How to prevent bandwidth throttling with a VPN

Check out our VPN deals of the week

Vlogging online can be a great way to showcase your hobbies or even supplement your income.  Once you decide on a topic and set up your own YouTube channel, you can start producing and posting your own content.  To avoid having your bandwidth throttled when uploading large videos, you should consider using a VPN to connect to the Internet to bypass any restrictions from your ISP.

Most VPN service providers offer services globally and thus charge in US Dollars rather than in local currencies, so we've listed pricing in Dollars for the sake of simplicity.  Bear in mind that when you click through to the actual deals, you may find the prices automatically displayed in pounds, or whatever your native currency may be.

These are the best deals we found for bypassing restrictions on our connection:
