Opera VPN unusable for Australians?

  • I've seen some forums on here about problems with the VPN. But usually it's people who had it working fine to begin with then experienced issues later. For me, it has been unusably slow since day one and I have to think that it has something to do with Australia being too far from the servers used despite optimal location selected.

    Whether i'm right or not, if there is anyway to fix this and make it at least usable then that would be appreciated. I don't expect it to be as fast as it would be without using the VPN but I would like it to actually be usable!

  • Works fine for me here in New Zealand on a Windows 8.1 desktop

  • I'm in the US and Opera's "VPN" (proxy server) is so unreliable that I never use it.

  • Just in theory, could you try another VPN provider, even a free version with another user profile (So your data wouldn't be compromised) and see if it is slow with other VPN providers as well. Also, is your internet connection stable and what are the speeds?
