How to stop Dish 'redirects?'
Hi, using Dish satellite for internet. Get a certain amount of high speed each month. After that speed is reduced. Which is fine. But after that it keeps taking me to a Dish webpage - https://www.mydish.com/upgrades/products/internet-phone/data/
"NOTICE As a courtesy, we want to notify you that you have used 100% of your Monthly Anytime Usage Allowance for the current service period. Your download speeds will be significantly reduced for the remainder of the service period.

It would be fine if it did this once. Or even once a day. But it does it numerous times a day. Limitless really. Because sometimes when ever you click to go to a webpage, wether it be from a bookmark or link on the page you're on, it will take you to the Dish page. Rendering internet access in large part unusable. Because you could have a million redirects to the Dish page if you kept clicking. It happens at various times of the day and night. As well as lasts for various lengths of time, before temporarily going back to normal. Not sure why it does what when. Besides how Dish has it set and wont change it.
Dish offers no fix. Basically they do this on purpose to try to annoy you enough to purchase more high speed. Which I dont want.
So, question is, can/how can the Dish 'redirects' be stopped?

HI, since it is from your Service Provider it can not be stopped in Firefox but you maybe able to block it in your Firewall Software if it has that function/ability.
