Two Frankfurt Servers for Streaming
You can get a German IP address by connecting to either of Windscribe Free’s two German servers. The ‘Frankfurt – Wurstchen’ server is a 10Gbps server, resulting in more bandwidth, greater server capacity, and faster speeds.
Windscribe Free’s Germany speeds are the best we’ve seen from a free VPN. We recorded an average download speed of 80Mbps connecting into Germany from the US. This is a 20% speed loss from our normal internet connection and 10% better than the second fastest free VPN, PrivadoVPN.
Our streaming tests show that Windscribe Free unblocks all geo-restricted German streaming sites, including German Netflix, ProSieben, RTL+, and DAZN Germany. You can use it to watch German movies, local TV, and sports like Bundesliga without even being in the country.
If you’re in Germany and looking for international content, you can also use Windscribe Free’s global server network to unblock HBO Max, Hulu, and stream British TV on BBC iPlayer and Channel 4. It doesn’t unblock US Netflix from Germany, though.
The problem remains Windscribe Free’s 10GB monthly data limit. This heavily restricts your streaming hours and file-sharing capacity.
EXPERT ADVICE: German TV and radio sites ARD, ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen), NDR (Norddeutscher Rundfunk), and MDR (Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk) do not enforce geo-restrictions and do not require you to use a VPN to watch outside of Germany.
