Here’s a common scenario:

You’re enthralled in a TV series that you’ve waited months to see on Netflix. Your favorite character in on the screen and you know something good is about to happen. When suddenly the show stops and you see this familiar word on the screen –

buffering…

buffering…

buffering…

 

Annoying?

Indeed.

 

Frustrating?

Absolutely.

 

The bad news is according to recent reports by Ars Technica, your ISP could be throttling Netflix and Amazon.  Although there is currently no hard evidence that Verizon and Comcast are in fact throttling, it may now be legal in the U.S. thanks to Verizon convincing a court to mostly shut down net neutrality rules.

However it is evident (because buffering happens) that somewhere between Netflix servers and your connection, congestion is happening.

The good news is – IPVanish can help. Some people have already seen improvement to their streaming services by using a VPN.
