On holiday in France the other week I wanted to watch football on Sky on my laptop, but was unable to as I found that if you are out of the country, you are denied access. I'm told that many people get round it with a proxy or VPN. Thing is, which is better? Do you pay for access to either of them or are there good free ones? Is it hard to set up and do either of them slow down your access to the net?
Any advice from experienced user would be appreciated.
