  • GPNs ("Gaming" VPNs) - anyone use these to try and resolve connection issues?

    Anyone ever tried one of these? Ran across this while searching for something else: https://www.wtfast.com/en/games/subspace-continuum/

    They attempt to optimize your connection by providing the cleanest route to a server. Think of it as a VPN that chooses a route based on performance. Might be useful for those experiencing strange network problems and are willing to throw money at the problem. Couldn't hurt to try for a month, anyhow.

    If you've had any experience with these kinds of services and had success I'd be interested to hear about it.

    Similar services:
    https://mudfish.net - apparently much cheaper, pay as you go
    https://pingzapper.com - also much cheaper ($4/mo)

    WTFast apparently has some negative reviews, but most of it seems due to price gouging. Generally all of these do work as advertised to improve unreliable connections.

        Different concept/intention, doesn't accomplish quite the same thing, though a fast, well-configured VPN could do roughly the same thing if you knew the exact source of network trouble and used a precise location to route around it. A gaming VPN focuses on performance, whereas a standard VPN focuses on anonymity, and in most cases will raise rather than reduce your ping. It'll have unpredictable effects on packetloss, adding to or reducing it depending on the path you choose.

        The method of these services is to analyze possible ways to reroute traffic around bad hops to improve your connection. The method of a VPN is (at least in this use case) to reroute traffic manually to a user-defined location.
