Could somebody please tell me if it is possible to regionally change your IP address throughout the uk.

I have seen software like tunnelbear that change countries but was wondering if you can just change regions.

 

for example .. go from leeds to doncaster?

 

Any help would be great

 

Thanks

Your IP address is assigned by your ISP whether it is a static one or not. Should you wish to obfuscate your point of origin then a VPN like Tunnelbear will do this for you but, as I understand it, you appear to originate from the other end of the VPN connection.

 

Just a minor point, Leeds to Doncaster is hardly a differnt region, they are both in Yorkshire and only 30 odd miles apart as the electron travels.

You can, but you will need an IP from that particular region.

 

I suggest you look for private proxies instead of VPNs. There are providers selling Uk proxies, and choose among these providers who has IP from the region you want.
