Who doesn’t love a fast server?
We can’t give you an answer to this question, because we are more than sure that this person wasn’t born yet.
Nowadays, time is very important for us, as we live “fast”, while trying to make the most out of every moment. We don’t have time to spend in a traffic jam, waiting in line or… waiting for a website to load.
ibVPN treasures your time and tries to improve its service as much as possible, that’s why we are making the most out of the time we spend at work. ?
What is the Fastest Server feature?
The biggest challenge when using a VPN service is speed and reliability of the connection. In order to have a connection, we need to be connected to a server, yeah… Captain Obvious works for ibVPN. So, the speed of the server is crucial for a strong and satisfying connection.
Because we like our servers to be as many as possible, never down and super-fast, a while ago we have decided to implement a feature which, based on an algorithm, makes the app decide which server is faster for your location and will connect to it. This is usually the most responding server.
The fundamental principle of this algorithm is based on a calculation between the server load (the number of users that are already connected to a server, plus its bandwidth) and the server ping. As soon as the server is validate as being the fastest for your location, you will be connected to it.
This useful feature is now added to all of our Apps and because we are good folks, we couldn’t leave it to play all alone, so we have included its friend too, the fastest favorites feature.
The fastest favorite feature helps you connect to the fastest server, which is selected between the servers you have already included in the list of Favorite Servers. Please note that in order to have this feature active, you need to have at least two favorite servers selected from the server list.
