We have Problem with connections in our country.
in Single connection you will not get Speed over 3-4 mbps !!!
When I use cheap routers I will get 3-4 mbps with UDP VPN's .... so we need something that can help us with multi connection or something that can improve our speed. I hear about Offloading CPU , ... I don't know is that working or not

You might discover that the ISP caps VPN traffic too.
