    Hi guys,

    I'm currently using BTguard but I'm not happy with the speeds. Does anyone have a good socks5 proxy provider? Looking for fast, unlimited data transfer and anonymous.

    Cheers.

    That would not speed it up much considering he would have to download it on the seedbox and then use FTP etc to get it on his pc.

    It wouldn't speed the total process as he 'd have to download data from the seedbox after the seedbox finished the dl of the torrent, but

    • he 'd be anonymous
    • he can seed to his heart's delight without bogging his home connection
    • the seed box will probably be much faster than his home line and we all enjoy seeing that torrent getting done in no time ;)

    How much slower is your internet connection when you're behind Btguard?

    Also, is it foolproof--you can download anything and you won't get in trouble?

    Seedbox is the way to go. You can find some good reviews on TorrentFreak.
