Thanks for your reply. I just wasn't sure if the IPv6 thing is an issue or not. But apparently it is not
For the speed I checked several nodes and got the following results:
Could it be a config issue or is it possible that my ISP is doing some kind of braking down the speed? I do use cable and share my bandwidth with other people and some ISPs do this to maintain a stable bandwidth to all customers. But AFAIK Vodafone doesn't do that. They used to drop the speeds after 60GB/day but nowhere is anything said to cap VPN connections in general...

- DUSSELDORF - down: 18 Mbit/s, up: 20 Mbit/s
- FRANKFURT - down: 57 Mbit/s, up: 21 Mbit/s
- ENGLAND - down: 14 Mbit/s, up: 21 Mbit/s
- DENMARK - down: 31 Mbit/s, up: 21 Mbit/s
- FINLAND - down: 22 Mbit/s, up: 16 Mbit/s
- LATVIA - down: 18 Mbit/s, up: 16 Mbit/s
- PORTUGAL - down: 41 Mbit/s, up: 15 Mbit/s
- FRANCE - down: 30 Mbit/s, up: 17 Mbit/s
- ITALY - down: 41 Mbit/s, up: 20 Mbit/s
Is there a way to confirm e.g. that my ISP is doing this?
What's the spec of your Mac? Could it be that your hardware is too old for decent OpenVPN performance? What speeds do you get with no VPN active? Outside of that, I would think there's an issue between you and the exit node, and it's likely outside of your direct control.
An easy way to check would be to test drive (like 1 week) another (decent) VPN provider with exits in similar locations and see what you get. If your ISP is interfering with UDP/443 (or there's simply bad routing) you'll get similar results.
