I've got 0.90Mbps speed for Japanese server.
I don't recommend this VPN.

Anyone having issues trying to run this on DDWRT? It drops often and have trouble reconnecting. Even after reconnect the speed is slow. I am considering requesting a refund.

Exact same issue here. I happen to be using dd-wrt x86. And as you explain it, that's the problem w/ this VPN provider. Connections drop often, w/ slow reconnects. On the good side, when it's connected, I get very good speed (140Mbps of my ISP's 150Mbps). But I suspect that's only because connections drop so often, the servers are always lightly loaded!

Ended up switching to ExpressVPN; a much different experience. Yeah, not the cheapest, but connections almost never drop, and when they do (sometimes of my own choosing, so I'm never connected to the same server for too long, just part of my "stealthy" strategy), reconnects usually occur within 2 secs! And while I don't get the same throughput of FastestVPN, it's amazingly consistent (~80-85Mbps w/ US servers).

The only thing I would use FastestVPN for at this point is testing and development (which still makes it worth having for my purposes). But as a daily driver? No way. All the dropped connections and slow reconnects are just intolerable.

Yea I gave up on fastestvpn on ddwrt. I ended up just controlling the VPN from the individual computers and phone instead. It's more consistently connected that way. though there are still drops and no connects here and there. I will keep this for now until November deals. IDK how you get such high speed. Mine does not go over 15 mbps

Probably because I'm running dd-wrt x86 (iow, off a PC platform).

Your typical consumer router is not capable of achieving the performance of a full blown PC. Because the VPN runs in user-space rather than the kernel, it has to constantly switch between user-space and the kernel to manage the tunnel, and that absolutely KILLS performance on these relatively crappy routers. An old MIPS router from say 6-7 years ago using w/ 300MHz processor would be lucky to get 3-6Mbps. My ASUS RT-AC68U w/ 800MHz (ARM) processor gets 35-40Mbps (under ideal conditions). If you want even better, you need even more horsepower. But *nothing* can compete w/ the desktop in terms of what's possible. And which is why I moved the OpenVPN client on my ASUS RT-AC68U to a small form-factor PC running dd-wrt x86. The fact I can easily achieve 140Mbps (and probably a lot more if it wasn't for the limitations of my ISP) proves the point.

Even if I run fastestvpn on my computer I still don't get speed above 15mbps
