So a vpn would be best? Any recommendations? Also it seems like I get much better speeds when I choose physically close server rather than the server speedtest.net recommends in Wichita Kansas.
I can't say it would be best, the question is: what do you seek low latency for?
If you just want the tests to look good then a VPN would be an unneeded expense.
If you are having issues with an online game, then it is *possible* that a vpn could help.
Try one that offers a money back that way if it doesn't help then you can cancel it and get your money back
Check out Witopia
, they are reasonably low priced and offer a 30 day money back.
But to restate, if you are just worried about test numbers, and are having no issues with a particular program, it would be a waste of money.
Speedtest.net is just picking the location that is the closest route to it... the way sprint/vm does internet is you connect to the tower, which then runs a private line to a server that pops it out on the internet (I almost always get popped out in Kansas on Virgin Mobile connections as well). Perhaps the speedtest servers connection is congested to that particular server.
