Is Bloxroute a tenable scaling solution?

Ethereum is being throttled into near uselessness due to its absurdly low transaction rate. Bloxroute is claiming orders of magnitude increases in transaction speed without modification to the underlying protocol, using a sort of decentralized CDN. Yet I see no excitement about this, which is evidence to me that their claims must be exaggerated, as Ethereum is desperately in need of a short-term scaling solution. So in the spirit of understanding, I am hoping to spur a discussion about Bloxroute here. Do you think it will work? If so why or why not?
