When picking a VPN provider, one of the key aspects to consider is the speeds it provides, in particular, the download speed. No matter how great your VPN is, it must be good enough for streaming your favorite video content. Otherwise, it makes no sense to utilize it.
Well, Avast does well on that. Despite the small number of servers, all of them provide great speeds. In fact, some reviewers even ranked Avast among top 10 fastest providers. The company also says they put their servers through stress tests and see average speeds of 450-600 Mbits per second.
So, for our Avast VPN review, we decided to experience Avast’s speeds ourselves and checked a few of their gateways in the US, Europe, and Japan.
The results for the Seattle server: download – 66.78 Mbps, upload – 14.01 Mbps. The Swedish server showed us the following: download – 65.88 Mbps, upload – 38.04 Mbps. The Japanese server performed somewhat worse: 30.02 Mbps when downloading and 29.01 while uploading. This is good enough if compared to some other VPNs. In fact, the results are average.
