What are geographic restrictions and how can I avoid them?

Certain websites and online services are accessible only from IPs associated with a given geographic area or location. With the VPN4ALL service, you can legally bypass these restrictions by connecting to a VPN4ALL server that’s located specific geographic area. For example, by connecting to our servers in the USA you can watch videos, listen to the radio or obtain services normally only available to American IPs.

Examples: netflix.com is only accessible from USA IPs and bbc.co.uk/iPlayer/is only accessible from UK IPs. With VPN4ALL, you get access to the internet via 1000+ of secure and anonymous IP Addresses in over 50 geographic locations all over the world - USA, UK, Europe, Asia and Offshore.

This mean that you can download and stream video and watch IP TV in over 25 countries worldwide, wherever you are, shop online in any currency and even get cheaper calling rates for "local" calls on pay-as-you-go VOIP.
