RUSVPN is a multidisciplinary company with a Russian-speaking support service that develops products to ensure the security of Internet surfing.

The main purpose of DNS servers is to convert domain names of sites into IP addresses to which these domains are assigned. Simply put, by entering the Google.com domain in the browser, the DNS server monitors which IP address is assigned to the domain, and the site page is loaded via IP address.

Servers and Locations

RUS VPN has a limited server network – only 400 servers. They are located in 58 countries mainly the USA and European counties).

RUSVPNIndustry average
Number of Countries3060
Number of Server Locations120
Number of Servers12601000

In general, the data are contradictory. The number of servers is higher than the industry average. But the number of countries is less than 2 times. Thus, we can assume that the speed will be significantly below the industry average.

Speed tests

Different VPN providers – or even different servers from the same provider – can show wildly different speed and ping results.

The main parameters that determine the final speed are the distance to the VPN server, its type, and quality, as well as the speed of your Internet connection. Sometimes other variables may also be mixed into the equation, such as large blocks of data that require a lot of server power to process.

Download speed

Here we provide data on 52 countries from 223. The test results of downloads are presented below.

The difference in regional data is rather essential. So, the average speed for all countries was 29.92 Mbps, and the average data for regions:

  • for the Americas – 23.79 Mbps;
  • for Europe – 29.98 Mbps;
  • for the Asia Pacific – 33.98 Mbps.

But the data are very scattered. In particular, the minimal and maximal speed for regions were as follows:

  • for the Americas – min 1.34 Mbps (Argentins), max 67.32 Mbps (Canada);
  • for Europe – min 0.9 Mbps (France), max 121.2 Mbps (Norway);
  • for the Asia Pacific – min 3.31 (Saudia Arabia), max – 103.13 Mbps (Russia).

Upload speed

The difference in the average regional data is not essential. So, the average speed for all countries was 8.03 Mbps, and the average data for regions:

  • for the Americas – 6.708 Mbps;
  • for Europe – 8.63 Mbps;
  • for the Asia Pacific – 7.36 Mbps.

In general, they are close to the average for all countries of 8.03 Mbps.

But the data are very scattered. In particular, the minimal and maximal speed for regions were as follows:

  • for the Americas – min 1.17 Mbps (Argentins), max 11.61 Mbps (Canada);
  • for Europe – min 0.36 Mbps (France), max 19.38 Mbps (Norway);

Ping out test

It is important not only the small value of time in milliseconds, small ping, but also the stability of this value, the absence of significant jumps in performance, and, moreover, packet loss.

It is convenient to use the online ping test to check the unavailability of a site only from your computer, or for everyone on the Internet.

VPNRUS is an outsider because the average ping exceeds the other VPNs 3.3 times.

DNS Leak Test

Even without obvious errors and security flaws, there is always a DNS leak problem (which can be caused by poor operating system settings, user error, or VPN provider error).

Streaming

We carried out the tests on streaming unblocking by VPN. We studied countries from the Americas, Europe, and the Asia Pacific (the USA, UK, Japan, and South Korea). Unfortunately, this VPN did not work in these regions.

Torrenting

Sharing files through Torrent can be dangerous, as far as your IP may be open for hacking. VPNs should hide your IP and personal data to avoid hacking and accusations of violating copyright laws.

BitTorrent with RUSVPN

We considered here the following options:

  • file size 3.5 GB;
  • number of seeders 0.581;
  • download speed 1.1 MB/s
  • complete time 55 min 51 s.

We managed to complete a file of 3.5 GB for 55 min 51 s. This time exceeds the average industry complete time of approximately 22 min for a file of the same size.

uTorrent with RUS VPN

To provide the same test conditions, we tried to complete the file of the same size.

  • file size 3.5 GB;
  • number of seeders 0.517;
  • download speed 967.1 kB/s;
  • complete time 1 h 6 min.

Here the results were dismal too. We completed the file of 3.5 GB for 1 h 6 min, this time is bigger than the average of 1.5 times.
