Speed7.0

Why Most Speed Tests are Pointless & How We Correctly Test VPN Speeds

Speed determines how fast content uploads, so if you're torrenting or streaming, you want the speed to be somewhat identical to your regular internet speed. Since a VPN encrypts your data, it usually takes a bit longer to send your data back and forth, which can slow down your connection. However, if your ISP deliberately slows down your connection (also known as throttling) a VPN might increase your internet speed. Testing a VPN is somewhat pointless because new servers pop up and affect speed. Your speed can also differ according to your location, so your speed test might not match ours. Having said that, we tested the speed in numerous locations to provide you with the average.

User Experience7.8

Smarty DNS is easy to install and use. It has apps for all major platforms including Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and Fire TV. For other platforms such as Smart TVs, Playstation, Xbox, and routers, you’ll need to do a manual configuration.

Installation can take 2-10 minutes depending on the platform. The apps are easy to use, and you don’t need to be an expert to work on Smarty DNS.

It’s important to note that Smarty DNS is basically a Smart DNS service. They mention in their terms and conditions that the VPN service is just an added bonus and they might stop it when they want.

The speeds are good, and there is a knowledge base, and FAQ section that has will help you out if you face any issues. And if you don’t find enough data there, you can always contact the customer support team.

How We Test Customer Support and Why Should You Care

We personally test the customer support team of every VPN we review. This means asking technical question through the live chat feature (where applicable) and measuring the response time for email questions. Whether you need to connect to a specific server, change your security protocol, or configure a VPN on your router, finding a VPN with quality customer support should be important to you.
