I'm on college campus internet and my internet download rate is limited to about 20KB/s somehow. This is with IE7 and FireFox. BUT! If I use Download Accelerator Plus to download things with, it somehow bypasses this "filter" and I can get speeds of up to 300KB/s.

My question is, since a faster speed IS possible for me, is there an internet browser that could somehow bypass the speed limit that I'm restricted to browsing, just like DAP did?

Any "way around it" would be considered "hacking" and against the forum rules. Unlikely that you will get a response.

The limit is usually imposed to ensure everyone gets their share, if you want more than your allocation of bandwidth, everyone else suffers.
