Due to privacy concerns, I have been using Tor browser exclusively since 2016.
I have safaricom fiber in the house but the damn thing is soooooo slow I can
go pika ugali and finish before one video buffers. Safaricom throttles internet to a point
you can't enjoy the net we pay dearly for ( Kenyan internet is atrociously priced, one of the world's highest)

Now wadau how do you mitigate against this.

Can someone please advise.

Yeah i understand that tor is slow due to the encryption and re-routing it does. But do you also know your ISP knows the kind of broeser you are using. In this case its my ISP Safaricom putting tor-originating IP addresses on a black list and throttling speeds to those connections.

i think it's because tor browser inafanya routing and rerouting and switching of traffic through several exit nodes most of which are operated by FBI that's why iko slow, not necessarily because of safaricom
