It definitely can – in my experience VPN’s can be a bit slower than your normal connection, especially if your connection is slow to begin with. After fiddling with the settings a bit and getting help from customer support, it’s usually possible to get a speed going that’s close to or as fast as the native speed of the network you’re on. Keep in mind that VPN encrypts your connection, so more work is being done – added security comes at a cost, and that includes a slight loss in speed.
