It’s fairly incredible when you think about it. I will sit here in a town called Stanstead on the United States/Canadian boundary and view Canadian TV online without a difficulty. If I cross the border line with my notebook computer and wander down the street and connect from a Starbucks down the road and I’m blocked.
This is because simple, by strolling a few hundred yards and joining from the US aspect of the boundary I’ve also altered my digital address. In the North I use a Canadian ISP and so have a Canadian IP address, in the South my digital nationality turns me into an American.
The difference might seem trivial but it really makes a huge difference to what I will do online. Your location will be looked up by most important sites as you link and command what you see on their website. By way of example when in canada, I get blocked trying to watch anything on Hulu or Pandora.com, these work totally with an US IP address.
Although it functions easily enough there is a less difficult method to switch your addresses without transferring location. It is possible to use a proxy or VPN server to hide your actual place and provide a fake one instead. The way this works is rather easy, instead of joining straight to a website you instead relay your petitions through a proxy server. All the advice is then forwarded by the proxy to your browser, the webside never sees your actual place merely the address of the proxy. This means that if you’ve a selection of proxies accessible in different countries, then you can switch between them whenever you want.
It’s especially useful for ex-pats or individuals who travel a lot for his or her work. You are able to efficiently change places with a click of a button. Picture you can connect from a wifi point in an Italian airport, click on a Canadian proxy server and do your home banking then see the ice hockey results. Afterward when you have completed, switch to an US one and catch up with The Simpsons on Hulu. Eventually, practice your French by seeing a few shows on the French media channel M6 Replay.
Here’s tips on how to free up your internet connection on your own computer. Watch the British Broadcasting Company from everywhere, access Pandora.com and Hulu with a click of the button. This video show’s you never get blocked again and how to get a vast proxy network.
