How do I stop bandwidth throttling?
If you experience throttling because of a data cap, there are two main ways to escape slow speeds:
- Reduce data use
- Purchase more high-speed data
Unfortunately, there’s not much more you can do than that, but if you need tips on how to stay within your limit, check out our guide to internet data caps.
If your bandwidth is being throttled because of data prioritization, use a VPN. This trick works better with cable, fiber, or DSL. Normally we wouldn’t recommend using a VPN with a satellite internet connection because adding a VPN to your network can itself cause slower speeds or higher latency, which are two issues already inherent to satellite internet. But if you run into network throttling of this kind often, a VPN might be the only way around it.
