Hello everyone, I am not sure if any of you have gone through a recent VPN speed test. I was looking out for a VPN that is fast enough and does not bother me while downloading torrent files.
Did some research and found out that NordVPN according to the VPN speed test has been ranked as the No.1 in terms of speed.
Further on digging more into it I got some the best VPN for Torrenting which also mentioned NordVPN to be the fastest and top of the rankings.
Discussed at a few more platforms and I was nearing the decision-making process on which one to get. Since I was too sick and tired of the buffered VPN which I previously used as it always disturbed my default internet settings after I have disconnected it and above all, it was not that fast as well for torrenting.

If anyone needs a VPN for torrenting I would highly recommend going out for NordVPN service. At $3.99/month I believe it is value for money.

Cool. I might do some testing too and see speed results on my end. What tool did you use to measure speed?

Talking about the fastest VPN. Ivacy VPN won the award for the fastest VPN of 2019. It does not keep any traffic logs or monitor user activity. It is very explicit about which metadata is recorded and that includes timestamps, amount of data transferred, and the server location. It does not record IP addresses.

As of this year, truly enough, NordVPN still stands out the fastest VPN service according to this research.

NordVPN is a good VPN, but I prefer Veepn. it has a good speed too. In addition, this VPN can work on 10 devices at the same time, from IOS to Linux.

Just a heads up on Nord VPN.

It will disable your UFW (firewall) when activated. So this is not a problem when you use NordVPN because you do not need the firewall then.
The Firewall will be restored with its normal settings when you do not use VPN...BUT it requires you to restore your firewall after reboot!


NordVPN replaces Iptables to work with the VPN connection.

Not a biggie when using Linux but worth knowing.

Why? You say...It is probably to ensure that torrents are not blocked by all the forces that want to block them :confused
