CyberGhost, at first look, is an exciting VPN. It has a vast amount of servers and locations and offers optimised servers for torrents, access to streaming, and aesthetically pleasing applications supported on multiple platforms. CyberGhost is one of the few VPNs that offer servers hosted in a data centre they fully own. Servers hosted in this data centre are classed as “NoSpy” servers.

They also offer a “Privacy Browser” and a “Security Suite for Windows.” We can check this out another time. In this guide, we want to test VPN speeds over multiple locations.

CyberGhost is a speedy VPN, maybe not as fast as some others, but still up there with the top VPNs on the market. We found when testing we regularly ran into servers that had been far slower, and I assume this was purely down to load. A quick disconnect/reconnect took us to a new server with fast speeds again,

The connection process takes around 2/3 seconds, and for the most part, it was very smooth. Occasionally connecting to locations far away, the connection process takes a little longer; this is understandable.

We also tested servers optimised for specific activities, such as the download and streaming servers. We found these servers very fast, sometimes faster than the main server list.
