Avast SecureLine boosts speed and performance

Jas Dhaliwal, 12 July 2018

Avast SecureLine VPN users get privacy, security, and now a faster speed thanks to more servers.

In order to provide the best VPN experience we can, we keep a close eye on our network, scaling capacities as needed. We deploy new servers on a weekly basis, which increases bandwidth and shortens the distance data has to travel to enter our network. This shorter travel time speeds up your connection. Yes, it’s now acceptable to use the words VPN and fast in the same sentence. VPNs get a bad rap for slowing down the browser experience, and we’re here to dispel that myth. In fact, we just upgraded our busiest servers in Europe to 10 Gbps connectivity for each individual server adding a total of 250 Gbps of network capacity.

Over the last 8 weeks alone, we have added new servers in Australia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, South Korea, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey, and the United States. See our full list here.

We also continuously test new hosting facilities and uplink providers to compare their connectivity so we can improve the network performance, delivering faster VPN connections to you.

SecureLine users should notice that our Chicago location just got much faster as we just migrated to a shiny new hosting facility in that area.

The safest way to uphold your privacy and protect yourself online is by using a VPN. And here’s our promise — if you continue standing up for your own safety by using sensible tools like Avast SecureLine VPN, we’ll continue upgrading and improving the technology on a daily basis to fulfill our mission of strong cybersecurity for everybody.
