  1. When using a VPN, am I correct in thinking that any peering arrangements that my ISP uses will no longer apply as it will depend on the exit server that I am connected to?
  2. I have not seen much discussion here about the struggles going on between ISP-s (especially in the U.S.) and backbone providers. And the effect it is having on customers. Including (I think) AirVPN users. So I thought I would post a link to a recent blog post on the Level 3 web site: http://blog.level3.com/global-connectivity/observations-internet-middleman/ A note worthy bit: "That leaves the remaining six peers with congestion on almost all of the interconnect ports between us. Congestion that is permanent, has been in place for well over a year and where our peer refuses to augment capacity. They are deliberately harming the service they deliver to their paying customers. They are not allowing us to fulfill the requests their customers make for content. Five of those congested peers are in the United States and one is in Europe. There are none in any other part of the world. All six are large Broadband consumer networks with a dominant or exclusive market share in their local market. In countries or markets where consumers have multiple Broadband choices (like the UK) there are no congested peers." While Level 3 and other backbone providers (e.g. Cogent) are refusing to give in, some service providers (e.g. Netflix) have caved in and made private agreements with ISP-s to let their traffic through the blockade: http://www.forbes.com/sites/halsinger/2014/03/30/connections-between-communications-networks-should-the-fcc-breathe-life-into-internet-middlemen/ I know that people here are worried about the effect surveillance can have on the internet, but I think this should also very much be on people's minds. UPDATE: I changed the topic name to include "Net Neutrality", because it may not have been obvious that this falls into that general topic. See also this earlier post here by anonym: /topic/11519-united-states-fcc-now-accepting-public-comments-on-net-neutrality/ Hopefully my post will help people understand that Net Neutrality is not just about lofty ideals. It can have a very real effect on the quality of your internet experience, even if you are not an idealist.
