VPN speeds depend on a number of things ranging from the type of VPN to local internet speed, the distance you are from the VPN (from your location to the server in Singapore), latency, etc.

What kind of speeds are you receiving without the VPN (i.e. using just your local connection)? What kind of VPN did you setup, and which guide did you follow to set up the VPN?

Hello, thank you for reply.
I'm in Hangzhou city in China. Using 50Mbps China mobile internet provider.

"What kind of VPN did you setup, and which guide did you follow to set up the VPN?" Is a bit hard question for me but I can show you the code , it's here:

I made my mi router as VPN router. Yeah it works and I have access to YouTube, Facebook, Google etc, ( if someone doesn't know, it's blocked in China), but the speed is much slower then other VPN services. I would prefer to pay for my own one, so very interested how to make it fast.
