There’s a lot of users that are using VPNs to connect into Netflix. Recently, Netflix started cracking down on their customers were using VPNs to access their services.

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of customers that were using VPNs for legitimate purposes, but because people outside of the United States are using a VPN service to access Netflix coming from countries where Netflix’s services are restricted, Netflix had to start blocking VPN Services altogether.

I saw in a blog post today by the FCC Chairman Tom wheeler that the FCC is planning on extending the Lifeline program to give low-income families access to broadband internet service. While some people don’t have access to broadband internet service at all, most don’t have broadband internet service because the price is too high.
