    Vultr has doubled it's bandwidth quota for Sydney and Tokyo regions, so I decided to setup a test CentOS 7 Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 LEMP server on 1GB Vultr KVM VPS plan in Sydney and install and setup a L2TP over IPSec PSK based VPN Sydney locale server :)

    Windows 8 desktop had maximum strength data encryption set and Centmin Mod LEMP stack's CSF Firewall is running as well.

    This is the speed for Windows 8 Laptop from Vultr Sydney VPN - it's approximately 1/2 the speed of my non-VPN straight Telstra Cable ISP connection which ~115-118Mbps download and 2.4Mbps up. Slightly slower than my Brisbane OpenVPN server at 65+Mbps down.

    This is speed from my Android 4.2.2 Zopo ZP999 Mobile from Vultr Sydney VPN

    Surprisingly, on mobile the Vultr Sydney VPN is actually faster than my Brisbane based OpenVPN VPS server which gets around 33-45Mbps down despite ping times in Brisbane being 12-18ms vs Sydney 23-34ms :)

    From Windows 8 laptop speedtest from Sydney VPN VPS server to Los Angeles Time Warner Cable location very decent

    Sydney KVM VPS bandwidth quotas now - for Australia based server very nice bandwidth quotas paired with decent speed :)

    It's still the slower 2.40Ghz clocked processors, but for VPN usage it's fine and doesn't necessarily need 3.4+Ghz cpus.
