Speeds from Pacific Islands to SF drop by 50-75% when you turn VPN on, have changed servers several times, speed go back up then they start to mess with your speeds. Just now 516 down, 5402 up with VPN, turn off VPN, 1274 down, 14758 up - big difference. I think they throttle connections no matter what their PR folks say. They do have very good up times but the speeds are not making me happy.
Speed from the US servers to the Middle East is very slow. Speed consistently drops at least 75% with VPN turned on.
