You should check the Speedtest with a vpn in Wireguard... That's what made me uninstall it
I use Bitdefender VPN with Hydra Catapult. Blazing fast.
Its the only VPN that allowes me to stream live television from the Netherlands to Malaysia without any buffering @ the highest bitrate.
So for me a no brainer to use this BD Vpn. I also have PIA ( buffering like hell, can not watch any streams from Holland )

It seems to me that Hydra is not Wireguard :/
If a user can compare his speed without vpn and with using Wireguard, I'm a taker

The speed difference here is mainly because, this is Malaysia, the worst Internet ever haha
But for me, with Wireguard the speed is almost the same.
