When using my home internet which is Comcast and downloading anything from HBO (specifically S.E.A.L & Dexter New Blood) I get this notice. When I have looked it up everyone says to just use a VPN as a solution. Unfortunately I don't have the money to purchase a VPN with already paying for Comcast and the free version of Nord VPN is no where near fast enough to download any large files. My question I guess is.. is there another way to stop this from happening. I'm pretty sure its happening when the Torrent client (Bit-Torrent & Seeds the file and I have had trouble stopping that from happening obviously this being my like ten notice I am concerned about loosing my access to the internet speeds available through Comcast. Please any suggestions help the easiest way the better. Thanks in advance. ;)

Get a Paid VPN or forget P2P downloading esp. if Comcast is your ISP. There is no way around that. There are people out there who's job it is to turn you in.

I know that there is something like 3-strikes you will have 3 of those emails to get banned from isp. Remember that Comcast is just a internet provider and needs to make money while adjusting to rogue users.

If you need VPNS, Check signature or the following link...

I am not sure whether you have looked around for free a VPN, most are slow mainly because they are giving it for free. However, there is one I used quite a while ago and the speed wasn't too bad. It was called PRIVADO

Not sure whether you have looked for a free service, but have a look at Proton VPN, the speed is not so bad and it is almost (I do say almost) as good as a paid service. I have tried it a while ago, when I was using someone else's machine, and I was reasonably impressed, but don't look for a premium type service as it just isn't possible to get that on free services.

Privado drove me nuts, I get a complementary subscription from my Usenet provider. I use TorGuard, I have a hard time recommending them but I have an account that's unlimited at $14.99 every 6 months and the speeds are good, you may have to change servers now and then.
Their client is buggy but they do incorporate Wireguard. It's worth noting most of these vpn services use the same pool of servers which is good and bad.
The sad truth is you really shouldn't do anything questionable without using a vpn, it's just foolish not to go out there with your ID flapping in the wind.
