I recently purchased CyberGhost VPN to use on my devices PS4/TV's Etc
I have noticed that i struggle to get above the 130mb mark and that me trying to find a under used server to connect to, most the time its around the 40mb/50mb mark,
I'm on the M500 Package and can speed test a solid 566mb most the time, i have contacted Cyberghost Tech support and they have advised me that i should see around a 20/30 % decrease in total speed on VPN so be around 440mb, they have also said that Virgin Media is their most complained about provider in the UK and appears to block or restrict traffic thru it,
Is their anyway round this ? i want to hve a vpn in place for better online security, i have seen other posts stating about the router being faulty, i have another router to test ( Netgear Nighthawk r8000)
As thisis my main router an the superhub 3 is kept in modem mode only, i have tested it using the superhub 3 and got the same results.
I tried to call Virgin tech support and was advised i need to speed to someone by the automatic service then i was giving the link via text to goto the help site, i click on the section to send a message and i get punted to the home page,
I can't actually see anyways to speak to someone from Virgin Media Tech Support to ask if they are blocking port 53 or if they are blocking VPN traffic. a similar issue occurs when i connect to my company VPN also so its not just Cyberghost
the speeds reduces to around 40mb, this isn't right i have a right to use VPN services, specially for work also and this cant do,
Anyone able to shed any light or get a Virgin Tech support on Ticket ?
I have the Nighthawk X6 R8000 as my main router, would i be best to cable the laptop to it turn on the vpn and add the ip address to the DMZ for the router? i dont believe i can turn the firewall off ??
