Latvia is a little nation with a romantic capital with an amazing atmosphere. It might be hard to move to Latvia with family and luggage, but luckily it is much easier to reside virtually in Latvia. In this article we will tell you how to virtually reside in Latvia with a Latvian IP address.
Lots of TV channels and online movie sites require their visitors to possess a local IP address to watch their broadcasts and shows online. This is to keep the copyright rules and that is why you will often be blocked as you try to watch content online from outside Latvia, meant to be seen only by those actually located in Latvia. Still, there are ways to get by such blocks and the most popular and stable way to do this is by using a so called VPN connection. If you want to find out more about what a VPN actually is, read the article linked to.
How to get a Latvian IP address with VPN
There are tons of VPN providers out there, but not all of them are good and some of them are more like scams. We have tried tens of VPN services and based on all our tests of both speeds and clients and refund questions we have some favorites. Still, when you look for a Latvian IP address the most important is what kind of download speeds the VPN service provides from their Latvian servers. Beneath you can see the speed tests and the download speeds we got testing five great VPN tools.
Latvian IP VPN speed test:
- StrongVPN: 4,5 Mbps
- HideMyAss: 11,5Mbps
- Overplay: 2,5Mbps
- IPVanish: 8Mbps
- VPN4All: 3Mbps
Based on this test we can gladly tell and proclaim that HideMyAss is the VPN service you should subscribe to if you are in need of a Latvian IP. Not only do they have the best speeds, but in general they have the most servers in all over the world, they have great customer service, they have a 30-day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied and their client is very easy to install and use.
If you for some reason want to use another VPN service than HideMyAss we can warmly recommend IPVanish.
Once you have made a subscription to a VPN service and you are connected to their server in Latvia you will need to restart your browser. If you after restarting your browser check your IP address, you will find out that all your movement on the Internet seems to origin from Latvia, thus unlocking all content that has earlier been blocked for you because you were located outside Latvia.
Enjoy surfing the Internet like a Latvian. If you have tried it and have any experience, be it positive or negative, feel free to write a comment!
