I'm unsure tbh Chris, main reason I went for this one was how many countries it had, my intension was to set geo blocked streaming content up to tv when we cancelled sky, but they gave us a offer 60% off no contract for 12 months so I took it,

Freeview Australia is ok very similar to uk freeview

Perhaps one of the moderators would be so kind to move the vpn chat to another section, to save us swamping the the broadband speed thread.

As @blademedia and @WHATAGOAL1 have raised some interesting points.

This may be an appropriate time to mention that VPN use is under discussion in the Mod/Admin sections of the forum. Whilst we can understand their use for streaming from non UK countries we find it hard to justify the use of one when connecting to this forum unless joining in forum activities from say Iran. Comments anyone?

VPN is very useful for someone going on holidays and wants to browse normal websites (not necessarily for streaming) that are geo restricted, unless they live in their home country.
Also I can't imagine any expats going on with their lives without using a VPN.

A VPN is important for security issues, not only connecting to geo blocked content, everyone should be considering using one if your online banking etc , it makes life so much harder for the hacker they wont bother and move on to someone who's not using one.

How to use a VPN for online security and privacy



This can be very useful especially if sorted by country. Perhaps a different thread?
Yes it would be useful, Star sports is another ive connected to

And yourself for example (without prejudice) you are concerned about being hacked on here?

No, but I wouldn't want to be limited just to one web page IE satellites,co,uk, I have lots of web browsers open at the same time as every other user does, you cant turn it off for one web page.

It's an interesting issue, this. Works both ways, though: Forums like this, for example, rely upon clear and unambiguous details being fairly easily verifiable in order to keep the place free from latent Spammers and other interlopers.

However, quite a few Members clearly use VPNs and we Staff have mooted the idea of not accepting them, certainly for Greens and above.

There's no intention - certainly not at the moment. It's just a topic of discussion.
