Default Very slow speeds with VPN

I have a NordVPN sub and have been happily using it when I need to and speeds have been pretty good.

However, I have changed the provider to Virgin UK and run the hub in modem mode, so I can use my own router.

Without vpn, I am getting speeds of up to 650 mb down and close to 40 mb up.

I did some speed tests with and without the vpn on and found that my speeds plummeted. I know that a vpn will slow things a bit but up to 650 mb down has dropped to around 36 mb down and around 5 mb up.
Surely, something is wrong?
Anyone have any advice to give me?

I am going to try and use different script files in my router to see if that can improve things. I will also try to find a server nearer my location. The one I am currently using just says UK, it doesn't specify an area.

not much better with IP Vanish VPN
Without VPN I CAN GET MORE THAN 900MB/s
With VPN and nearest location [ UK ] only 69MB/s
so not a lot better with IP Vanish but good enough to watch Pluto TV as its Still Geo Blocked for me but now available to watch totally Free with VPN pointed to UK : )

I have now tested other servers, and it's pretty much the same.

Pity, as I was hoping to have the VPN running 24/7, but I won't bother now and only activate it if I really need to.
