When we first started My Expat Network in 2009 the term VPN was very little known in the expat community.
Therefore our job of reaching out to people was made a little bit complicated…we had a great solution for watching UK TV abroad, but our fellow expats did not know how to find us.
How things have changed ! VPN providers for UK and US services have multiplied over the years, so British and US expats are now well aware that a VPN connection is essential if you want to keep in touch with home.
So ironically choosing your UK VPN service is now a bit complicated for you guys…Free ? Paid for ? Mobile ? Desktop ?
All we would say is that you should be very careful when considering a free VPN service. Unless you know who is providing the service and can contact them should you have any concerns, we would strongly advise that you steer clear of the free offers.
There are plenty of dodgy services out there that set out intercept your data to make money. Why else would you offer a high cost VPN service for free ??
Our £5 per month UK VPN entry package is surely not too much to pay for a safe secure, contactable service, with round the clock Support. We only accept Paypal payments, and you are able to cancel your subscription at any time via your Paypal account, so the risk is in fact much lower than trying to get something for nothing, and getting badly burned by a “free’ service.
