  • thinking.. what is the point of pia vpn if your on optus cable internet service that onlys provides bandwidths of less than 30 Mbps in downloads and 2mps uploads. everytimei use it and connect to a foreign servers, it lags. Am I doing something wrong?

    • Depends on what you’re using it for and what your expectations are. A VPN will always slow your internet down, it will slow it down less if you use a local server, but it will still slow it down. It’s not an issue if you’re downloading things but streaming can take a bit of a dive. I think you can complain to PIA if it’s too slow though.
