nothing  new ISP's has been controlling people internet speed for Dockery years now

at the end of the day, Open DNS will not if the isp want to control your internet speed to a website

A VPN will not stop an ISP from slowing your speed


what a VPN will help with is if your ISP block access to a site then with a VPN you can get access

it will also encrypt your data from your ISP note never use a free VPN


RE: Net Neutrality vs Open DNS - Britec - 11-27-2017

There is a lot of scaremongering going on in Youtube about VPN and why you need one.

Some key things to remember.

  1. Where is the company based? (You want a country that has no Data Retention Laws ie Japan etc)
  2. Data Retention Laws?
  3. No Logs Kept (not even for 30 days)
  4. Good Encryption is a must (Strong 256-bit AES encryption)
  5. DNS leak protection and kill switches
  6. Plenty of servers to choose from
  7. Fast Server Speeds


Countries that are good for VPN:


Argentina - No data retention law
Brazil - No data retention law
Bulgaria - Data retention law not applicable to VPN providers
Cyprus - Data retention law declared unconstitutional (?)
Czech Republic - No data retention law (declared unconstitutional)
Hong Kong - No data retention law (?)
Iceland - No data retention period specified (?); good privacy laws
Japan - No data retention law
Luxemburg - Data retention law not applicable to VPN providers
Netherlands - Data retention law not applicable to VPN providers
Panama - No data retention law
Romania - Data retention law declared unconstitutional
Serbia - Data retention law not applicable to VPN providers (?)
Sweden - Data retention law going into effect in May 2012, but (presumably) not applicable to VPNs
Taiwan - No data retention law (?) + seemingly good privacy laws
Ukraine - No data retention law

Not really, Compton; a VPN service could be used as a workaround to the intentional slowdowns in speed by the ISP

If Net Neutrality goes away, Your ISP can prevent you from using a VPN. They will also be able to charge extra fees for using various services like Netflix...

Here is a video that Barnacules did to explain it:

Exactly @LarryTheComputerGuy


RE: Net Neutrality vs Open DNS - Partha - 11-27-2017

It would depend on the new law essentially; if the ISP blocks access to the known VPN services, of course those VPN services won't work, but it would be difficult to pass a law like this

VPN services can be used for other security reasons and not just to circumvent blocked sites, and so implementing such a law could be asking for trouble           



RE: Net Neutrality vs Open DNS - Britec - 11-27-2017

ISP in the UK already use data management. Cable cutters using internet with VPN to stream Live TV will drive ISP to use data management on them users, maybe reducing the speed because they know they are connected to a VPN or another IP and trying to hide from them, China and Russia have banned VPN.

I can already see changes happening with internet usage in the UK and it will only get worst. 

I think the days of you can the whatever the F**K you like on the internet is coming to a end.

Also you can shout from the roof tops and cry as much as you like, but when has the government listened to us?

This is more clear than Jerry's video

RE: Net Neutrality vs Open DNS - Compton - 11-28-2017

That is hapen when governments want to control Internet and the isp.s want to pull people dry of all $! $$


RE: Net Neutrality vs Open DNS - PrimeDirective64 - 11-28-2017

this whole net neutrality crap has really got me in a tizzy. do you think for someone like me who is in a package deal with comcast is unaffected -if and when comcast decides to control my internet access? we have 2 years of special offer.
