I'm just trying Freedome for PC, my internet connection is by optical fiber, usually 480/180 mb/s PC connected via ethernet (gigabit), using Freedome brings my connection down to a lousy 38 mb/s,
AV is FS, fwall native windows 8.1
any idea ?
I have a similar problem. I am connected to a 100 mbps connection and it gets killed by Freedome for PC. I think that connecting to a closer US location would help alleviate this problem, however, that's not an option right now because US locations are not currently available in beta. Even my 4G connection over Verizon's network is faster with Freedome for Android. I hope the connection will get faster for Freedome for PC soon.
Thanks for the input.
Could you try to connect with a mobile device (Android or IOS ) to the same networks?
Let us know if the bandwidth drops are as significant.
Keep in mind that this is still in Beta(constantly working on it), and VPN solutions usually come with a noticeable network overhead.
Huge props to the F-secure Freedome team for adding US West Coast! I'm currently running on a university network. Since the new location addition I can see far less indications of a slow connection. In fact, I can't even tell that I'm connected to the VPN at all. The connection is that good! Thanks again for adding US locations, huge, huge difference in speed now. I can't wait to see what other improvements come in the future either.
Im using Freedome on android 4.4.4. software in Finnish carrier network. Freedome is significantly slowing down my download speeds up till 1/10th of the original downloadspeed. In numbers, with Freedome on I get download speeds ranging 3-4mbt/s and without Freedome 30-60mbt/s. I have tried to change virtual location to various countries but It does not seem to help. Can you help me sort out this connectivity problem?
I do not think there is any solution at the moment because bandwdwith with a VPN on depends mostly on the VPN servers network and own bandwidth, imo Freedome needs a fast numerous servers network, which it desperately lacks, to be usable.
