How can I speed up my SaferVPN connection?

How can I speed up my SaferVPN connection?:

Encrypting your entire network through SaferVPN requires considerable processing power and bandwidth. This is why you may notice speeds that are lower than your normal ISP speeds. Although the connection may be a little slower you should be comforted in knowing it is also fully encrypted through a secure VPN connection. There are still several ways that you may be able to improve slow SaferVPN connection speeds on your router. 

  1. Try out alternate server locations listed at this link
  2. SaferVPN servers are usually entered as domain names e.g., however, almost all SaferVPN server addresses resolve to several different IP addresses. In order to find out the best server IP in a specific region you can perform an nslookup to obtain a list of all IP's associated with each SaferVPN server. You can then enter each address into your router settings to find out which one works best in your setup. 
    • In a command prompt in Windows or Terminal in MacOS type in for e.g.
    • nslookup and then press Enter to obtain your list. 
  3. Try using our alternate PPTP connection guide for SaferVPN. PPTP connections require less processing power than OpenVPN, which may allow for faster connection speeds. Although it is not as secure as OpenVPN you still get an anonymous IP address in the country of your choosing. Make sure you do not have an OpenVPN connection running at the same time as a PPTP connection.
