AceVPN (or Ace VPN) is a U.S.-based virtual private network (VPN) subscription provider. It offers private network services over a public network. AceVPN has been used to circumvent IP restrictions in certain areas to access internet and app functions.
Beginning in May 2013, Ace VPN usage soared when the Turkish government shut down Facebook and Twitter access within its borders in retaliation of the Gezi Park protests. The crackdown on internet usage was seen as a major human rights violation and VPNs became popular in the nation and elsewhere. Ace VPN has remained one of the most popular VPNs in Turkey as the nation's Parliament has begun debating the controversial topic of internet censorship.[dead link]
