Our valued customer submitted experience below "VPN Blocker Saved my Trip to Oman"
I recently was in Muscat the capital city of Oman for a business conference at the Grand Hyatt Muscat and was shocked when I tried to log on to Skype to talk with my girlfriend in the States but was told that the site was blocked in my current location. I travel frequently and do not get to spend much time with my girlfriend so I rely on Skype to keep in touch since it is extremely cheap and convenient. Undeterred, I then Googled Skype in Oman and quickly discovered from the search results that Omantel blocks many websites due to the country's strict decency laws. I decided to drop down to the front desk and confirm whether this was indeed the case. The young Omani quickly confirmed that Skype in Oman is blocked and that Omantel is required to block the site due to the country's laws. Before I went back to my room for a lonely night, he suggested that I call my girlfriend on the phone to see if she could access a VPN website, setup an account and help me unblock Skype in Oman.
While the phone call home was expensive, it was well worth it! My girlfriend, not subject to the censoring placed on me and those in Oman by Omantel, was able to find a VPN site and sign me up for the service. She signed me up for an account at VpnAccounts.com and noted how easy it was for her to place the order from the United States. She gave me the IP address, user name and password and I was able to manually configure my VPN and unblock Skype. I was so happy to have my Skype access back that we "talked" until three in the morning. When she finally decided that she needed to leave to go to work, I was still feeling pretty good about being able to unblock Skype and was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that the VPN service from VpnAccounts.com also allowed me to access some adult dating sites. As an added bonus, the VPN helped me set up a date with a beautiful woman in Spain for later in the week and I enjoyed a great night in Barcelona.
For anyone travelling to Oman, I recommend that you download a VPN service before you arrive since many VPN websites are blocked and you cannot order from Oman.
