I have an Ipad behind a personal VPN with a quick connection. A speed test reveals around 6mbits d/l, even with the VPN on. The problem is, I can never get a high quality picture from Slingplayer with the VPN on, and the bandwidth for Slingplayer always hovers around 450kb. The second I turn off the VPN and launch Slingplayer I get a full quality picture, with a rate over 1000kb/sec.
I've tried multiple VPN servers near my location, but always get the same result. The problem is, I can't turn the VPN off because I need my business email to be pushed in an encrypted fashion.
Any resolution to this problem"?
Bump. I even upgraded my internet connection to 18Mbit/1.5Mbit and the Ipad Slingplayer still won't receive above 500k when I'm behind a VPN. When I speed test, I'm getting around 12 Mbit/sec behind the vpn.
This is a bug, but nobody is answering. I can't turn my VPN off because then my emails would be coming in unencrypted.
