Global Protect Choking Internet Access?

L0 Member

To begin with, I am not an IT person but simply an end user in a big company...

I work from home and my ISP subscription is 25Mbps download and 5Mbps upload. I am using Bell Wireless Home Internet in Canada - it is a cell phone connected service. My personal computers work very well with these speeds, however...

With Global Protect enabled on my work computer there are times when I cannot access the internet unless I disable GP. Sometimes when I try to save files to my company network servers it won't connect at all. This internet service subscription is the highest speed I can get from Bell. The only other option is to get StarLink but I don't expect the speed to be a lot different in my location. What options do I have? Is there a different version of GP or perhaps settings within GP that can make my work life less of a living hell?

I have tried to get my ISP to help and they say their service is working as it should. I tried our corp IT and they  don't seem to have the depth to figure out what options are available.
