Consumer VPNs

I came across this infographic the other day and thought it would be worth a mention. VPNs can affect the enforced information architecture of a website, because they can mask the actual location of a user, making them appear to be accessing the site from a different country. This can be used to access content that is only available in certain countries, such as most of the decent video files available through the BBC iPlayer.

    Agreed. Pity that Australian ISPs don’t provide any bundled consumer VPN services – I’m sure they’d be quite popular.
    But then again, given the state of Australia’s censorship laws, I’m not sure that would go down too well with the folks in Canberra…
