Hi all, for Surfshark VPN users, what is the fastest US server that you use? I use the San Fran server and it seems the speed over VPN drops significantly.

What is your expectation? As long as you get above 25Mbps and stable, that is not bad already.

My paid purevpn LA server, SingTel speedtest server, so it is kind of round trip, single connection


Free Astrill Android VPN LA sever is much faster. Same speedtest settings.

Actually I did the network speed test in the netflix app after using the smartdnsproxy (got something like 60+mbps) but still not getting 4k quality (tested using the "test pattern").

Without the smart dns, it was around 150mbps (not problem getting 4k resolution)

Does surfshark has trial? can pm me a code? thanks!

Do you mean the OpenVPN server on Asus routers? You need to have a good one with powerful CPU which can do encryption work fast in order to have good OpenVPN performance, like Asus RT-AC86U.

The performance is very good and can be around 200Mbps. New AX router like the AX88U and AX86U should offer similar performances.

Ref:
https://www.snbforums.com/threads/op...t-ac86u.41217/

So basically, expect around 200 Mbps of throughput for RT-AC86U (I doubt the GT-AC5300's extra cores will make any real difference, OpenVPN being single threaded). That's about 4x faster than the RT-AC68U, and probably around 3x faster than the RT-AC88U/RT-AC3100/RT-AC5300.
