How to add Pro-Add-on service to your Astrill VPN account

Koben Chou -

ProAddon brings better security with 2-layer encryption. Supports Fast mode - allows speed on your router from 20 mbit/sec or more.

Standard OpenVPN solution is limited to about 8-10 mbit because of slow CPU in your router. Works even in countries with high censorship, like China.


With ProAddon, you will be able to secure your VPN connection more stable, and get the speed faster as well.
