It is a tradition to test the download speeds of the different VPN providers by the start of the year. And so we are here in January 2020, and we were really looking forward to performing the speed test on SurfsharkVPN. Not just because of the general interest in the topic, but because we got very mixed results during our SurfsharkVPN speed tests at the end of 2018 and in the start of 2019. So, how did the SurfsharkVPN speed test in January 2020 succeed?
If you have followed our blog, you probably know that SurfsharkVPN is one of the VPN providers we recommend most frequently. Not because of their download speeds, but because they are one of the best at unblocking websites and streaming services such as Disney+, Amazon Prime, Netflix (in 15 countries) and so much more. But, we have to repeat it – if the VPN is so slow that the streaming experience turns into a distant dream, it doesn’t really help to unblock websites. But, what is the status of SurfsharkVPN and its VPN speeds in 2020?

Here you can take a look at the video of the actual speed test to see how it was done and listen to our live commentary of the test.
If you just want to see the numbers and save some time, here are the results.
Surfshark VPN speed test 2020 in numbers
My initial download speed before connecting to any of the SurfsharkVPN servers was 283 Mbps.
There you have the results. To be honest, these speeds are more than enough for any streaming service online like Netflix and Disney+. And they are also ideal for torrenting. Even though some of the servers made me lose quite a lot of connection speed compared to my initial speed, you will never really be able to enjoy the highest speeds no matter what, simply because the websites and the torrent sites don’t provide so fast servers no matter what.
As a result, SurfsharkVPN should be more than enough for anyone who is interested in streaming content online securely with this as their selected VPN provider.
