I’ve setup a Droplet on the London data center with OpenVPN to secure my home connection. I followed this guide to set it up.
I don’t have a really good connection at home but the VPN is making it a lot slower. Yes, I know that a VPN will always introduce latency and make the overall Internet connection a bit slower, but by this much? For testing purposes I decided to this on my workplace which has a much better Internet connection.
Speed test results for that connection without the VPN: http://www.speedtest.net/result/5033122840.png Speed test results for that connection with the VPN: http://www.speedtest.net/result/5033141687.png
Is that download speed normal? Is that acceptable? Shouldn’t DO handle it a little bit better? I’m not expecting a download speed close to the original 400Mb/s, but at least something like 70/80Mb/s or at least 50Mb/s. Or am I asking too much?
In case it’s need, here’s my OpenVPN server.conf: https://gist.github.com/rfgamaral/357e2efd26fa9913dac3 And my OpenVPN client.ovpn (sensible information omitted): https://gist.github.com/rfgamaral/97ba5fde829a4855e915
Any help is greatly appreciated :)
