Re: VPN throttling on Firestick

Its likely nothing to do with your VPN provider. Firesticks have very low powered processors not designed to support typical VPN encryption. Try finding a PPTP or LTTP method to connect to your vpn instead, here are instructions: https://support.cyberghostvpn.com/hc/en-us/articles/213703989-Android...
