Ookla® Awards NordVPN with Speedtest® Recommended Badge for Fast Connectivity

NordVPN Becomes First VPN Service to Receive Speedtest Recommended badge

October 10, 2018. NordVPN, one of the most advanced VPN services in the world, just received the Speedtest Recommended badge for its fast connection speeds. The badge was granted by Ookla, the creator of Speedtest and global leader in internet testing, data and analysis.

NordVPN is the first VPN service to receive this badge. VPN stands for “virtual private network” – a service that encrypts Internet traffic and protects the user’s online identity.

“We’re honored to receive the Speedtest Recommended badge from Ookla. This badge proves our continued effort to provide a cost-effective, well thought-out and fast VPN service,” said Laura Tyrell, Press Officer at NordVPN. “Over the years, NordVPN has become a leading online security solution with more than 8 million users worldwide.”

Speedtest measures internet connection performance metrics such as connection speed, bandwidth and latency. The test measures download speeds (from the server to the user’s computer) and upload speeds (from the user’s computer to the server.) All tests are performed within the user’s web browser or within one of the many Speedtest apps.

Since the foundation of Speedtest in 2006, over 21 billion consumer-initiated tests have been performed. Every day, over ten million unique tests are performed across Speedtest platforms.

NordVPN is the one of the world’s most advanced VPN service providers and is more security oriented than most VPN services. It offers double VPN encryption, ad blocking, and Onion Over VPN. The user-friendly product offers one of the best prices on the market, has over 5,000 servers worldwide, and is P2P friendly. One of NordVPN’s key features is its zero log policy.

To celebrate this achievement, NordVPN launched a special deal campaign dedicated to Speedtest users.
