    For a few years now, I've noticed more and more US based news sites blocking EU visitors (they don't want to comply with privacy and cookie laws here. I've kinda given up clicking through to articles. If I'm very interested in the article, I just have to find a local source or VPN it.

    You know that you can always use a proxy? IMO, the best proxy is a VPN with servers located all around the world, such as https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/ [privateinternetaccess.com] It takes about 5 to 10 seconds to switch servers from one country to another, one continent to another.

    Disclaimer: While I still think PIA is about the best VPN, it isn't exactly what it started out to be. https://www.hackread.com/private-internet-access-pia-vpn-sold-israel-privacy-concerns/ [hackread.com] If you go that route, you'll have to shop around for whatever you think best.
