Servers and Locations

This VPN positions itself as one of the best VPNs. There are only 60 servers, located in 30 countries (mainly developed ones).

Header LabelGoose VPNIndustry average
Number of Countries3060

Number of Servers601000

The number of servers is 16.7 times less than the industry average. It means that potentially it will not provide big upload and download speeds.

Speed tests

When using a VPN connection, you can sometimes notice a decrease in page loading speed, this is especially noticeable when loading heavy sites and media resources. In such situations, watching videos online becomes simply unbearable, and disabling the VPN is not always convenient, and in some cases unacceptable.

Ping out time

A normal ping is a visual confirmation that a particular network element is working properly. The value of this indicator depends both on the quality of coverage of your operator and the load on its network, and on the sites themselves that you access. Ping is also directly related to the remoteness of the server: the farther it is physically, the greater the delay.

DNS Leak Test

When using HTTPS or SSL, your HTTP traffic is encrypted, i.e. secure (not perfect, but secure). When you use a VPN, all your traffic is completely encrypted (of course, the level and quality of protection depend on the correct VPN setup, but usually everything is configured and working correctly).

But there are situations in which even when using a VPN, your DNS requests are transmitted in the clear, unencrypted. This opens up great opportunities for the attacker to be creative.

Streaming

Many streamers prefer to use VPNs during their live broadcasts. But streaming in high quality requires stable VPN operation and high traffic consumption, and not all services are able to cope with this task.

We tested this VPN on streaming for the USA (the Americas), UK (Europe), and Japan and South Korea (the Asia Pacific).
