What Is WTFast?
WTFast is also referred to as the GPN (Gamers Private Network).
WTFast utilizes maximized paths via the Internet from your house to the gaming server you’re connecting to, in order to lower latency as much as possible.
WTFast do claim that it does this with the help of ISPs, by using paths within the Internet which are unlikely to be congested with other regular Internet traffic, making use of the most direct paths from source (your house) to destination (game server).
WTFast installs a tiny icon in Windows system tray which you can make use of in launching the service though it still automatically connects you to its service after you connect it to an online game. If you manually launch WTFast, as other VPNs, it offers you the option to connect to the optimal server or allowing you choose a specific server.
If you are selecting your own server, you can either sort by ping or geography. WTFast has got more than 200 servers in 48 countries. Of the 5 VPN services we put to the test, it’s a below-average number of servers and average in a number of countries.
Unlike most VPNs which allow you to select either a city or country on it, WTFast will enable you to drill down further and choose a particular server to link to.
To make use of WTFast, you need to tell it the online game which you want to route via its servers. You can also pick a game from WTFast’s list or add your preferred game.
Since WTFast does not reroute normal Web traffic, the SpeedOf.Me test we used for measuring downloads and uploads to evaluate other VPNs isn’t applicable for the service. We tested the effect of WTFast on ping in online games such as Overwatch, Team Fortress 2 and League of Legends.
After we launched WTFast and selected League of Legends from the list of games, WTFast dramatically sprang into action and routed the traffic of the game via its servers.
