VPN Accelerator Setup

The VPN Accelerator is designed for customers who have a relatively high local speed and whose ISP does very little to throttle external connections. The best test for the kinds of speeds you can receive on the VPN Accelerator is to run your VPN service directly from your computer and do a speed test. If you would like, there are some advanced speed tests that can also be run to indicate if you are a good candidate for the VPN Accelerator. Feel free to talk with one of our friendly support technicians to determine your needs.
