Here we are again finding out which VPN provider has the fastest UK VPN server. So if you’re looking for a fast UK VPN server or just want to know which providers are offering decent speeds then you’ve come to the right place.
UK VPN servers are one of the most sought after locations, with tons of great content like All 4, Demand 5 and BT Sport, finding a server that can provide a fast speed is essential for those who want to stream UK content from outside.
Pretty much every VPN provider offers at least one server in the UK with many offering multiple UK VPN locations. Last month saw VPN.ac, LiquidVPN and IPVanish taking the top three spots in terms of maximum speed achieved.
No huge surprises this month, overall speeds are generally up across the board and all providers achieving speeds that are suitable for many worldwide internet connections.
Local connection speed achieved without VPN 155.44 mbps
Each provider with the exception of ExpressVPN was tested using OpenVPN with 256 bit encryption. ExpressVPN used their standard 128 bit encryption.
All tests were carried out on April 7th, 2015 between 14:00 and 15:00. Testing was carried out on a Windows 8.1 system using the custom software of each provider with the exception of Overplay and Ironsocket who were tested directly using OpenVPN.
It is important to remember that speeds achieved are an indication only and are in no way a representation of what you yourself will achieve or even what could be achieved on a different day or at a different time.
All testing is carried out from the UK and so users outside the UK are likely to receive slower speeds based on distance. Other factors such as routing can impact possible maximum speeds and so should be taken into consideration when choosing a provider.
