Please note this list is not inclusive and is not guaranteed to be 100% accurate, but we've done our best to compile information about the services and websites blocked in specific countries.
Some blocks are not made by the country itself, but may be a result of a block by the ISP itself. For example many ISPs in North America actively block VOIP and Skype as a way to prevent competition.
If a site such as BBC or service like Skype is blocked from the country you're in, you will know it since the service will be inaccessible of course.
Our VPN account service is able to bypass all of these restrictions and also makes it impossible for the country and ISP to see any of your communications as they would all be encrypted directly to our secure VPN server.
Another growing trend is that many video and voice based services including MSN/Yahoo talk are being blocked in addition to Skype.
