Private Internet Access (PIA) is Using a Separate VPN to Avoid Bit Torrent BanSpeaking of many data centers, they are putting restrictions on BitTorrent-heavy services on their networks. VPN service named Private Internet Access (PIA) has tried to address this problem by introducing a separate VPN exclusively for this purpose. Of course, it is going to have an effect on the connection speeds. Well, it is definitely better than facing a complete ban. So, this move makes a lot of sense.

As we all know, there are millions of users downloading torrent files these days. In some countries, laws are so strict that they have to use VPN services to hide their BitTorrent download activities. It is no secret that torrent users share copyrighted material. This has started creating lots of problems for many VPN providers. Data centers around the world are banning services that have heavy BitTorrent traffic. As we all know, this has led to many copyright infringement notices and things have become lot difficult to handle issues like this. As a result, many VPN services have turned their back on BitTorrent traffic as they now allow only P2P traffic on certain servers. But when PIA faced this problem, they took a different route to find a solution. Instead of banning the torrent traffic, they are routing the BitTorrent traffic via regions which are friendly.
