Cyprus received the most votes in our annual server poll

Posted on September 22nd, 2020 by in Articles & News.

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

 

We closed our third annual ProtonVPN 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, 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:

LocationVotes
Cyprus1,152
The Philippines1,135

Puerto Rico1,055

Pakistan360

There were also over 3,000 write-in votes. Out of these results, the Canary Islands were the most popular new location.

    I agree.. It seems majority of the providers with Philippines server only use virtual servers (out of SIngapore). The others I have tried with physical servers are all so slow. I was so happy I had found one with a physical server and good speeds but then after using them for a short 3 months, they announced they were pulling out of the country :-(. So am now hoping ProtonVPN will be my next pick.

    Hi Allan,
    Good question. We are working to provide more consistent access to people behind the Great Firewall, but for the time being the service is irregular. If you contact our Support team at https://protonvpn.com/support-form they can help you.

    Wow! I’m happy for the poll result. I hope Philippines will have a Proton VPN server in the near future. We really need a trusted VPN here on our country to secure our data.
