Internet Speed and NordLayer

I tested my internet connection with and without NordLayer VPN to compare speed using Cloudflare’s new tool. Here are the results.

NordLayer Home
Download 40.7 Mbps 80.5 Mbps
Upload 13.4 Mbps 16.6 Mbps
Latency 89.1 ms 21.1 ms
Jitter 4.41 ms 3.33 ms
Packet Loss 0% 0%
Video Streaming Average Average
Online Gaming Average Poor
Video Chatting Good Average

There’s quite a large drop in download speed and increase in latency when using the VPN which is to be expected.
