Why would you want an IP address when you already have one of your own? The question is reasonable enough; however, to many people the answer is simple.
IP addresses, at least real ones, are no good if you want privacy. IP tracking is easy and is much too common. Many different sites make use of this technique for a variety of purposes.
Advertises track your browsing history, and soon many of the banner ads on a particular page reflect what you have been visiting. Buy pizza from Pizza Hut once, you see Pizza Hut ads everywhere you go for the next couple of months.
It isn’t discreet either, you may see a Pizza Hut ad on a new site for a country that doesn’t even have Pizza Hut.
Using a VPN is a good way around this problem. You can use a VPN to get an IP address from the French Southern Territories, or anywhere in the world. Why would you want to do this? Well, not only does this give you privacy (no one can link your history to your computer anymore), but it also gives you access to local content.
For example, if you get an IP address from the French Southern Territories, then you can access many sites offering streaming local television content that would not otherwise be available.
Recommended VPN Service
IAPS Security Store
IAPS is very broad-reading service, and as of the writing of this article I can guarantee that you won’t find any other service that offers VPN servers in the French Southern Territories.
It’s just not a popular VPN location. That’s not to say that there isn’t a demand for it. Look in The PPTP/L2TP section of IAPS for VPN plans for this area of the world.
