Do you wonder how to get a French IP address? If you are located somewhere outside France and you are in need of a French IP address it can easily be arranged. Here you will find the best ways telling you how to surf the Internet like someone located inside the borders of France, with a French IP.
We have earlier written an article about how to change your IP address. In it you can read about pulling out the cable of your router, but if you are located outside France it will not help you to pull out the cable of your router 3 million times, you will never get an IP address in France still. Another method presented is to connect to a Proxy server, and this can in fact work. It is however a very unstable method, requiring some technical insight and changing preferences in your web browser, and it will not guarantee you anything. It might work in one second, but in the next second it will not work anymore, so in case you are in need of a service providing you a French IP whenever you want it, the best solution is a VPN connection. Such a connection will connect your device/computer to a server in France and once connected all your movement on the Internet will seem to origin from France, thus making all geo-blocked content available once the connection has been made.
There are many VPN providers out there, but we have tasted the most famous of them to find out which of these VPN services have the best speeds and services out there for those looking for an IP in France.
