The local broadband provider Streamyx has imposed an in admitted practice of line throttling. As the result it affects the speed of BitTorrent download. To overcome the issue a procedure is to be found. Based on the fact that VPN is normally untouched by most ISP hence this technology is explored to be deployed on BitTorrent. Subsequently in this part of the article a further observation and analysis are done to supplement the previously rudimentary findings to gauge the effect of VPN circumventing the throttling. A final conclusion is thus deduced to find out whether this procedure is effective 24/7 or it is bounded by the constraint of the normal working hours of the week i.e. Monday to Friday or otherwise beyond it.
