ssh -D 1080 username@ip_or_domain

This command will connect to your server/VPS using ssh and open a ssh tunnel on port 1080 of your computer. Setup your browser/OS to use localhost:1080 as socks5.

All the traffic will be sent over ssh tunnel hence your ISP will only see it as you’re accessing your server/VPS.

If you’re on Windows, you can grab Tunnelier (free). The setup is pretty straight forward.
