One of the common complaints about VPN is that they are slow and are unable to handle intensive downloads such as streamed High definition video content. This is true in many cases, for reasons that too the bandwidth connections to VPN server is insufficient, there are too many users accessing the VPN server simultaneously and last but not least, distance to the VPN server from your location.
However, some VPN providers such as Windscribe VPN have managed to maintain sufficient speeds to their VPN servers to handle high quality video streams and other large data downloads. Having said this, do not expect that same speeds as you get with your Internet provider if you are using fiber or 4G/5G networks, a VPN connection will be slower.
Windscribe VPN Speed Test from Stockholm to UK VPN Server
I recently did a Windscribe VPN speed test from my location in Stockholm, Sweden to a VPN server in the, United Kingdom to see if the speed was fast enough to meet my needs, since I watch the UK TV channels from Sweden and need to unblock the geo-restrictions by changing my IP address to a UK one. I was indeed satisfied with the result and was pleased to watch my favorite British TV channels from Sweden in high quality streaming without any problems at all. Please see demonstration of speed test below.
