it's always been banned - not sure how they can mess with it though as it uses VPN type connections...?

Are you with Du or Etisalat kitty? I had trouble last night at GF's place on Skype through laptop but was crystal clear using Skype iPhone app. Works fine at my apartment on Du on laptop and iPhone.

Du, apparently, are due to launch their own VoIP software (chargeable, of course) shortly - probably why they are now tinkering, if they are. Shut down the competition and then launch your own product

I use a trusty (paid) UK VPN which works well on PC, but configured it on MAC and does not work at all??? Therefore the I phone skype does not work, or at best very badly.
I am on DU

I've spoken to several people at work and they all seem to be having problems with it. How do you get a UK VPN?

Mate, either you're tying to promote this website or you won't take telling! If you post these VPNs publicly then it aids the people that block us from browsing in the first place to then block access to this website too! Do a search on google for VPN and see how many of the suggested websites you can actually visit without being blocked. Not many I would imagine......

I'm in Saudi. Can someone recommend by way of a PM a VPN for me so that I can watch BBC iplayer?

Is it a case of "you get what you pay for" with VPN services?

Thanks

I would imagine it's the same as Internet supply where every server can handle so many connections and the less connections allowed to the server, the faster the service on offer per user. Don't forget, you will lose a fair bit of your bandwidth because you will be connecting to the UK and then browsing so that data that you're requesting has to travel a fair distance!!
