bypass ISP throttling without VPN


i have broadband in Thailand. For those with experience overseas, that should be enough to establish the premise for this post. For those with not, please allow me to continue.. My provider assures its customers with something like .38 meg, but it's more like .04 and that's without VPN! With a VPN, .06, so, you can see i'm in a pinch. No other provider; remote village; SOL. An acquaintence at StrongVPN, my VPN, told me there are at least five ways to bypass ISP throttling, but i lost the transcript of the conversation. i'm reestablishing my Sourceforge presence so will likely post/project there also. i realize it's all about port/encryption utilization, but my learning curve for those areas appears to be slow.. Any positive comments or reactions will be appreciated

sourceforge project website: http://bypass-isp-throttling.sourceforge.net

In this Universe it's unlikely a VPN will give you more bandwidth. There isn't a DoubleSpace-or-QEMM-for-Intarwebs.

Such circumvention unfortunately is not a valid topic on LQ.

Why the fsck did you create a project for something that's just a crossposted question? Do you know what SourceForge actually is for?

Hi,

I'm not sure if this is really a programming question.

But here is my take. If an ISP assures/guarantees a basic speed of 380 kbps and delivers only 40 kbps, due to throttling or shitty equipment, you might call their service-desk about it.

You might read their contract again including the small print.

You also don't say if the ISP is also the carrier.

Cheers,

You won't have the capacity to surpass the promoted speed. In any case, this is not the issue. The issue is that ISPs may throttle some type of network traffic while allowing others to pass. However, this can be overcome by using only VPN service. A VPN will encrypt your network traffic while making ISPs unable to throttle or identify any of your online activities and except vpn i don't think so that it is possible to throttling.

Here are some References.

Ordinarily, ISPs simply respond to this by throttling VPN traffic. But they can do this only when they have a service monopoly in a particular area.

It's that much-related question but recently I been through this and have really detailed information about this. If you have checked that you been tracking from ISP and as you said by taking tests you can evaluate that there is something going one. you might check your VPN protocols as well, try shuffling with PPTP and L2TP as well see here https://www.beencrypted.com/bypass-isp-throttling/ they shown what I'm talking about.

Also, there are other factors involved as well, you need to check your firewall as well. by checking server location you can also optimize the privacy and speed.
