Disappointingly Slow Proxy Browsing Speeds...

    I use switchy to switch between proxies when I am creating various different social accounts. I am using semi-dedicated proxies from buyproxies dot org, and it takes me over 7 seconds to load a page. In scrapebox, the proxies show as "fast" so I am at an end as to why they are acting to slow.

    Has anyone else experienced this? I'm praying that there is a setting I can tweak. If not, I'll need a new proxy provider...

    Shouldn't be happening, proxies should perform the same either way. Are you doing the Google check in SB as well?

    Happy to provide you with fast proxies if you need them.

    in SB they show up as fast because SB does a ping connect to a proxy verifier which is like 1kb. When you use the proxies in your browser to surf websites you download like 1MB or more (html,java,images..flash..) until you get the page loaded. Thats why it is slower..

    anyways, you can try some other provider and compare speed

    I was about to subscribe to your service but then saw that these proxies cannot be used for twitter. Do you know a place where I can get proxies like yours but that will work well for twitter?

    Sorry, most others do support Twitter. I have unfortunately come very close to being sued by them due to spam on their site from my proxies, hence me banning access now. Thanks though for taking to the time to read the terms, most users don't and then complain later. Rep given.

    again, i no not recommend using semi-dedicated (shared proxies) for social media websites. You need dedicated proxies all the way, and also keep in mind 1 dedicated private proxy price can not be lower then $1
    The same ip maybe was already used by somebody else to create account(s).
