After several speed tests with all protocols separately speed was not satisfactory and was rather bad. Average speed ranges between 100KB & 400KB per second regardless of location of server. Among all protocols Open VPN`s speed was best of all. It was between 2MB to 10MB per second depending upon the distance to the VPN server. The speed was fastest for closest servers. As a result of testing on UDP Open VPN and L2TP provided best speeds. According to Private internet access review during downloading of large files speed was found to be constant. For those who are looking for using L2TP/IPSec, they are required to use traditional connection ways through L2TP. Setup of L2TP VPN takes few moments. Difference between L2TP and Open VPN speeds is quite small. Open VPN is therefore recommended because its security level is higher.
