So I have pretty terrible satellite internet. During peak hours I get single digit KB/s speeds. But then to my surprise I found that by downloading a file off of mega.nz I get the absolute full throughput of my bandwidth of 128 KB/s at all times.
I found some documentation of what protocol mega uses and the encryption that they use https://mega.nz/#doc (navigate to the Under the Hood section)
Here is some more information on what mega.nz uses https://www.quora.com/How-do-Mega-downloads-work
My question is, is it possible to use a VPN to get all of my traffic the same type as whatever mega.nz uses? Bandwidth is unlimited at no extra charge so it would be nice to get the advertised speed for my connection. There are many kinds of protocol and many kinds of encryption for VPN services so I'm hoping for a reply from a person very knowledgeable with the ins and outs of VPNs. It might not even be a VPN issue, it could be something very abnormal with how Mega downloads. As you can see by the above quara link, mega doesn't work on any browser but chrome due to all of the features it requires.
