If you are an UK resident or visiting the UK, there are good reasons to use a VPN provider to encrypt all your internet traffic. The major internet service providers (British Telecom, Virgin, Sky and TalkTalk) all have a generic filtering system in place that block various websites by court order. These include the major file sharing and torrent sites like The Pirate Bay,, EZTV, et cetera.

Additionally, ISPs block access to sites which are on the block lists provided by the Internet Watch Foundation. While this list is primarily aimed at blocking illegal content, it affected unrelated sites like Wikipedia, Imgur or WordPress on various occasions in the past.[1]

There are several ways to circumvent these blocks like using a proxy server or, in some cases, just using a different (non-UK) name server. The most hassle free option is to use a VPN connection, so that the ISP doesn't even know to what sites you are connecting to. It does not matter what server you are using, any of the Perfect Privacy servers will allow you to access censorship free internet from the UK.

If you are not in the UK but want to access certain British media content like SkyTV you will need to find a way to obtain a British IP address. The Perfect Privacy servers in England is ideal for this as it will allow you to access all sites which are normally restricted to UK residents.
