    Default WireGuard is some Freaky Stuff

    I never used a Vpn that actually makes things faster when it's connected. I'm leaving my mobile phone connected 24/7 wifi or cell this thing is fast. I really see a difference in speed when I'm using cell service/ I guess because I'm going through Pihole and not using the cell service dns??? Never used a vpn that actually speeds things up. wg0

    Did you use an external provider Mullvad or something else? Would love some help on setting it up for myself as well as a tunnel.

    Right?? WG is indeed freaky-fast. I can enable/disable a tunnel during a webinar if I need to without bombing out my connection! It's pretty great..

    Yep, I have been using it at remote sites (not untangle) alongside openvpn. Less latency added and lower cpu usage makes it even easier for low power devices to keep it that way.

    OpenVPN is working to reduce the performance gap with a kernel module, considering the current situation such as competitors, and crazy increased demand on WFH, we really need it.

    OpenVPN improving because of pressure from Wireguard is a win for all of us.
