More Down Under! New VyprVPN Server Cluster in Melbourne, Australia!

Golden Frog is adding more options Down Under for VyprVPN users. The company just announced a new server cluster in Melbourne, Australia, the second of its clusters in the country. Earlier this year Golden Frog launched a server cluster in Sydney, and the company is scheduled to launch one soon in Perth.

The new server cluster in Melbourne is available for all VyprVPN protocols, including PPTP, L2TP/IPsec, and OpenVPN. VyprVPN users now have access to 40+ server cluster locations worldwide.

A remarkable 90% of Australia’s 22 million residents have internet access, of the highest rates in the world. But despite previously granting their people wide internet freedoms, internet censorship has slowly been going up in recent years. In November 2012 the government announced that over 90% of Australians using ISPs will have a web filter under new laws.

How to Access the Melbourne VyprVPN Server Cluster:
  • VyprVPN Desktop - For VyprVPN desktop users, the new cluster will automatically be available when you choose your server location.
  • VyprVPN Mobile - To enable Melbourne as an option for VyprVPN Mobile, just log out and log back into the app.
  • Manual Setup - If you manually set up VyprVPN on your operating system, you can update your VyprVPN hostname to: au2.vpn.giganews.com
Golden Frog offers unlimited VPN server switching and never throttles your connection. They have over 200,000 IP addresses so server connections are always available.
