How do I request to prioritise VPN traffic?

I would like to prioritise VPN traffic on my home broadband above all other traffic, which I believe is possible with Plusnet but I'm not sure how to configure this... can anyone advise? Thanks in advance.

This I believe is what you’re looking for. Smiley

It’s only really useful though if you’re saturating your connection by downloading a lot or similar on other devices while trying to use a VPN on a device. 

What sort of speeds do you get? Run a speed test Here on a device not using a VPN while your other devices are doing what they usually do.

From 31st October 2022, I no longer have a regular presence here as I’ve moved on to a new role.

@Packer  What broadband service do you have, the Pro add-on is only useful on a slow connection, on FTTC with speeds above 25Mbps or so it will do nothing for you and is a complete waste of money at £5 a month I believe.
