What the Heck is a VPN—and is it Something I Really Need?

VPN Explained

A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a private connection between your PC (or other smart device) and a remote server. This connection is protected by encryption. Remote workers often use a VPN to securely connect to their business networks; however, people are now starting to use VPNs to protect their privacy. A VPN uses the server’s information to browse the internet rather than revealing your true network information—so, anyone who is trying to track user data sees the information associated with the VPN server, rather than your device.

Using a VPN comes with a few disadvantages
Is your privacy absolute? Not really. With a VPN, your Internet Service Provider isn’t able to see where you’re going, but the VPN provider and Google will know.

VPNs are known to slow down internet connection speeds. Creating and maintaining the VPN uses up bandwidth and requires additional time to be spent on encryption and it makes you dependent upon the VPN server’s internet connection. These factors can affect the connection speeds you experience.

Finally, using a VPN can create conflicts with services that rely on using your internet address to determine where you live. Since a VPN masks your true location, the ability to stream local sports and other local content can be adversely affected.

Make the choice that’s right for you
At MVT, we respect the values that drive your decisions—and we invite you to make your own choices as you consider the possible benefits of using a VPN. However, it’s also important to us that you also understand the often understated negative impacts using a VPN can have on your service.
