Japanese University Offers Free Access to Dozens of VPNs

From the Great Firewall of China to the UK ban on the Pirate Bay, nearly every country now faces some form of internet censorship. Apparently no one need worry about it anymore: The Graduate School of University of Tsukuba, Japan, has just launched a free VPN (Virtual Private Network) service which will allow users to choose where they want to appear to be from.

Via Torrentfreak:
"Volunteers have given the University access to dozens of VPN servers located all over the world which people can access from pretty much any device running Windows, Linux, iOS, Android and more. No sign up or user registration is needed. Once connected the user’s IP address is hidden and switched for one issued by the VPN of their choice selected from dozens around the world....

Want to unblock The Pirate Bay, KAT.PH or H33T in the UK? Easy, just select any server that isn’t in the UK and preferably outside Europe. Want to access YouTube in China? Simple, just access any non-domestic VPN server. US citizen who needs to use Hulu overseas? Fine, just pick a United States server. UK citzen who needs to access the BBC iPlayer abroad? A UK server will provide the solution.

Once a server is selected and connected to the client, simply use your regular browser and other Internet applications as usual and traffic will be diverted through the VPN."
