Golden Frog's VyprVPN Launches New Server to Help Preserve Open and Free Internet in Thailand

New VyprVPN Server Cluster in Thailand Enables Better Online Privacy Protection and Security

MEGGEN, SWITZERLAND--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2013) - Global internet security and privacy company Golden Frog continues to expand its worldwide VPN service by adding a new location in Bangkok, Thailand. The company's VyprVPN is the fastest and most reliable VPN service in the world. This is Golden Frog's 37th VPN location, which includes cities in North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania. As part of the company's mission to enable people to take control of their internet security and privacy, it will continue to add more server locations around the world in 2013.

VyprVPN is a secure personal Virtual Private Network (VPN) service that encrypts internet connections to defeat monitoring of online communications, protect online privacy and preserve an open and free internet by providing access to restricted websites. The Thailand location is now available to all Golden Frog VyprVPN customers.

Thailand has some of the toughest censorship laws in the world, ranking 153 out of 178 in Reporters Without Borders' 2010 Press Freedom Index. After the 2006 military coup, more than 45,000 websites were blocked by government agencies. Following the state of emergency in 2008, ISPs had to block hundreds of sites for "disturbing social order and national security." The Internal Security Act (ISA) allows Thai leaders broad, unrestricted censorship powers and the lese-majeste regulations allow for up to 15 years' imprisonment for insulting the royal family.

"Internet freedom in Thailand has been restricted by government censorship activities for years," said Sunday Yokubaitis, President of Golden Frog. "We are committed to enabling people to take control of their internet experience. Golden Frog is proud to offer the Thai people a reliable VPN service that encrypts their internet communications and protects their Internet freedom and privacy."

Golden Frog's mission of a free and open internet for all continues to grow in importance as users across the world face internet security and privacy threats.

VyprVPN users now have unlimited access to 37+ VPN locations across North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, including the following:

  • Asia - Hong Kong
