    My ISP offers 40GB package for 40$ per month (16mbps) & after reaching that limit, My speed is reducing to 5kbps. With that low speed, I'm allowed to download anything and they don't charge for it. Is there anyway to bypass this 5kbps limit? (I posted this now because until last month, after I reaching the limit, I only have to turn on and off my router for few times and speed is comming back. Now that trick is not working. :yell:

    Uh...get an unlimited package? seriously, you think its possible to get full speed when you're already past the limit? that's just dumb.

    i'm afraid there's no trick, if you reach the 40 GB, you cannot do anything, however until you reach it, you can try to optimize your traffic, use adblock where you can, so those annoying flash ads won't add towards the 40 GB or for instance in chrome there's a data compression option, at least on mobile, which can save you several MBs, maybe GBs

    if you reach the 40 GB, you're pretty much fucked for the rest of the billing cycle

    but why are you paying rape prices?
    i'm using 2 connections, both are ~20 Mbit/5 Mbit, one is a cable which has unlimited data plan, the other one is a 4G/LTE mobile broadband with 30 GB daytime + 100 GB at night traffic plan, if i reach that, they limit to 32/32 kbps, but even then they don't limit certain sites at all or emailing for instance
    both cost ~$18/month

    my point is: maybe you want to switch to another provider, if that's an option

    This is wired broadband. There is no unlimited in our country. If there is no trick, why until last month that router trick worked?

    because they were dumber and now they're a month smarter as you can see, i also remember doing something similar using a mobile broadband with limited data plan maybe 10 years ago, when this whole mobile internet thing was pretty new and only a few ppl used it at least where i live, i just disconnected/reconnected and the limit was gone, now that's worked for a few months, maybe a year, but they eventually caught up to it and it ceased to work from that point and that's exactly the stage - where you're also at atm - where you're pretty much fucked

    If you get a vps and set it to 8 bit colors, you can lower bandwidth usage on your home connection by using it for the bandwidth intensive stuff.

    Stop using the internet for personal use, and only start using it only for IM, until you save up to move to a place with better internet.

    I think OP just need to find the way to bypass his/her ISP. And, it is impossible. Switching router or kind of is just some fortune because of a little of bug from ISP but it is rarely happened.

    For the price of 100GB with $500/m, I don't think it's true.

    Even me, I live in a poor small country in SE Asia, internet price are not that bad.

    Your case sounds worse than Virgin media UK. They love to kill bandwidth, too, but at least they don't restrict DL limits.
    They advertise unlimited traffic, which is a similar lie to unlimited space on hosting, lol.
    Can you get a vps and use that as VPN/Socket proxy? That would be somewhat faster

    Logic? what logic man! these people are fu***s. I'm in a asian country. believe me. here are there complete packages, there is no match at all.
    Tiny - 1.5GB - 5$ - 512kbps
    Student - 3.5GB - 10$ 8mbps
    Home - 30GB Peak & 10GB off peak - 50$ 16mbps
    Web Professional - 100GB - 60$ 8mbps
    Heavy User - 400GB - 200$ 8mbps
    Web life user - 500GB 16mbps

    After reaching the limit, you can buy extra GB for 3$ per GB.
