Finding fast proxy servers online can be challenging if you don't know what bakes an elite proxy server fast in the first place. There is no point in using a proxy if it is so slow that downloading anything from the web feels like putting needles inside your eyes. Here are some tips that you can use to make sure that you get the quickest and most responsive proxy server possible. It turn the nightmare of finding fast proxies right into a thing of the past.
The first thing you can do when looking for an elite proxy would be to check which country it comes down from. Do you live outside of the USA and want an IP from the USA? Well, be sure you check the location, or city, from the IPs on the elite proxy and pick ones that are as close to the country you live in as possible. Here's an example. If you live in the UK, i quickly would make sure I picked IPs on my small proxy that were anywhere on the east coast of the USA. West coast IPs would work fine, but the west coast is farther away from England than the east coast, so by picking IPs that are closer to your home country you're making sure you get the highest speed possible. The closer the elite proxies will be to your home country, the a shorter period that is required for the data to be transferred back and forth from the proxy. Of course there may be times when it doesn't make a difference, but it is worth remembering the next time you go proxy hunting.
Next you can do is check or ask the proxy provider for details of the speed of the network connection the elite proxy operates on. Proxies, just like your home computer, have a limited amount of bandwidth. It is best to make sure that your proxy server is running inside a data center that uses a 100Mbit connection to your proxy. You will notice that both 10Mbit and 100Mbit configurations are possible, even though the 10Mbit will work fine, there is a considerable amount of speed distinction between the two. If 10Mbit is slow, why would people use it? Well, hosts usually give you a choice of 10Mbit with unlimited data downloads, or 100Mbit having a set monthly quota. Regardless of this, I would strongly recommend that you make sure your elite proxy operates on a 100Mbit connection. The issue is if you don't setup your own proxy, then it can be difficult to know for sure, because hosts may just fudge the truth and let you know what they know you need to hear.
