Welcome our new VPN servers in Austria – one more European country you chose

Posted on August 7th, 2018 by in Service Updates.


Just a week ago we introduced servers in Poland. Today we are ready to add another pin to the map to mark Austria as the 19th country to host our servers.

Thanks to everyone who voted in our poll, and congratulations to those of you who selected Austria! It has been a busy year for us so far, but we are not stopping anytime soon. Keep an eye on this space for more updates.

Our four new servers are housed in Vienna and available to those with paid plans:

AT #1-2 are available for Basic plans
AT #3-4 are available for Plus and Visionary plans

Why VPN servers in Austria are useful:

Many Austrian media sites, like ORF1, ORF2, ATV and others, impose a geographical restriction on viewing content and videos from outside Austria. But with these new servers, anyone around the world can browse the Internet securely using an Austrian IP address and a fast and reliable European VPN connection. This means that any Austrians living abroad can access news and media from home, no matter where they are. Furthermore, our Plus servers are optimized for streaming, so you can watch Hulu, HBO GO, ZDF, Channel4, and Channel5 (please note that to stream Hulu you will need a Hulu subscription).

    Could you please tell me how to add the New Servers; for Norway, Poland, Czech Republic and Austria.
    I can’t seem to find the instructions on your site.
    I have downloaded the zip files with the New Servers, but I am not certain what file to send the zip file to.
    Thank You very much.

    Hello Eric, whenever a new server is added, it should automatically appear on all of our applications (in some cases app restart might be needed). For configuration files, just simply log in to ProtonVPN website and click on Downloads tab, configuration files for new countries should be accessible there.
