How did you get that speed on NordVPN?

Hi, can I find out how you got those speed with local connections? I am using NordVPN and connected to 182.something sg server using OpenVPN on my router. I used to get about 800mbps on i7 desktop but using NordVPN, it drops to about 35mbps. Can you please let me know how to get that speed? Thank you very much.

I'm using nordvpn directly on my pc instead of router.Auto connect to best server. And test using internet explorer. Nord have multiple server in sg, some got slower speed.

most importantly is what router are you using since you mentioned you are using OpenVPN on your router.

NordVpn connected to US server for Netflix streaming.
Guys if you're in Singapore you don't need to connect to US servers to watch US Netflix. Netflix is unlocked by configuring VPN providers DNS, so you can connect to the server nearby for maximum speed and by default, you will be redirected to US Netflix. If you want to connect to UK Netflix though you do have to choose a server from the UK. For example, Surfshark about a week ago unlocked AU Netflix, before that all users connected to AU servers were redirected to USA Netflix because of DNS configuration. Now they have to choose a server outside of AU closer to the country whose Netflix they want to watch. I hope I made myself clear, but if you have questions pls ask, I'm researching how VPNs work with streamings recently.

But it is dependent on vpn provider itself?

As far as I know, it depends on the VPN provider. Some of them buy the DNS servers, others just use the Google public DNS server.

I would advise asking the provider of your choice about their DNS servers, they'll should give a clear answer.

So far Surfshark and Windscribe seem to be two good value VPN options for Netflix based on the reports here.
