Speed Test #1 – SpeedTest by Oookla
Ookla Speed Tests are used by millions each day to collect information about the performance and quality of networks.
Ookla clocked a download speed of 303.89 Mbps and an upload speed of 104.86 Mbps for the ProtonVPN Server.
Speed Test #2 – FAST.com
Netflix launched its own Speed Test Site in 2016 and called it Fast.com.
The main aim here is to focus on download speed, which is the important metric that determines Netflix’s user’s video quality.
So if you are concerned about video streaming download, then this speed test is for you.
ProtonVPN Switzerland Server clocked a 69 Mbps download speed, which is perfectly acceptable if you use it for Netflix viewing.
In another experiment connected to a USA Miami Server, the download speed test was a whopping 150Mbps.
In other words, you can try out different countries servers to suit your speed preferences.
