Is skype blocked by your ISP in a particular country? This is one of the most annoying situations faced by people who travel for work or leisure. Certain countries have VOIP services blocked so that they can cash in on their telecom services. When people have no other option, they have to use their telephones to call back home paying enormously huge amounts to the service provider.
This is one bizzare situation when the world around is fighting for net neutrality. The simple step to overcome such restrictions is to use a VPN service. Once you are connected to a VPN service you are free of all the restrictions of your ISP and you can access all blocked contents. This include making cheap VOIP calls using your favourite services like Skype, Viber, Whatsapp etc. For advanced users it is convenient to set up their preferred VPN service on the smart phones or laptops. But for people who doesn't know or would not like to deal with the complications, here's a simple way to get through.
Just download and install one of the VPN providers app and you are good to go. Two of my preferred VPN providers are Betternet and Tunnelbear. Using them on smart phones is just as easy as a simple touch. Betternet is an unlimited free service while Tunnel bear gives only 500 mb free monthly while it has an option for an unlimited paid plan.
Smart phone users may get the app using below links:
