Find a free proxy or VPN online, simple as that. Don't trust your info on it though.

There's also Tor if you don't want to sign in with an account: Tor (anonymity network) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It's extremely slow and some exit nodes were blocked by Google when I tried it out. A visit to the "What's my IP" site through the network turned up something in Israel IIRC, but of course it's luck-of-the draw as to where your exit node is. Again no unencrypted user info through it since lots of organizations monitor exit node traffic

Depending on what you are doing their is a chrome plugin called "modify headers" it works well for anything you need to spoof as an ip address. Downside is it does not really hide you, as it could be traced back if your doing anything that required no trace. You will be as fast as your connection vs relying on a proxy that's overrun with kids trying to do naughty things. This works with websites filtering by country.

Yep. You can only hide an IP so far or the network connection just won't work anymore.
