Slow PureVPN Internet Connection? How to Fix VPN Issues

Achieve Fastest VPN Speeds as a PureVPN User

Not being able to access the content you want or need is frustrating. It is even more frustrating when you feel like you have to choose between security or a fast, reliable Internet connection. PureVPN is designed to encrypt your data and keep it safe from many cyber threats. But, when your slow PureVPN connection is keeping you from enjoying the Internet on your terms, you need to solve this problem fast and easy.

Why do I get a slow PureVPN Internet?

There are a variety of different reasons you may be experiencing a slow PureVPN connection.

Some of the most common ones are:

  • ISP issues
  • Firewall is active
  • Server is too far
  • P2P file sharing use

PureVPN explains that as a direct consequence as all of the data being sent to and from your computer must pass through its servers to be encrypted, thus slowing your Internet connection should be expected. However, if you are experiencing more than typical slow speeds, there are several steps you can take to try and fix the problem.

Get Rid of VPN Connection Issues

You should check the speed of your connection when you are not using PureVPN to see if the problem could be unrelated to the app. If you are on Wi-Fi you will want to try connecting with a wired connection or using a different network to see if that solves the problem.

If the problem appears to be with your ISP, you can try changing the tunneling protocol your machine uses to connect to the Internet. The main protocols are PPTP, L2TP, and OpenVPN. Try and change the protocol in your settings and see if that resolves the problem.

If you believe your ISP is throttling your connection or not delivering as promised, you will need to contact them.

If your system has a firewall, it may be interfering with PureVPN and causing your slow connection. Disable any firewall on your network or system and see if that improves your connection speed.

If you are encountering a slow PureVPN connection while trying to use P2P file sharing services, you are most likely connected to a server where those services are blocked. You will need to connect to a specific server where P2P file sharing is allowed. Currently you should use a server in Turkey, Sweden, Romania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Germany, or Russia.

If none of these solutions solve your problem, you may need to seek an alternative.
