I thought it would nice to have a thread to talk about where you buy your proxies for those of you who have subscriptions. Post your experiences good or bad and recommendations aswell.
my first experience was with bestproxyandvpn. I didn't really know anything and went with them on a whim. It was $5 a month for 1 proxy, I got 1 refresh a month which I used and the private proxies were always fast. I contacted support twice in the year that I was subscribed to them and both times their support got back to me within 10 minutes. When I started looking into more proxies I saw that there were better deals out there so I moved on.
I found My Private Proxy next and was expecting the same quality and service. Initially though it was a shit show. At first I bought the 5 proxy package for $10.57 usd (theres a 10% recurring discount you can use on signing up which I appreciated) I thought the price was infinitely better than what I had been paying for 1. Where do I even start. Okay, so I get my proxies and they were completely unusable. I can handle slow proxies but I needed an unbroken connection. I waited it out for a day to see if things would improve. They had a refund policy so I messaged their support (it's very important to be nice to your support ppl, this is a life rule) hoping to find a resolution and figured worst case I'd ask for a refund if we couldn't find better proxies. Long story short, use the free refresh before contacting support. They take 2-3 days to get back to you for each response but are nice and added a few days onto my subscription as compensation. Unfortunately I've fucked up several times and am always punished with days of downtime. (canceled subscription while waiting for a reply, then had to ask for it to be reversed. The second month I got a notification that payment would come out of my paypal soon so I went to their site and paid for it there thinking I was on top of things, then watched payment also come out of my paypal days later lol so I had to contact them again to get one refunded) They're good aslong as you dont need to contact them. Refresh your proxies each month though. I was afraid of getting a bad bundle and my great proxies became unusable after a month and a half. I've since bought bigger packages from them. Oh, and they've used the maintenance excuse word for word a few times now lol.
