Blockless VPN hails from the pleasant land of Canada. Blockless technically isn’t a VPN, but rather uses a SmartDNS, which essentially does the same thing, but does it much faster. Since streaming video requires a fast connection, if you’re looking for video content from around the world, perhaps you should be looking at a SmartDNS service, say Blockless for example?
What are the pricing and plans?
The plans are simple and the pricing is straightforward and is paid in lump sums depending on how long you want to access the service for.
Note: All VPN prices are in US dollars.
|SmartDNS Monthly||SmartDNS Semi-Annual||SmartDNS Yearly|
|$9.95 per month||$53.70 for six months||$89.95 per year|

What are the benefits of using Blockless?
Blockless is geared towards streaming videos and claims that its SmartDNS service is faster than other VPN services. They’re also trialing a product called SmartGuard at present, which is an internet security and privacy defence system, so if internet security is big on your list, and you’re after content from around the world, then Blockless might just tick both of your boxes.
How do I setup Blockless?
Blockless is a convenient, no download service, which means that you don’t have to download anything to your computer or device to use their service. You simply activate it through your browser and you’re free to surf anonymously.
What operating systems can you use Blockless on?
The Blockless website doesn’t state exactly which systems it is available for, yet it is safe to assume that they are compatible with all of the major operating systems. If you want to use Blockless on a less popular service, it might be worth contacting them to double-check that it will work.
What are the pros and cons of Blockless?
- Geared towards streaming
- Reasonable pricing
- Helpful support
- … no app for iPhones
What is a VPN and how does it work?
If you’re having trouble keeping up with all the new acronyms that the internet keeps firing at you, then I’m sorry to let you know that there is a new one on the scene. Well, it isn’t really new, in fact it’s been offered for over ten years, but it has only really broken into the mainstream in recent years with the popularity of streaming services like Netflix or HBO Go. A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a service that hides the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer. It does this by running your IP address, through a server in another country. This provides better security, less tracking and, of course, can make it seem as though your device is in any almost any country, enabling you to access content from anywhere in the world.
