links between you and the VPN server.
  3. The speed could be regulated by your Internet provider (ISP).

All the mentioned causes are different for each customer, and we are not able to influence it. All servers are connected at least via the 100 Mbit/sport and the servers are not being overloaded.


  1. Generally, the closest server to your location should provide the best speed and latency.
  2. You can try to use all of the supported VPN protocols. PPTP and L2TP/IPSec are generally faster than the SSTP and OpenVPN.

Try to connect via another ISP (friend’s Internet connection).

What Is The Average Speed Of A1VPNHOSTING

Unfortunately the speed is different for each customer. Please note that all data has to go encrypted to the VPN server first and then to the target server. That’s why the speed via VPN is always a bit lower than via your Internet connection. The speed differs on each of our servers and it is always affected by many factors:

  1. The distance between customer – VPN server – target server
  2. Customer’s ISP international peering connectivity
  3. Network and bandwidth policies of ISP

Most of our customers feedback is that A1VPNHOSTING runs smoothly and more quickly than previous providers.
