Based in Romania, Cyberghost has been one of the most popular VPNs since it was founded in 2011. But, if you are looking for a change or just starting your VPN journey then what are the best alternatives to CyberghostVPN?

Find another VPN provider

There are hundreds of them on the market these days due to huge mark-up on the products they sell. Viable alternatives include Zenmate, ExpressVPN and NordVPN. Your best option is to search through the various sites yourself and pick the most appropriate service for your needs.

Don’t use a VPN

If all you want to do is connect to the UK to watch BBC, view ITV or catch up on UK TV channels then your best option is Beebs.

Beebs is a Google Chrome Extension which connects directly to the TV website making it lightweight and reliable. All you need is a Chrome browser

Try a peer-to-peer option

Another alternative is Hola Unblocker which uses p2p technology to connect you to the country you require. It suits many people but many others worry because you are allowing random strangers to share your internet connection.

Proxy servers still work

A proxy server is a simple VPN which will mask your ip address and allow you, for example, to watch the BBC iPlayer from the US. You will need to be a little bit more technically minded to set one up and be careful of the free ones - they tend to come injected with adverts.

Follow these simple steps to watch UK TV from abroad as an alternative to Cyberghost

    1. Download Chrome Browser, if you're not already using it.

    2. Install Beebs, this nifty tool redirects all your BBC requests.

    3. Your UK TV channel choice will reload and begin to work, and you can watch from outside the UK instead of using Cyberghost
