PureVPN has upgraded its server network by adding new 20Gbps (Gigabits per second) servers in the US and the UK. Initial tests indicate a massive 2x VPN speed boost in two of the most popular VPN hotspots in the world. The upgraded 20Gbps servers are located in London, Manchester, and Washington DC, with more locations planned to go live by the end of this year.
The latest upgrade to our server infrastructure builds on top of the similar 5 Gbit and 10 Gbit upgrades last year in several key locations across Europe and America. They also made major optimizations to their server infrastructure in Australia. Pushing the VPN speeds to even greater heights. PureVPN currently ranks as one of the fastest VPN providers in Australia.
To improve our VPN infrastructure further, they shelved dozens of virtual servers from the infrastructure to offer top notch VPN experience to the user base. While virtual servers have their benefits, they fail to provide better speeds when compared to actual physical servers. New physical VPN servers are more reliable and better equipped to deliver faster speeds.
With just 69 virtual servers in the entire server network, PureVPN’s server footprint is now 98.7% composed of physical servers.
Why isn’t PureVPN going 100% physical? That is because there are a few locations where placing physical servers is realistically impossible. To become 100% physical, they would have to remove these locations altogether from the offerings. But, as per the feedback received from the users, these virtual locations are still in use for various purposes. Being a customer-centric VPN brand, PureVPN will not be removing these virtual locations until an alternative solution can be found for these users.
