I am new to this proxy scenario and still groping my way around. What I have found is that the public proxies are always sooooooooo slow and unreliable.

I used ToR with its automatic configurations and it worked like a charm but browsing we reduced to 50% of its speed and I don't have a super fast connection. I downloaded foxyproxy and it auto configured with Tor replacing Privoxy. What I need is US based fast proxy and don't know how to do that with ToR.

Right now, I have narrowed down to two proxy service i.e. Hide IP NG which has its own 6 servers and works perfect. My other machine has anonymizer and that is also working fine. While the former let me selects US based IP the latter does not. So, what happens if certain sites block those particular IPs provided by the proxy service ? The software is rendered useless ??

Pls guide, thanks @

If certain sites block those particular IPs, you won't be able to use the proxy service to visit them.

Though public proxies are unreliable, it's difficult to block them all. If you want to use public proxies, our software can help you:
Elite Proxy Switcher - Easily testing and using proxies.
Socks Proxy Checker - To be your chief socks proxy checker.
Buy Proxy - Buy checked proxies from My-Proxy easily and quickly.
