Yes, that’s for you. If you are not living in US or UK, you automatically gets denied from many of the popular online services like Pandora, Spotify, Hulu and Netflix in US, iPlayer in UK etc. Well no more ! Although there are many VPN services out there you can use some are free some are paid that allows you to change your IP to be based in either US or UK, TunnelBear is by far the best service out there. It has a freemium system, you sign up an account get 500Mb data transfer for free per month. If you’d like their service and would like to use more there are plans you can pay to get unlimited tunnel, starting at $5/month.
I love TunnelBear not only because of the easy of use, but it also supports multiple platforms, including Mac, iOS and Android devices. Essentially you use one account to grant access to those services on any device you might have. It also provide secure encrypted VPN connection. (128bit encryption for free user, and 265bit for paid user)
Here is How to Get Started
Go download the client if you haven’t.
Sign up an account.
You get 500 Mb per month free automatically.
Install the device driver when prompt.
From now on, you get options to turn it on or off and picking locations to either UK or US. As you can see, there isn’t much cap in the download speed, some of the services I’ve tried with TunnelBear I can easily get over 1 Mb/s transfer rate.
Additionally, it claim you can double your free usage up to a 1GB if you spread the word on twitter, I personally haven’t got any additional usage but you are welcome to give it a try !
That’s it, next time you can enjoy those services wherever you are (except in China)
