Hard wired download speed, via Superhub 3, drops from >100Mbs to <10 Mbps when using IPVanish VPN.
Is this normal?
Is a VPN really needed?
Needed for what?
If you are accessing geolocked content, you may need a VPN with a gateway in the region its locked to. They can help with routing if you are gaming.
Other than that- your wasting your money.

Your speed will inevitably be lower using a VPN. Some are worse than others.
It's not needed for an ordinary user...

If your a dodgy geezer, a VPN wont protect you....The expression "snake-oil" springs to mind...
