[Video] How To Bypass Verizon Throttling

I thought this was pretty neat. A simple VPN service can defeat a Verizon throttling on Netflix. I realize that 10Mbps should be enough to stream Netflix, but at the same time I haven’t used up a large amount of data this month to be throttled. I am on an unlimited plan from Verizon.

Confirmed: pfsense on Check Point UTM-1 570 (u-20)

Will It Run pfsense? Yes.
Was It Easy To Install? Yes. 

I purchased this unit for less than 100 dollars on ebay. This was a very quick and easy install. It booted from the flash drive without making any bios changes and performed a quick installation.
