Why VPN Bandwidth Cheating Isn't True

One thing people need to understand about the faux truth about using a VPN to "cheat" your ISP into giving you a faster internet connection is the connection is limited to what the ISP gives to the VPN provider. It's a virtual tunnel, so you personally don't get to enjoy the benefits of the VPN's increased speeds. When you do a speed test while connected to a VPN connection, your speed test results are going from the VPN endpoint, and the speed test target. The speed from your computer to the VPN endpoint is still the same. So all these folks talking about how you can "cheat" your ISP by giving you a faster connection via VPN is all falsehood and a misunderstanding of how the infrastructure works under the hood.
