I am currently paying for internet through SuddenLink which has offered me 50Mb download and 3MB upload. I have also bought a VPN through PrivateInternetAccess, which has pretty much doubled my download speed while downloading files encrpyted from my ISP.
The speedtest.net has shown with the VPN running with 128Mb down and 10Mb up.
Please Note The Data Encryption is BlowFish, Data Authentication is SHA256, and the Handshake is RSA-4096.
I have been told that this is not possible at all by several people, but when I go to show them the results from actually downloading a file and the speedtests, we are all confused.
Is this actually happening? As they are asking and were saying, is it the speeds which we see from the end-point of the VPN to the server which we are preforming the speed test to?
Also, I will provide screenshots of the speed test with and without the VPN also.
I am not sure if this matters or not, but it may in the end. I live in a very, very rural location in West Virginia. I am lucky to not have 256K Dail-up internet thanks to my ISP, SuddenLink. I am starting to think it could be a congestion issue with my region?
