How to improve online gaming with a VPN

Online gaming has come a long way in a very short time. It used to be that playing with friends would mean everyone would pile over to someone’s house with a stack of pizzas and their spare controllers. Now, you don’t even have to be in the same country of your opponents. We truly do live in the future.

I’m sure that you’ve got your online gaming setup completely dialled in. You’ve got your two screens, your ergonomic gaming chair, your dog trained to bring you breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as some cold beers.

But did you know that you can improve your online gaming experience by using a VPN?

Get the fastest connection by switching regions

A VPN will protect your security while you play online, but if your VPN also has a number of regions available, it can give you access to a faster connection and, thus, better gameplay. SurfEasy VPN has 13 different regions to choose from; simply click onto the drop-down Regions list and switch between them to find out which gives you the fastest connection.

Unblock region-specific titles

Let’s say your buddy lives in the UK and your live in the US. He wants to play this great new game that’s popular in his country, but you need a UK IP address to play it. Normally, you’d be SOL. But SurfEasy VPN allows you to connect to the UK region and “borrow” a UK IP address. This means that you can access the game, and get busy with important things like defeating your friend.

Access new titles first

Is an exciting new title getting released in a different country first? No worries; connect to that region and get access to the best games as soon as they’re available.

Better gaming on any device

It’s not just your home computer or laptop that benefit. With SurfEasy for iOS or Android, you can enjoy better gaming on the go and rest safe that your net connection is protected while you play your favourite games on your phone or tablet. Whether you play from your home, office or on the bus to work, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.
