Back to school season is upon us and whether you’re heading off to University for the first time or trying to make the most of your senior year, there a number of great gadgets that can make your student life easier. While a new laptop or a streaming box will allow you to get online, you won’t be able to access all of your favourite sites due to your university’s firewall. By using a VPN to connect to the Internet, you can bypass network restrictions and browse the web freely.
Most VPN service providers offer services globally and thus charge in US Dollars rather than in local currencies, so we've listed pricing in Dollars for the sake of simplicity. Bear in mind that when you click through to the actual deals, you may find the prices automatically displayed in pounds, or whatever your native currency may be.
These are the best deals we found for getting the most out of your University’s Internet:
