Coming to an internet near you... Streisand Effect: The Government Edition

Our ISPs are next American ISPs will probably start censoring the internet and start billing you based on the content you download. Websites that pay their peering fees will be toll-free but other websites will be charged by the gigabyte.
That will probably be next unless they get broken up like Ma' Bell in the '80s.
Time to separate the ISPs from the physical plant operators (in other words Comcast, Charter, Time Warner, etc operates the physical plant in your community while everything past the CMTS such as routing, peering, etc would be handled by a third party ISP of your choice). Similar to separating local and long distance.
I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner and I currently have DirecTV. They are much better than broadcast TV.
I have not and will not cut the cord.
Re: Google DNS is already blocked too.
said by shmerl:It's incredibly easy to set up an OpenVPN server. Just a quick search found this one:
But it doesn't stop using many other alternative DNS servers. VPNs work as well.
If you don't have a server, you can get one really cheap at Amazon Cloud Services.
(it's free for very low usage, but if you exceed those limits you pay for the CPU, disk, bandwidth, etc.)
There is a lot of documentation on help.ubuntu.com about using Amazon Cloud Service.
