Opera GX have really slow download speed

  • So I started using Opera GX not really long ago. I was downloading some files, everything is OK, about 6 - 7 Mb/s. Then after some time this speed dropped drastically to about 50 - 100 kb/s. Moreover when I'm whatching YT or browsing somethig, internet also feels much slower. IT'S NOT internet's fault. When I'm downloading games from for ex. Epic Games Store/Steam or other browsers it's still 6 - 7 Mb/s. Do you maybe know what I can do, or is it temporary bug? I could change my main browser, but I really liked Opera, so can you halp me in any way?
    Thank you in advance!

  • Re: Opera GX have really slow download speed

    Why is the Opera GX download speed so slow in comparison to other browsers?

  • I am with the same problem, actually Im using Chrome to download my files.

  • So @dtorres553 and @BernardoCoppe So my problem was beacuse of turned on VPN. Back when I wrote this post I had accidently VPN put on Asia. But VPN still doesn't work perectly, even on optimal location, so try just turning it on. It worked in my case 🙂 So the question here should be why VPN slows internet down so much? (Sorry for my bad english)
