I am interested using a VPN service. I want to visually monitor online advertisements in different location, Germany, France Nederlands and the UK.

I would like a VPN provider which both connects from these locations to the website of interest. It should also allow me to choose the location of the server I connect from.

A big plus would be the ability to compare the website from different connection side by side

Do any providers allow this?

I think your understanding of what a VPN is, is a bit lacking. It sounds like you are more interested in setting up proxies in various countries in order to view a specific website from their point of view. I don't think you'll find any particular company that would provide this functionality specifically... but there are thousands of proxy companies that would allow this type of functionality.

I wasn't trying to be rude. Just making an observation. How a VPN operates and situations where you would use it differ greatly from how a proxy operates. The example you describe seems to be more suited towards a proxy than a VPN. – TheCompWiz Sep 8 '10 at 15:01
Except that he could log into the vpn provider and then his computer would work with the IP from the provider. Suitable solution. – TomTom Apr 14 '11 at 13:52

@TomTom, VPNs do not necessarily allow you to use the remote gateway to access the Internet. – Chris S Apr 14 '11 at 14:05
