Bypass ISP throttling with a VPN for Jio.

Bypass throttling on Jio with a VPN

Jio is a very popular mobile network operator offering 4G internet and voice over LTE service across India. Like many internet service providers, it has been known to violate net neutrality by slowing down connection speeds if it detects a user is streaming or torrenting.

ExpressVPN encrypts your traffic, making it unreadable to Jio or any other network operator. That means no one can throttle your speeds based on your activity.

Unblock websites in India with a VPN

Some governments use firewalls to block certain sites and apps. Users trying to access banned websites in India may find their internet freedom restricted by these firewalls.

ExpressVPN hides your IP address to defeat internet censorship, allowing you to access blocked sites. ExpressVPN also keeps no activity logs and no connection logs, so your privacy stays protected.

Digital privacy in India

Restricting corporate intrusion

In 2016, Facebook offered to give Indians free access to a limited version of the internet that it would control, through a program called “Free Basics.” The initiative was widely protested and eventually rejected by the government. In November 2017, the Telecom Regulatory Authority declared the internet a basic human right, banning ISPs from tampering with web traffic based on its contents. The decision was broadly seen a victory for net neutrality.

Surveillance by the state

The future of internet freedom in India, however, is still in jeopardy. In December 2018, the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs gave 10 government agencies the power to intercept and monitor its citizens’ internet traffic, sparking outrage among those who fear the power will be used to foster a surveillance state in India. Using a VPN is the easiest way to resist attempts to control your internet. ExpressVPN hides your IP address and encrypts your traffic to keep your activity private and secure.

Note: ExpressVPN is based in the British Virgin Islands and subject to BVI law.

ExpressVPN supports internet freedom

ExpressVPN is a proud financial supporter of nonprofit organizations that fight for your freedom on the internet, like the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Internet Defense League, Fight for the Future, and Access Now.
