CyberGhost offers No Spy servers for maximum security as well as P2P-optimized, streaming-optimized and gaming-optimized servers for best performance. Dedicated IP servers allow you to safely connect to IP-restricted networks such as your remote office.

CyberGhost supports all the major VPN protocols, including OpenVPN, IKEv2, WireGuard and (L2TP) / IPSec. Their VPN app is using 256-bit encryption to secure your data. The company states they are following a strict no-logs policy, which means they do not store your IP address, DNS queries, browsing history, VPN servers you are connecting to as well as the web content you access.
CyberGhost’s servers are very fast if use a local server to connect within your country of residence but their international servers provide good speeds for streaming, downloading, uploading and gaming. You can experience some lags if you are streaming videos from a server on another continent or playing a game online but the lag is almost unnoticeable most of the time. The decrease of the download/upload speed sometimes may drop by 30% to 60% on international servers.
CyberGhost offers unlimited bandwidth and claims that regular subscribers get a minimum speed of 6 Mbps, while the maximum speed could go to 1 Gb. It takes seconds to connect to one of their servers with an option to automatically select the fastest server in the area you are connecting to.
