I can't help specifcally with VPNs. You are right to get 320kbs AAC
you'll need VPN to apperar to be in UK and you'll also need BBCiPlayer
plugin.  There are users of VPNs of BBCiPlayer and I think you'd get a
better response on a BBCiPlayer thread especially as not all VPNs work
with iPlayer Radio as BBC have measures in place. 

You thread title doesn't mention VPNs and VPN is your main problem so
many forum readers will not open this thread as they think it is a BBC
R3 problem. Also as VPNs are not a LMS or Plugin - you need platform
specific help.

1. You need to find VPNs that work with BBC iPlayer Radio
2. You need to get advice from Max2Play developers/users on how to
install a VPN (and specifically one from point 1)  on their platform.

A post on the BBCiPlayer plugin thread (
)  should come to attention of main BBCiPlayer users.  
Regarding which VPN service works - I think users castalla and utgg know
about BBCiPlayer and VPNs and user d6jg has indirect experience of VPNs
for BBC (i.e they fixed it for a nonUK friend) - if you get no response
you could try a polite PM to one of those guys.
