 +We recommend you experiment with the different VPN options, you may see Location 1 and Location 2 these are different VPN locations, with different network connections,​ so you may find that one provides a better connection than the other. 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +To try another connection, first disconnect (Hang Up) any that are already connected, then follow Steps 4 - 11 again - you only need to follow this steps again the first time you connect a new VPN, they should be saved for future attempts.
