In this article we are going to do a speedtest with NordVPN. We used a XPS15 Dell laptop with a maximum internet speed of 100 Mbit down and 100 Mbit upload speed.
Here you can find the results with a single VPN connection, so we are not using multihop. The tests are performed from the Netherlands. So locations like USA, Brazil, Canada and Japan are more then 9000 Km away. The closest servers will always give the fastest results.

The results of this speedtest with NordVPN are exceptional. NordVPN offers the best results we have seen. We see very consistent results around the world. The tests are performed with the Ookla speedtest tool at https://www.speedtest.net. The use of a VPN will have a negative impact on your internet performance in general. However Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will reduce internet speeds with certain portocols. Some of these protocols are Torrenting, streaming of movies and FTP. In general NordVPN will reduce your speed by 10%, which is a very score. But all of this depends on the location you are connected to and how far you are from this location. The further you are from a location the more latency you get, see the ping results above, and the more time it takes to send packets from source to destination.
