How to switch VPN regions for faster internet

No one likes slow internet, just like nobody likes _Die Hard 2 _or that last bit of warm beer on a sunny day. We don’t like it, we don’t want it, and having to put up with it just annoys us all.

Sometimes, though, slow internet strikes. When everyone’s trying to stream the latest episode of their favourite show, or watch the Superbowl, or that 2pm lull when everyone is bored at work and trying desperately to procrastinate online – all these things drag speeds down and leave you frustrated.

That’s the thing about the internet: We share it. For better or worse, it’s for everyone. And sometimes, it feels like everyone is trying to use it all at once.

But did you know that switching regions on your VPN can help you to avoid slow connections?

That’s right. When you turn on SurfEasy VPN, you’ll be connected to one of 13 regions. This stops the internet from knowing your real location, meaning that you can access content from that region, even if that content is geo-restricted.

However, this also means that you can switch from one region to the next (and the next, and the next) to see which region gives you the fastest connection at that particular time. If everyone in your home country is waking up, checking their Facebook and slowing down your connection, flip to the UK, or Australia, and keep your browsing as swift as you want it to be.

Best of all, we don’t charge you to switch regions, and we don’t restrict the amount of regions you can access. All 13 regions are open to all users – and we’re always working on expanding our range of regions too.

So don’t let slow connections keep you down. Switch up regions as much as you like, and rest in the knowledge that you’re protected while you do so.
