PIA OpenVPN No Encryption

Just received my 300M - was able to setup OpenVPN with PIA, but it’s very slow, less than 5 Mbps. My plan was to use the 300M only for streaming video.

I’m thinking that if I turned off encryption that I could significantly increase my speed. And since I’m only using the VPN connection for streaming video, do I need to be concerned about no encryption?

And specifically (assuming no one tells me my plan is stupid / crazy), specifically how would I disable encryption?


Most people use a VPN to hide their tracks, including hiding (changing) their IP. Personally, I think turning off encryption IS stupid.
If you still wish to turn off encryption, then contact your provider.
