The landscape of VPN use is ever changing and providers are regularly announcing new updates and changes to their service. In what I hope will become a regular feature I’ve been looking at the latest developments for November 2015 and checking out what some of the leading VPN providers are doing, changing and offering with their service.
IPVanish Network Expansion
IPVanish is one of the largest VPN providers in the world and they are constantly expanding and upgrading their infrastructure.
This month they’ve been busy upgrading their US network with no less than 10 new servers added in the locations of San Jose and Dallas. Not only did they expand their US offering but they also added a further 18 servers worldwide bringing the total deployed in October/November to 28 new servers.
If adding server power wasn’t enough they also increased their IP availability from a large 25,000 to a massive 40,000 nearly doubling the total capacity of IP addresses available. This alone is a reason to celebrate as it gives you as the user more choice and options to access a range of services and less likelihood of them being blocked a la BBC iPlayer.
While expanding their server selection in already covered areas IPVanish also added three brand new locations to their server offerings that includes :
- Prague, Czech Republic.
- Lisbon, Portugal.
- Liverpool, United Kingdom.
Some great additions to the no log VPN service from IPVanish bringing their total available country count to 60 with over 350 servers.

VyprVPN launches on AndroidTV
VPNs have become a great way to access content around the world but are often limited to desktop or tablet systems. This month VyprVPN announced their service is now compatible with Android TV opening up the service to devices not ordinarily available.
For standalone TVs running Android systems users can now download the VyprVPN Android app which has been made fully compatible and will not only let users encrypt their internet connection on their Android TV but also access content from around the world that would otherwise be geo-blocked.
Users of the VyprVPN service can either install the app directly from the Google Play store or a direct link is available on the VyprVPN website.
As well as the introduction of compatibility with Android TV VyprVPN also works with other standalone TV services including OpenELEC/Kodi and Apple TV meaning streaming content on your home entertainment system has never been easier.
