    I wanted to watch ice hockey world championships via youtube but my country was in a blocked countries list for that channel. I happend to scan for fast proxies on daily basis and I used fast netherland based proxy to bybass this restriction.

    Unless there is no restrictions enabled, it does not matter which country from the proxy is. Of course if a proxy is located in your own country, it's likely faster to you.

    China proxies has restrictions due to their goverment. A little warning regarding chinese and taiwan proxies, because of massive amount of pirated copies, MS does not provide security updates for those copies of windows, therefore many chinese proxy is a botnet proxy, especially the ones on custom port such as 6666, 54321.

    a specific country based proxy can also be helpful when posting in some classified sections like Craigslist.

    botnet proxys are bad because it is selling a proxy of a computer
    of a compromised with malware

    A botnet is a collection of internet-connected computers whose security defenses have been breached and control ceded to an unknown party. Each such compromised device, known as an "bot", is created when a computer is penetrated by software from a malware distribution; otherwise known as malicious software. The controller of a botnet is able to direct the activities of these compromised computers through communication channels formed by standards-based network protocols such as IRC (Internet Relay Chat) and HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol).[1]
