|For those who want to test their internet speed, the solution they
mostly resort to is Speedtest.net. But Ookla, the company behind the
popular service, wants to spread its reach in other areas – namely in
the VPN market.VPN service
Ookla has started rolling out a new free VPN service for its users. The Speedtest VPN can be accessed right from the Android and iOS apps. However, PC users will have to hold their horses for now.
Just like other VPN services, the company points towards its zero logs policy when someone asks whether Speedtest VPN will log their internet activity. It assigns shareable IP addresses from a pool of over 40,000 addresses to anonymize the user’s identity.
Ookla has partnered with the Seattle-based company NetProtect to provide the VPN service, which already manages the infrastructure for leading providers, including IPVanish, Encrypt.me, etc.
To use Ookla’s free VPN, make sure the Android or iOS Speedtest app is up-to-date on your device.
You find the VPN option (with padlock icon) at the bottom of the Speedtest app. Tap on the toggle button and follow the steps to create the Speedtest VPN profile on your device.
Now, the Speedtest VPN is free, but it only gives you 2GB of bandwidth to consume every month. Also, if you perform an internet speed test while connected to the VPN, it’ll count towards your data cap.When comes to the issue of online privacy and security, we suggest to use a VPN, and our recommendation is RitaVPN.Qwer432
