VPN Unlimited® Speed: Does a VPN Slow Down Your Internet Connection

In a present-day reality, using a VPN application is a must for everyone who wants to keep their data safe and enjoy unrestricted internet access. Your VPN speed directly depends on your internet speed and even if this speed is super fast, the app can’t be faster. Since VPN encrypts your traffic, using such a service affects your connection speed in any case. A slight speed loss is a small price to pay for your online security and data privacy.

This speed loss can be different and it mostly depends on the various number of factors like the distance from your current location to a VPN server and a server workload. If you feel uncomfortable with your VPN connection speed, keep reading to learn how to make VPN faster.
