Video made me laugh. I liked the King dressed up as Ajit Pai at the end, back when Pai tried being "cool"

Anyone paranoid and getting a service?

Corey, are you running PIA on your router?

I've had a VPN for a while but my fear is that they'll be the first target for throttling.

What service do you use?

So many companies rely on VPNs they couldn't just throttle them across the board, but I'm sure they can thottle it on a service by service basis. I use Private Internet Access, no company is going to be using that, if the ISP has a way of knowing one VPN service from another I could see this happening.

Yeah, my concern is for subscription based VPNs, not so much the VPNs that companies set up for employee use. I use NordVPN right now.

Amazon and Netflix already block VPN with some effectiveness, so I'm sure ISPs could do utilize similar measures to identify them for throttling. There's some cat and mouse involved and the VPN throttling wouldn't be perfect (I can still connect with Amazon and Netflix sometimes with certain of my VPN's servers) but they could definitely make it a hassle.

Not quite yet. Still needs to pass in the house and needs Trump's signature.

From that article:
A former Colby roommate claims that the pair discussed computer security and frequently had discussions about the use of VPNs. He had even helped Colby set one up, he said. Last Friday, the San Jose Federal Court also heard that Colby told his roommate that he’d hacked a news website for pay.

So the guy is tech savvy enough to hack websites for pay, but needs his roommate to help him set up a VPN.
