  • All our OpenVPN servers use DHE for perfect forward secrecy
  • OpenVPN re-keying is performed every 60 minutes

Very pleased with ( Swedish ) Mullvad's privacy policies, convenience and, in particular, speed. There is relatively little speed degradation compared with other VPN services I have tested, probably about 15-20%. I am usually on a 1GB/1GB fiber connection.

In my own testing, I had problems with VPN speed degradation with other services often >30-40%. Not sure why; not worth troubleshooting. Mullvad shined, so went with them.

Recall, VPNs have significant overhead which impacts practical speed levels.

This is the very best and most flexible of all of the VPNs I have tried. The support is outstanding. It might not be as pretty as some but it is deadly effective. Only minimally slows down downloads or uploads. Many ways to configure. Catalina perfect. Low RAM and CPU usage. Regular and frequent updates. Does not require any personal info for purchase or registration. No ads for itself or anyone else. Dump the rest and give this Mullvad a serious try.
