    Features

      VPN Support


      SpeedtestOS comes out of the box with support for OpenVPN, IKEv2, Wireguard, PPTP, L2TP, IPsec, Xauth, and Hybrid protocols so you can use any VPN with it! If your VPN doesn't provide connection over any of those methods, you can also easily install their own client!




      Speedtest Methods


      Installation is very simple and easy, all you need is 5 minutes, a PC that meets the minimum system requirements (almost any will work!) and a USB drive, CD, or DVD 2gb or larger.

      To get started using SpeedtestOS, check the Installation instructions below! Ensure you backup all data from the USB device as this process will delete all data from it!



      Hardware Support


      SpeedtestOS will boot and function on almost ANY hardware made in the last 15 years, though for accurate speedtests at high speeds, we highly recommend checking the recommended system requirements below to ensure your PC meets them.
