If you use openvpn on the router, the speed could be low.
For mini routers it could be less than 10Mbps.
For B1300, MT1300 the speed could goes up around 20Mbps.
For MV1000 the speed could goes up to 50-60Mbps
If you want faster speed, please choose Wireguard, which is easily able to achieve 40Mbps+ on the mini routers.
On B1300, MV1000 it goes to 200Mbps+

Pls note, the app stores all the VPN profiles locally, not on the router. Your phone has much more storage space than the router.
