All of the buzz around this has made it for alluring good and bad companies alike. Here are a few services that offer VPN location in Nepal. The VPN locations with Nepal will help you isolate your real IP address and access geo-locked services like Net TV and WOW Time to watch local news channels.
A little about virtual VPN locations
While accessing a service that blocks or allows users based on location, IP address is the first thing to determine the location of the client. But IP addresses can be switched over and hosted on a different location for different reasons. These are known as virtual VPN locations. VPN service providers use fake locations as some countries don’t have the infrastructure and also mostly to saves costs using servers in better equipped countries.
As Nepal is still a developing country with limited technology infrastructure, most VPN providers only offer virtual locations.
Express VPN (Virtual Location, Kathmandu)
The first one on the list is Express VPN. Express VPN is a very fast VPN with numerous locations all over the world. It is also considered one of the most secure and private VPN service provider by numerous credible sources. However, It was also one of the first VPN’s caught to be using fake VPN locations to have the global reach to rare locations like Nepal and other countries. But since then they have publicly disclosed the availability of physical and virtual VPN locations for countries like Nepal.
