Are you saying that when you connect the VPN your download "speed" falls to 1 Mbps on the client device pc/phone? Or are you saying the speed at the Server locations the speed drops to 1 Mbps? Is this a speed issue?

Or are you saying that when the VPN is connected it is transferring excessive amounts of data? Meaning you worried about exceeding you cellular data limits?

I sometime have a similar issue on the softether client where my connection is going to eat 1MB/s consistently without any usage whatsoever on the client. Will fire up wireshark next time it does it
