Did you know that, since 2013, almost 25% of global internet users have accessed the web through a VPN each month?

In other words, a quarter of all the people browsing the web around the world find that their ISPs simply don’t (or can’t) offer the best internet experience.

Instead, for one reason or another, users turn to virtual private networks in order to get the most out of what the internet is supposed to be in the first place – a world wide web promoting democracy, equality, and freedom of choice.

US proxies

The United States is a country of democracy, freedom and human rights. The first amendment guarantees freedom of speech and press. And indeed, you are entitled to your own opinion and can say pretty much anything you want.

CHINESE WEB PROXY

Chances are, you live in China – but why? Because we learned that one in every five people in the world is Chinese. Have you been trying to access U.S. websites or videos recently but to no avail?

Or maybe you live in the US and want to browse some information from a Chinese website but you constantly get blocked. And no matter how many times you try, it is always the same.

Both of these outcomes are the result of geoblocking and can be rather frustrating especially if you don’t know what the problem is and how to fix it.

But does it really? Is everything the way it seems to be? Well, of course not.
