The New 2012 UK Access Services for Android

Make your Tablet the Ultimate Travelling Companion with the service for Android

The OpenVPN Service for Android provides a fast and reliable connection to our UK Access Servers, to allow you to connect back to the UK, wherever you travel.

OpenVPN and Backup OpenVPN Services

The Service for Android allows you to connect either to our normal OpenVPN Service or to our Backup OpenVPN service. Our Backup service uses SSL instead of the normal OpenVPN connection, so will go through most firewalls.

This allows you to connect to the service, even when staying in hotels, or using shared Wifi networks whilst you are away from home.

You can switch between the normal OpenVPN Service and our Backup OpenVPN Service whenever you like, allowing you the maximum flexibility possible.

Which service will provide a better connection for you, depends on your location and available network connectivity. Some hotels and public Wifi services, for example, do not allow VPN connections through their network. In such cases, you can simply connect using the Backup Service.

For normal Home use, we recommend using our normal OpenVPN Service. The normal OpenVPN Service in most cases provides a faster and more reliable connection.

How to connect your Android device to a TV

To connect your Android device to a TV either at home, or when staying in hotels, you need an MHL HDMI dongle, a normal HDMI cable, and an HDMI compatible TV.

You simply connect the HDMI dongle to your Android device, plug in the HDMI cable into the dongle and connect it to the TV.

Note: MHL is NOT available on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, only on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 and 10.0. Most MHL connections require an external power source such as a USB connection to your TV, or directly to a power adapter.
