More and more it’s becoming clear that Internet Service Providers are deliberately slowing down streaming services, Netflix not in the least. The latest proof in this is a blog article by Level 3, a company that helps Netflix deliver the content with customers of the streaming service. The article goes in-depth on how Verizon is slowing down Netflix and is blaming Netflix for it. It would take just a little effort for ISP’s to be more streaming-friendly, but their interests keep them from allowing you to stream Netflix at full capacity at 3 MBps. Comcast for instance would rather have you watch its NBC network than content through Netflix. And why should they offer you proper Internet? It’s not like you’re going to run off to a better, more customer- and Netflix-friendly ISP.

VPN’s Unleashing True Netflix Streaming Capacity
You could just keep watching Netflix at your ISP’s slowed pace, or take full advantage of the maximum streaming speed Netflix is allowing and the bandwidth you’re paying a lot of money for with your ISP. Streaming Netflix content through a VPN service helps you bypass any speed or access burdens put in place by your ISP. Connecting to a website or online service through a VPN slightly normally slows down your connection, but in this case this effect is negligible compared to the huge speed bump you enjoy by accessing it through a different IP with the VPN service. VyprVPN and IPVanish are two of the top rated VPN providers that have proven to remove any speed restrictions from Netflix, with VyprVPN having a free 3-day trial allowing you to test it for yourself on your connection.
