Summer is over and students are gearing up to head back to school and a number of retailers are offering some great deals on back to school tech. Though it’s easy to access the Internet all over campus, some of your favorite sites and services may be blocked by your university. By using a VPN to connect to the Internet, you can bypass these network blocks and surf the web freely with privacy and improved security.
Most VPN service providers offer services globally and thus charge in US Dollars rather than in local currencies, so we've listed pricing in Dollars for the sake of simplicity. Bear in mind that when you click through to the actual deals, you may find the prices automatically displayed in pounds, or whatever your native currency may be.
These are some of the best deals we found for bypassing network restrictions and blocks:
