Finland is another Scandinavian country with a great standard of living, social and economic situation. It is the land of Santa Claus and saunas, snow and ice.
But there are more reasons to respect this country. In 2010, Finland became the very first country in the world to make Internet access a legal right. The largest Internet service providers in Finland are Sonera, Elisa and DNA, which provide the residents of this country with a great Internet connection.
On the other hand, Internet censorship has been a matter of debate in Finland, with some ISPs using a voluntary censorship list provided by the police. Even though it is mostly websites with illegal content that have been blocked, the thing that raised debate was the fact that this list is secret, so nobody can actually say what the exact criteria for censorship are.
Naturally, this resulted in the public opinion that the list could be used for any censorship. And because of that, Finnish people don’t believe that they are given the opportunity to access all information they need.
Internet censorship is a huge issue in many countries around the world. But luckily, there are simple ways to overcome it.
The best way to do it is to use a proxy server.
‘Suomi’ is a Finnish word for ‘Finland’. Its origins are uncertain, but the source is probably the Proto-Baltic word ‘*źemē’, which means ‘land’.
A proxy server is a server that acts as an intermediary between your Finland IP address and the Internet. In other words, when you connect to a proxy server, it takes over all requests and acts as your own IP, sending your requests to your target website.
Proxy servers are like a bridge that helps you cross a river. Just like you are not able to jump over the river, you are not able to access a certain website. The reason for this is that your target website server or your ISP server recognizes your IP address and blocks you based on your location.
And this is when the proxy server enters the stage. It masks your real IP and acts as the bridge to your target website. Consequently, your target website thinks that the proxy IP is your real IP and it allows you access.
If you want to access a U.S. website, you connect to a proxy located in the US. In case you need to view content on a Chinese website, the only thing you need to do is get a proxy in China. That is the simplest way to access all websites that you can’t access when you browse with Finnish IP.
So, to sum up, ‘Suomi proxy’ means ‘Finnish proxy’.
How to Choose a Proxy
Nowadays, there are more and more people who use proxies. As a result, the number of proxy providers is steadily increasing and there is no quality control that could check what kind of proxies there are on the market.
For example, Glype Proxy is a web-based proxy script written in PHP. It is widely used in Finland by people who want to bypass censorship and remain anonymous while surfing the Internet
However, there have been some complaints about this proxy, particularly about the fact that it requires some special PHP skills to run. All in all, it is rather complicated to use, which can take a lot of time and effort.
In addition, there are numerous web proxy providers that appeared on the market and disappeared not long after.
One of them is PdtS Web Proxy, which used to be a well-known proxy provider. However, it is not available anymore, probably because it offered low-quality proxies.
There are a number of such proxy providers that simply cannot keep up with their customers’ needs and requirements.
We recommend you to be careful when choosing your proxy provider because this is a decision that can make or break your proxy browsing experience.
Instead of wanting to save money, getting a cheap and bad proxy and paying with your nerves later, we advise you to invest more money initially and enjoy using a top-quality proxy server instead.
