***After Downloading & Installing Blokada 5, I realized that it uses a VPN in order to block ads and trackers.
So my first thought was, is this free apps VPN connection going to be fast. Since I have tried many free vpns in the past and most of them drastically reduce your connection speed…
So immediately after installing and activating Blokada, I decided to run a speed test to see if in fact the connection speed is reduced. Well it definitely is…
With Blokada activated, the average download speed is only 8 or 9 Mbps. With Blokada Deactivated, my connection speed is 40 to 50 Mbps!
(I’ve now ran this test about 10 times over the past few days)
I this normal? Is the VPN connection Blokada is using always this slow?***
I saw no mention or alerts that using Blokada will reduce your connection speed
- Since when are you facing this issue?
Immediately after installing
