How do I speed up my VPNinja connection?

Tony San -

There are a few major things you can do, as a VPNinja user, to optimize the speed of your VPNinja connection.

 

Step 1) Make sure you are on a fast network.

Whether it's Wifi, 3G, LTE, Edge, or GPRS - the speed of the network you're connected to will heavily impact the performance of your connection. 
 
 
Why?  Think of your network as a large highway.  VPNinja is creating an "HOV" lane of sorts, carving an encrypted path for you on that highway so that no one can see your "car" as you travel along the road.  However, even though your car is invisible you are still limited by the traffic on the highway you travel along.  The slower your basic Internet connection, the slower VPNinja will seem.  
 

Step 2) Try switching servers

Just like any Highway, VPNinja follows the available routes to our servers located around the globe.  In countries like China, for instance, there are a limited number of network connections available back to the US or the UK, and Chinese internet providers often follow complicated routing paths to foreign countries to make it easier to block sites.  As a result, some servers perform faster than others depending on your original connection point.
 
 
By switching servers what you're actually doing is looking for the fastest-possible route to the open internet.
 

There are two ways to switch your server address.  

  1. Method 1 is to simply select a new server from your OpenVPNinja client (the little blinking man).
  2. Method 2 is to manually switch your server address if you are using an L2TP connection.  Here is a list of our L2TP server addresses.

 

Abunai, Ninja! The country you connect to will determine what web-based services you will have access to!  

So if you would like to connect with US-based services such as Hulu, Netflix, Rdio, Spotify, etc - make sure to choose a US-based server address.  If you would like to connect to UK's iBBC player - choose a UK-based server address.
