I bought the 3 year plan for $41.40
I've had it 2 days and the Torrenting is SLOW !!

When Torrent with no VPN I get 15 MiB/sec
When I use Surf Shark I get 1.2 MiB/sec

I selected the P2P tab then clicked the "Fastest P2P Location".
I also manually tried servers in nearby states.

Disappointed.

Here are the Screen Shots:

There is no "P2P tab" nor any "Fastest P2P Location" to click.

@ccdeviney you're either kind of a moron or a troll for not knowing the product and implying I am lying.

There is in fact a "P2P tab" and a "Fastest P2P Location" button.
Have you even used the product ??

I screenshot the pathetic P2P download speeds I've been getting since I signed up 4 days ago.
To everyone else out there just know torrenting speeds have been very low for me.

I am using V2.4.7 of the Surfshark client on my PC and it doesn't look like your screen capture. What version are you using and are you using it on Window...or something else? I use it daily, so I do know the product. Have you tried changing the the connection protocol (UDP or IKEv2)? I use IKEv2 and have no problems with speed.

The quote that I sent "All servers are P2P-friendly" is directly from the Surfshark website.

I am not a moron nor am I a troll nor did I imply that you were lying.

I know that you are frustrated and I am sorry that it hasn't worked out for you.

Surfshark offers a 30 day refund, so maybe just chat with them or send them an email and ask that they cancel your account and refund your payment.

I pay Suddenlink for 100down/7.5up and here is the speed test that I just did:

I am using the latest version of Surfshark for Mac.
Perhaps their Mac App just sucks.

If I turn off Surfshark VPN my speeds go up 10x.
It's too bad because $41 for 3 years is an awesome price.

Did you try UDP and IKEv2?

You might have to 'test drive' a few different ones and see what works best for you. I have a lifetime sub to Windscribe and I tried NordVPN, both of which many people love. Both were TOO SLOW for me and too many websites were blocked.

SurfShark Mac only supports IKEv2. It does not allow you to switch protocols.

WARNING: There is no return on this. 30 day trial does not apply.
Once you activate their code to try it there is no return
I am stuck with slow 1.2 MiB downloads.

Don't Buy !!
