Virtual Private Network- Slow Process Frustration

We have to thank science and technology big time that have made our lives much easier than before and it only increases leaps and bounds with each passing decade. It is because technology undergoes changes to suit the new generation and the proof is there for all to see.

The internet revolution took the whole world by storm during the 1980s and today we have so many digital mediums through which we can surf our favorite things online and many others.

But nothing can be more frustrating than a slow internet connection whether it is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) or Local Area Network (LAN) and they both can be found in almost every home especially the former.

Nobody can tolerate a slow VPN connection nowadays and resort to violence if it happens. But that is not the point of contention in this article but something different about VPN connections.

Start Up

There is an argument that has been going on for a long time that establishing a VPN connection reduces the internet speed. Well, there are obviously strong points from both sides due to which the argument persists despite lengthy debates.

Yes, internet slows down if you install a VPN connection but if the quality of connection is good then the speed is hardly noticeable and we know how many youngsters are extremely particular about their internet connection.

The speed should amount to very little slowing down so that it does not impact your online experience because if that happens on a constant basis, then it is likely that the user will have his router replaced.

However, there are situations when having a strong VPN connection improves the current slow speed of your internet, which might seem contradictory to some but it is a point that deserves a mention in this article.

There are many factors that contribute to the speed of an internet connection but the main task of a VPN is to encrypt your connection and send signals through the VPN server.

Due to the numerous steps involved in the process the connection becomes slow after sometime. It does give the feeling that the buffering will never stop despite it being only a few seconds.

NordVPN is one such strong connection when it comes to VPN that increases the speed which is why it is the number one choice amongst other VPNs but those that don’t have this one can follow certain steps so as to reduce the impact of an abysmally slow connection.


Don’t keep a distance between the VPN server and you because it is one reason why the speed slows down. So to increase the internet speed you need to reduce the distance and come closer to the server.

As an example, a person sitting in US wants to connect to a server in India the distance is huge for a data packet to travel so make sure that the location is somewhat nearer.

Another major reason for slow connection is that there are way too many users connected to one server that leads to server overload so use the quick connection button in NoraVPN that automatically connects you with the fastest server in the vicinity.
