VPN Accelerator Setup

The VPN Accelerator is designed to work for customers who are running a VPN router such as the Netgear R7000 or Asus RT-AC56U and have a relatively high local speed and whose ISP does very little to throttle external connections. The best test for what kinds of speeds you will receive on the VNP Accelerator is to run your VPN service directly from your computer and run 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 support technicians to determine your needs.
