The fastest VPN for outright speed 2020

Among all the considerations you need to think about when selecting your new VPN, one of the most significant is speed.

Because virtual private networks work by sending all your internet traffic through an extra set of encrypted tunnels via the provider’s secure server, that’s a lot of extra potential latency. Thankfully, by going for one of the fastest VPNs, you can pretty much avoid any slow down completely.

Depending on the robustness of the company’s network, and the number of servers it offers (with closer servers generally providing better speeds) – some VPNs barely impact your connection. And we’ve tested all the top VPNs out there on their speed to make sure that you can confidently pick out a provider that won’t slow you down – especially if you’re using your VPN to unblock sites or services and perhaps stream video where speeds are obviously are a priority.

The Latest: South Korea stays in downward infection trend | National News

The National Institutes of Health will coordinate a study in hospitalized patients comparing low and regular doses of the blood thinner heparin. The study will involve more than 100 sites around the world participating in a research effort with various governments, drug companies, universities and others to speed coronavirus therapies.

A second study in COVID-19 patients not sick enough to need hospitalization will test various strategies against placebo pills: baby aspirin or low or regular doses of the anti-clotting drug apixaban, sold as Eliquis in the United States. The goal there is preventing blood clots or hospitalization.

A third study starting later will test blood thinners for people who have recovered and no longer test positive for the coronavirus. Evidence is building that they may remain at higher risk for blood clots.

UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. envoy for children in conflict says attacking schools and teachers seems to be

Riverside School District works to add web connections

Officials in the largely rural Riverside School District north of Spokane are exploring a wide variety of options to get high speed internet access for their students, including recruiting parent volunteers to staff community sites where students could go to complete their online schoolwork.

“It’s just one strategy of many,” said Riverside Superintendent Ken Russell. “It’s not final. We’re still working on it.”

Several churches and other locations, including the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Elk, have called the school district to offer their buildings and internet access to small groups of students. Russell said the district is still figuring out if such sites will be necessary.

“We’re using our school district first,” he said. “You can’t just have a walk-in environment. It has to be scheduled.”

Parents interested in volunteering to be an internet site supervisor can send an email to A background check is required.
