    I buy a lot of proxies.. and when I say a lot I think I am making the payments on a few boats for a few proxy sellers. Glad to do it as they provide a service/product I need.

    I recently made some changes to my deal with Squid and I'd like to say that the customer support was top notch. I've been a client for several years (I bet they have a wicked cool boat from my money!) and we make periodic adjustments based on some variables as is the nature of my business with need for proxies.

    As to a service they are excellent, as to customer service, they are excellent.

    I thought it appropriate to give them a positive shout out based on my experience the past couple of days and thus the post.

    I'd agree with you on that one. I've tried them twice in the past. Unfortunately, they didn't end up working very well for me, but I wouldn't really fault them necessarily either, and their service was amazing. I've actually referred people to them, and occasionally still do, specifically because of how smooth and understandable I found their customer service to be. I was refunded both times, no "hard sell" or any questions asked. If I think there's a chance I could use them in the future I'll probably try again too. It's getting harder and harder to find places like that it seems. Thumbs up to Squid from over here too.

    Many people on this forum selling their stuff should learn from them when it comes to customer support...

    I've been using them for the past two months. Good proxies, mine however are moving very slow and timing out as of 2 days ago. Was checking this thread to see if anyone else had the problem or if it was just me. :p

    I contacted support a couple minutes ago so we'll see whats upppp

    i am using buyproxies since i purchased my first proxy and their customer support rocks.

    if you have good support and good product then you will have happy customers.

    will put my second egg in squidproxies soon.

    Hmmm.... have my personal information hacked weekly by someone that has a personal vendetta against them and they appear powerless to stop it?

    I'll pass on that.

    They have been hacked AT LEAST 3 times in the past month from just the clown mass bragging about it through emails.

    I'm definitely going to pass on squid for quite awhile

    I tried squidproxies after BTB recommended them a few months back and needless to say they are nothing short of stellar! And that is in every aspect so far. Proxy quality A+, customer support A+, keeping up with my stupid requests A+!

    EDIT: Btw, this is my 3rd proxy service and probably the last I'm gonna need.

    Customer support is good, no questions asked prompt refund. But they couldn't protect their user db against penetration, guess what two or three times which is kinda ugly. if you want ips for any generic use its ok but for quality ones i don't recommend them at all!

    That's good to hear some people found them useful. I used them once and it was really bad! Half of the private proxies didn't even work and when I asked them to replace the proxies I received a "Well I'm sorry we aren't good enough for you" message. If that is what you call good, then you might find buyproxies AMAZING!

    JournoNick, you stated...

    I'm curious, what were you using them for? And, did you find another provider?

    I posted it because of my positive experience with the company and the product... didn't you read why?

    Take a look at the last line in my original post once again but read slowly.

    Squid proxies are great in my book and it's a model business for customer support. Even if I run into a slow
    proxy I can always ask them and they replace it without any hassle. BTB is just doing what a loyal client should
    and telling people about his personal experience with them.

    It's not like he has affiliate links in this post and come on its not like his business model is small enough where
    he needs too anyway. :) What makes a community great is people coming out and showing whats good and
    companies sure do appreciate it. A pat on the back to a company is a good thing sometimes if they earned it. :)

    You have a term in business called an attrition rate and its normal for not every single client to be satisfied.
    Ask anyone and you will find out that some people love a certain restaurant when others don't.

    Did your friend get a refund? You guys are kinda missing the point. Everyone's experience and opinion will be different on the performance of the proxies, that's the same for anywhere. The point is their customer service is top notch. So all other things being considered equal, they're worth giving a shot. BTB made an objective post about his experience with them, I followed up based on some similar positive experiences in the past, and so did a few others. No one is saying you should hurry up and go get them specifically, but if you like to do any sort of research before purchasing a product/service then you'd know threads like this can come in rather handy.

    @Crewchief007 I was using them for scrapebox and GSA activities. Yes I use buyproxies now, I think I said that they were amazing.


    @akacash Yep, I got a refund. They were happy enough to give that.

    I'm not a GSA user and rarely fire up Scrape Box as we have our own proprietary platforms that we developed and use Squid for them so I can't really address that software.

    For us, although there is the occasional bump in the road, I'm pleased as punch.
