My experience doesn't match the authors at all. My first VPN PureVPN had great speeds in my opinion. Once I learned it has logs I quit ofc., but the service was not 6/10 in my experience. Other VPN I loved ProtonVPN is not even on list. Also great speeds, seem safe and secure because its same company as ProtonMail we all know and trust! Lastly I use NordVPN right now and my speed loss is nearly inexistent. It has many features and superb customer support, I do not think this review is fair. I suggest giving all these services another shot - NordVPN and Proton has trials, Nord also has 30 day refund guarantee so it doesn't cost anything to try. Pure has no trial, but I don't know, you have a budget for these things anyway probably.
