I downloaded Tor some time now, just to try it, it turned out that resolved a problem that was not exactly the anonymity, but speed. I'm from Venezuela, and ISPs here are affected by the economic problems of the country, so they can not improve their platforms, so the internet service is lousy, reaching sometimes be null.
In a research I did through the internet, I found out that several people were testing their internet connections through pages of speed test and came to the conclusion that the service providers were limiting the internet connection to those who use torrent and download programs like jdownloader, and those who just surf the internet, had his speed to maximum.
I download Tor to avoid government restrictions about a website, and discovered that my internet speed had increased from 10% of what I pay to 100% and was constant, without loss, then I continue using Tor, I recommended it to my girlfriend, and download it at work, and worked perfectly.
What I think was happening was that Tor prevented my IP from being tracked by my ISP and managed to limit my download speed.
But the trick no longer works, both in my work and in my girlfriend's house and in my house, so I guess that they detected the trick, I guess they tracked all these IPs, and also restricted.
Well sorry for the long story so much, and for my bad English, but could be a way to make it work again?
