Slowdowns are natural for any VPN because the signal travels more. The closer you are to the VPN server, the higher is the speed. Please use the nearest countries for best results. Also, Premium servers are much faster. You can buy Premium and test it risk-free: we have a 7-day money-back guarantee, so we will refund if you're not satisfied.
When I start VPN connection via any serve, I can't connect to ant website, even google page. but i disconected it, i can open webpage. i think i didn't connect VPN actually, but the addons can not show the connect status.
