Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) offers an extremely affordable way to communicate with our loved ones and business partners. However, a lot of countries (especially Middle Eastern and Latin American nations) have blocked VOIP services within their borders to prevent information exchange or to protect the revenues of the telecom companies. If you want to use VOIP services like Skype from such locations then you must use a dependable Virtual private Network service. Besides allowing you to bypass firewalls and censorship, VPNs also protect VOIP sessions from snooping and hacking attacks. Here is a list of top 5 VPN services that offer great speeds and bandwidth to support VOIP services:
