As some of you know I am interested in using a VPN for most of my internet queries. Recently I changed to ExpressVPN. Selected "Using only ExpressVPN servers" (selected in Options of ExpressVPN) my home internet speed went from 75 to 200+ when measured by Ookla Speedtest. Tested several times with similar results. Next test will be the RV Pepwave setup to see if I can slip by the VZW throttles for a faster internet experience.

I have tried several Paid and Free VPNs. This is the only one that has delivered low latency and faster browser speed as measured by Speedtest.

Thanks Joe! We've been using NordVPN for the past few years. Our speeds have been really good. Really good means we have had DSL in our neighborhood for the last 8 years and 4 months ago got Comcast Xfinity. DSL literally was like using AOL in the mid-1990's for speed. I could not believe that in the Atlanta area a county still had DSL as the only option.

Anywho, We set up NordVPN and it's worked really well. I'll look at the expressvpn when we are up for renewal. BTW, Nord does allow use on iPad, iPhones, etc. Very handy when traveling.

DW & I use Freedome VPN for 3 years now. Protects 3 devices (2 phones and her laptop) & seems to do good job. Haven't done a speed test but with Verizon Hotspots on the phones we stay connected. We have found most campgrounds claim to have WiFi but it is usually at the office and weak at the fringes. With online finances, a VPN is a necessary safety. We won't use remote chargers for the phones because they can download malware onto the phone. Crazy times!

Looks like I can get decent Speed through the ExpressVPN network in the RV over the PepWave router on Verizon. I am in a city looking at a Verizon tower.
