Video: How to get an IP from South Africa using a VPN
Recommended VPN Services
IPVanish is a popular VPN service that offers unlimited access packages that give you unlimited bandwidth and unlimited server switching between all their servers in the network. As of Dec 2012 they have 7000+ IPs on 100+ servers in 44 countries.
You can access all of them for one price, plus their service comes with a 7 day money back guarantee. They are quickly growing into one of the largest VPN service providers in the world, and certainly already have one of the largest choice of country locations.
Now that IPVanish has servers in ZA, they are clearly a better choice based on price and features. You can visit their official website by clicking the link below.

HMA is a very popular service that just recently (Summer 2013) added VPN servers in South Africa. This is one of the most popular VPN services on Change IP Online because of the sheer number of servers (hudreds) and the 52’500+ IPs in 59 countries.
The VPN software (VPN client) from HMA is also very nice, and I use it to demonstrate the IP change in many of my videos. I currently don’t have a video for South Africa because it’s a newer addition to the service, but will have one up soon.

How can one get a South African IP address, and why would someone need it? The answer to both the questions is easy. The answer to the first question would be that, using a VPN one can get an IP address from any location.
A VPN is a Virtual Private Network that allows a user to change his IP address at the same time providing security by keeping the user’s original IP address anonymous. This also protects all the data sent and received from the user’s computer.
Phone and internet security is one reason, but most likely you will be searching for a South African VPN service for entertainment.
There are lots of local sport channels that are blocked outside the country. If you’re a rugby or soccer fan and your team is playing, there’s little to no chance that you’ll be able to see the game anywhere but ZA. Below are services that offer connections in South Africa, both for privacy and security, as well as for entertainment like streaming TV online.
