An illustration of the results of the 2020 ProtonVPN server poll.

Cyprus received the most votes in our annual server poll

We closed our third annual Proton VPN server poll on Friday, September 11, and we want to thank everyone who participated. This was our biggest poll yet, with more than 13,000 votes cast. After the votes were counted, four locations were substantially more popular than all other options. 

According to the poll, adding servers to Cyprus(new window), the Philippines, Thailand, and Puerto Rico should be our top priority. Each of those locations received over 1,000 votes, while Nepal, which came in fifth, was just short of 600 votes. 

We have already begun acting on this data, and we hope to bring new servers online in these locations in the next few months. As always, our foremost priority is our users’ security. We will not add any new VPN servers if we are not confident we can protect our users’ data. 

We will always try to bring new VPN servers online in the order of priority. However, it is more difficult to find servers in some areas, particularly those that do not have strong IT infrastructure. We will announce new servers on our blog and on social media as they become available.

Below are the results from the poll:
