VPN is one of the fastest growing internet services and for good reason too. They can be used for so many things, including things you wouldn’t think of at first. I started using them back in 2007 when visiting friends in the Unied Arab Emirates and discovered that Skype was blocked by the local ISP (Etisalat). Back then i used an account with company called Rox Networks but have since moved on Banana VPN to unblock sites and access Skype while abroad. Bellow are the main uses i could think of:
Hide your real IP
Secure you internet connection
Get an IP address in another country
Prevent spying in your office/work/school
Bypass proxies and filters
Access blocked sites (like in Thailand, UAE, Egypt etc.).
Access BBC iPlayer & Channel 4
Bypass ISP speed limits on P2P networks
Play online games, use Spype, MSN and ICQ
Prevent online attacks
You will look cool to your friends
And girls will like you even more! 🙂
If you can think of any more just add them in a comment.
