Speed Test of US Server with PureVPN

During our speed test for PureVPN review, we discovered that the Ping decreased considerably which is an improvement, and the upload speed also remained consistent which is quite encouraging. However, note that PureVPN’s accessibility and anonymity seem to be costing us the download speed.

UK Server without PureVPN

Once connected to PureVPN, SpeedTest.Net reported the following Download speed, Upload speed, and Ping for my encrypted and tunneled internet connection.

Speed Test of UK Server with PureVPN

During our speed test for PureVPN review, we discovered that the Ping we received from PureVPN server was brilliant. However, the download speed may have suffered, while the upload speed hardly experienced any significant changes.

PureVPN is stable in upload speeds, which is good because the VPN encryption relies heavily on the data upload speed. The download speeds are moderate, but we figure a bit of tweaking with the software and a little bit of nagging with the technical support should bring about an improvement.
