Default VPN

In the hope that I'm in the right 'ballpark', I am keen to subscribe to your Gold Award VPN, NORD.
However my ISP is Plus Net which doesn't allow, or support, the very concept of using a VPN, so what must I do?
Switch to another ISP?
Recommendations?

Many tanks, folks.

Plusnet does not support using a VPN but that is different from not allowing it.

It seems you may have to change your smtp port to get it to work but I doubt Plusnet can stop you from using a VPN.

What VPN are you using?

Have you contacted the VPN's help desk for advice on whether any of their servers are compatible with Now TV?

IP Vanish .


Yes i contacted them and tried a few suggestions but to no avail i am no expert and some of the suggestions were beyond me.
i also looked at NOW TV forums and lots of people have had the same problem with various VPN it just seems that NOW TV does not support VPN to the extent even if you try and google search for VPN info the page wont load the
the
re is nothing in there terms and conditions that warned you of this.

This is the response i got by email but i cant open because of the blocking so i opened in my tablet but i dont understand what they want me to try as i can still use the VPN in my tablet at least its not a complete waste of money my contact with NOW is 12 months after i will look elsewhere.
