Physical connections are internet connections that can be plugged in to any of your VPCs. The difference with the default datacenter internet connection is that physical connections will have a residential/mobile IP which will make the VPC utilising that connection to be suitable for connecting to websites that track or profile network setup and possibly restrict access based on the connection type used.

If you target bet365 or other websites that track your network setup and block access from non-residential IPs, you have 2 options:

First option is straight forward but the availability of connections cannot be guaranteed, as a connection can only be used by one member at any time and can be kept by a user indefinitely. The second option requires an upfront cost and a few days to install the connection, but is cheaper and availability is guaranteed as connections are always reserved for their owner.

You will then need to configure your RDP client to connect to the above host with the credentials below:
password: the VPC's password (this is not your website password)
