    Hi guys,

    I've currently got squidproxies set up but when I run my connection through one of the 10 IPs I've been allocated, the connection speed is hideously slow. Is there anything I can do to make sure they're at their fastest speed?

    I've configured the proxies using the firefox plugin foxyproxy and manually entered them and selected "use (ip address) for all urls". Have I not configured it properly? Is there something I can do to try and optimize them better?

    Any help on this is really appreciated :) thanks

    Sounds like this issue is on their side. What speed you got?

    Did you get the shared, or private proxies plan? Personally I've never had much luck with their proxies. I tried them twice and both times they weren't even close to suitable. To their credit though, both times they refunded me with no hassle at all and were very professional.

    I got the private proxies plan.

    I went for it because so many people rate squid proxies as the best private proxies provider. The speed of these proxies tho is abysmal. It keeps grinding to a halt :(

    That's definitely strange. Based on my own tests as well as tests I've read online, Squidproxies provides the fastest proxies on the market.
