The Best Ways to Avoid Filters
Unbeatable The Onion Routing Network
Tor was originally designed, implemented, and deployed as a third-generation onion routing project of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory. It was originally developed with the U.S. Navy in mind, for the primary purpose of protecting government communications. Today, it is used every day for a wide variety of purposes by normal people, the military, journalists, law enforcement officers, activists, and many others.
Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. Tor provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy.
Individuals use Tor to keep websites from tracking them and their family members, or to connect to news sites, instant messaging services, or the like when these are blocked by their local Internet providers. Tor’s hidden services let users publish web sites and other services without needing to reveal the location of the site. Individuals also use Tor for socially sensitive communication: chat rooms and web forums for rape and abuse survivors, or people with illnesses.
Journalists use Tor to communicate more safely with whistleblowers and dissidents. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) use Tor to allow their workers to connect to their home website while they’re in a foreign country, without notifying everybody nearby that they’re working with that organization.

Using a Remote Server as a SOCKS5 Proxy
We’ve written a how-to on creating a SOCKS5 proxy here: https://survivetheclaireperryinter.net/2014/01/10/building-a-socks5-proxy-with-a-digital-ocean-server/
Effectively you’re creating an encrypted tunnel to a server elsewhere on the Internet and then browsing through that servers Internet connection rather than your own.
Virtual Private Networks
A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network, such as the Internet. It enables a computer to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if it were directly connected to the private network, while benefiting from the functionality, security and management policies of the private network. This is done by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of dedicated connections, encryption, or a combination of the two.
A VPN connection across the Internet is similar to a wide area network (WAN) link between the sites. From a user perspective, the extended network resources are accessed in the same way as resources available from the private network.
VPN technology is also used by ordinary Internet users to connect to proxy servers for the purpose of protecting one’s identity.
Filter Free ISPs
Some smaller ISPs aren’t introducing filtering as they know it’s the wrong thing to do.
In no particular order they are;
