    It would seem Verizon thinks speedof.me is a video streaming service, because when I do a speed test on Ookla's servers, I'm getting average download speeds in the 60-70 mbps range where I'm working this week. But if I run the test at speedof.me, I only get 10 mbps or less.

    So, it's DEFINITELY time to get a VPN and put all of my VZW devices on it!

    Don't worry, they'll just start counting it as hotspot usage like Sprint does.

    I would never trust speedof.me speed tests. Even at home on my laptop using Comcast internet, their speed tests results never come close to matching others like speedtest.net.

    Well, that's bogus. There's literally NOTHING in it for them, and doing that might actually COST THEM subscribers.

    They have been doing it for a while.
    https://torrentfreak.com/netflix-ann...irates-160114/

    Apparently paying for something and then taking it out of the country is "piracy" yet If I actually bought a DVD in the UK and took it with me back to the US while I would need a region free DVD player to play it I don't think anyone would call me a pirate for it.

    How far can we expand the definition before just everyone becomes a pirate. Say you could even expand it to other things like "i'm going to go to McDonalds and pirate a big mac for $3.99"

    Strange that they aren't even happy when people are actually paying for content.

    I think it has to do with their deals with the content owners. Studios sometimes don’t allow movies or shows to be viewed in certain countries, so in order for Netflix to be able to play stuff they have to agree to terms. That was my understanding anyway. There is probably a bit more to it though.

    What’s stopping me from sharing my Mac book screen to my iPhone with one of the many apps out there and play Netflixs on my Mac book at home which I will then see on my iPhone?

    What if you have a gUDP sim in a T1114 or mifi device, is that throttled too?

    Netflix is also blocking the IP address ranges of various cloud providers. So you can’t get around this by spinning up your own VPN on a cloud provider instance.

    Yes I think they know it's harmful but the content owners demand they do something.
    imho it should be well within netflix's ability to limit accounts to their payment religion so you would still see content from home when traveling instead of the local content that would pretty much eliminate their problems with VPN too.

    @fgpalm
    Nothing afaik.

    @Archegos
    I think so but i'm not seeing it in oklahoma on mine in a aircard yet.

    @mch
    Some work some don't.

    @WiredGuy
    Works fine.
