PureVPN has servers in Los Angeles and San Francisco for unblocking local content on Hulu (like NFL live games), bypassing IP triggers on your City National Bank app while abroad, or logging into your Student account on the CSU portal.
The California servers also let you stay updated with the latest news and talk on CBS Mornings or catch the newest episode of ‘In the House’ rerun with Marlon and Carlton Banks on KCB FAVE TV.

How to Connect to PureVPN’s California Server?
With 128 to 256 IPs per CA server, you can access your California Bank and Trust account using public WiFi at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport in London or log into your UCLA student portal while enjoying a plate of curry rice at Coco Curry House in Hong Kong.
- Buy PureVPN’s subscription (get discount here).
- Download the PureVPN app on your device. I’ll use the Windows PC app for this guide, but the process is similar across supported devices.
- “Log In” to your account.
- Click the Globe icon and the drop-down menu after “United States.”
- Select San Francisco or Los Angeles from the menu. For this illustration, I’ll choose Los Angeles.
- Connect and enjoy hiding your activities from AT&T. I streamed KTLA 5’s live news update using the Los Angeles server.
What PureVPN California Server Is the Fastest?
PureVPN lets you choose between San Francisco and Los Angeles servers.
The San Francisco server is a standard IP server, while the Los Angeles server is available as dynamic, Quantum Resistance, and Port Forwarding specialty servers.
I tested both server locations to help you choose the best one for your needs.
First, I captured my base speed:
Next, I connected to PureVPN’s San Francisco server:
Finally, I connected to PureVPN’s Los Angeles server:
Although both results are fast and will support seamless HD streaming, the Los Angeles servers offer higher speed, support port forwarding, and deliver better protection against quantum computer attacks.
I further tested the various VPN protocols each location supports to help you make an informed decision.
For this test, my base upload speed was 22.86Mbps and a download speed of 3.32 Mbps. Here are my findings from over 4,000 miles away.
|San Francisco, CA
|Los Angeles, CA
According to my results, San Francisco’s IP over IKEv2 is the fastest, while its UDP protocol is the slowest. But even at its slowest (using the UDP protocol), I enjoyed a lag-free experience streaming Firecreek (1968) and The Night Riders (1939) on KTLA Grit TV.
