Though we have seen many innovative ways to access blocked websites, none of them are better than using a fast and reliable VPN service. Not that the Free VPN services aren’t reliable, but they normally don’t come with all those additional features which are provided by the paid VPN clients. One such reliable VPN service is SwitchVPN.


SwitchVPN provides Personal VPN Service with servers located in USA, UK , Netherlands & Germany. Recently they have also included a Canada based server. Using SwitchVPN, users can browse the web anonymously and securely. Also, as I mentioned in the beginning, with SwitchVPN, users can bypass internet censorship by accessing all those blocked websites or country specific websites like Hulu & Pandora from any part of the world.

With SwitchVPN, all the programs installed on your computer are automatically redirected to the VPN so that a highest level of security and anonymity is provided. You can even unblock VOIP based applications like Skype with VPN. They have servers located in USA and other countries with PPTP / OpenVPN so you can connect on multiple platforms like iPhone / PlayStation / PSP / VOIP Phones on single VPN account.

SwitchVPN also allows you to choose between shared IP’s and dedicated IP’s. The shared IP packages starts from $5.95/month and the dedicated one from $6.95/month. More details on the pricing and packages can be found here.

    I’m interested in that
    count me in.
    i’ll use it specially for accessing some blocked websites and for voip

  • Richard

    Sounds pretty good. I have tried quite a few paid VPN’s so far, but most have a limit on how many times you can switch servers a month.
    Is this unlimited?

    • Raju

      Yes, unlimited bandwidth (download/upload)

      • Richard

        Cool. Are the server switches unlimited as well? I know some VPN’s I have tested have speed hits (takes your connection from 24Mbp/s down to 3Mbp/s, when tested at and some have very little effect. Does this one take mush of a hit?
        Sorry for all the questions.

        • Raju

          I am not sure about any restrictions on server switches, need to check that with them. From my test with Canada VPN, the speed drop was minimal, but then my connection is just 2Mbps. The drop can be a bit more significant when it comes to faster connections. But then, there wasn’t any difference when it came to video streaming, which is a good sign.

          • Richard

            Ah, that’s good. That can be one of the main issues, especially when trying to watch Hulu from the UK without having buffering issues and the same with friends in USA/ Bali trying to access iPlayer. Sounds like a pretty good one. I have been using FBVPN and BTGuard for the past 4 months myself, but it’s always good to check others that are out there.

            Nice article and thanks for answering the questions.
