Slow internet speed with AirVPN in Sweden
#1
It seems that Kustbandet has now much better connections to other ISPs than before. Now I get maximum speeds with great stability at Uppsala servers as well.

I'm using DD-WRT firmware in my home router and configured the OpenVPN client in the router, so all devices at my home network are using the VPN connection.

Connecting to the German AirVPN servers, the speed goes up to 30-35 Mbit/s in both directions.
Just a comparison with other VPN vendors which I have been testing an configured as OpenVPN client on my DD-WRT router.
ExpressVPN (connected to Swedish servers) ca. 70 Mbit/s in both directions.
NordVPN (connected to Swedish servers get up to 150 Mbit/s down and 100 Mbit/s uplink.
Huge difference here compared to the VPN servers used by AirVPN.
Checking the details a bit, I see that AirVPN is using servers located in the north of Stockholm (Uppsala / Åkersberga), connected to the ISP Kustbandet AB which is connected to IP-Only.
NordVPN is using for example Obenetwork AB for their VPN servers

I have similar issues with AirVPN's swedish servers. They have unfortunately just selected an ISP with bad peering to most other Swedish isps.
For instance i get similar speeds to you with the Swedish servers but can max out my 100Mbit connection with the Netherlands servers. It doesn't matter which setup i use, the results are still the same.

The linked test isn't going through openvpn client built into the router. The openvpn client in this router isn't capable of this performance as has already been stated. You would need to use an openvpn client on a computer via the router to see this performance.

The only other explanation that I can think of is that speedtest.net flash test seems to show abnormally high speeds sometimes if the VPN connection has LZO compression enabled. It must be something about the data it sends.

The internet speed was really slow so I could not complete the university assignment help that I was working on. A student had to suffer because of this so Isuggest you to fix it.
