Use this in these situations where you really don't care who sees what you are doing. This is slower for watching TV because all your data is being encrypted, then going from your device to the VPN server, decrypted, then sent on.
DNS-over-VPN = you still use your regular internet connection, but the DNS servers are changed only.
This is for people who travel (eg hotels, airports), or who use getflix on 3G/4G networks, or who manage to stream a lot of TV on free wifi.
Next week, RCN is coming to the home to install a cable modem (only, with no phones or cable TV), and I’ll see if a Google Wi Fi three-pack can effectively cover the house, as I suspect it will.
That way, Internet access will be ready and waiting for us when we actually move over a month later.
Providing the VPN service as a free add-on makes for great pricing especially when I grabbed a year sub for $17 late last year.

For the short term, I’m going to try a mesh wireless networking setup.(And, no, RCN isn’t my first, second, or even my third choice for connectivity. It offers speeds of 330 Mbps down, which is great, but only 20 Mbps up, which will be challenging.) Beyond these things, I will be evaluating whether it makes sense to do any kind of smart home control implementation related to heat/AC (on different systems because Pennsylvania), though just consolidating the many incompatible thermostats in the house—literally five different types across the house—will itself be a major achievement.
