So as security student, I have been tasked with the challenge of trying to figure out a way of bypassing an ISPs data limit of 1GB . When the 1GB ceiling is hit the internet becomes really slow

I have tried to use a VPN but this method did not work.

Any ideas on how I can achieve this?

    Sending traffic via VPN is still sending traffic. Just because the ISP can't see encrypted packets doesn't mean they won't count. – SomeGuy Jun 1 '18 at 14:38
  • I have corrected the grammar, spelling & punctuation for you (currently awaiting peer review) however, you need to better explain what you're trying to do specifically . After researching I found a method that requires a free site which the ISP doesn't have. what do you mean by a site the ISP doesn't have? Please edit your question as it stands this is too broad & honestly difficult to answer based on your description of the task at hand. – J.J Jun 1 '18 at 14:57
  • I guess by free site OP means sites that the ISP allows connecting but does not charge for traffic, like the Free Wikipedia Project (something like that). – ThoriumBR Jun 1 '18 at 15:13
  • How about DNS tunneling? – Jeroen Jun 2 '18 at 16:18
  • You can embed VPN into port 53 udp traffic, and it is mostly open. However, your ISP may detect it as DNS DOS attack, and they won't thank it to you. – peterh says reinstate Monica Jun 2 '18 at 16:48

a usual way that comes to my mind is abuse "white listed" services. like ispyouron.com something.affiliate-of-yourisp.com as they usually do not count data to there own services, if you can find a proxy server or socks thats considered in those domains you would be set.
