We tested the speed of My IP Hide as well as the major VPN protocols (OpenVPN, PPTP, L2TP/IPsec). The result is that My IP Hide is 13 times faster than VPN.
Recently we made a test to check the speed of our product My IP Hide. It’s an encrypted proxy service to hide IP and unblock websites. In theory, it should be much faster than its main competitor, VPN. How was its performance in reality? Let’s see.
The Speed of Direct Connection
The test computer was in Los Angeles with high-speed network access. We checked the speed of its direct connection (no proxy, no VPN), which is the maximum speed of its network.
Since ordinary users do not upload files frequently, we will focus on the download speed. It was 345Mb/s. It means 345 million bits per second. Since one Byte equals to 8 bits, the download speed in Chrome should be 345/8 = 43MB/s in theory. However, there was some loss in reality.
Since the download speed in Chrome was unstable, we only tested the connection speed by speedtest.net in the following test. To be fair, we used the servers in Los Angeles for both VPN and My IP Hide.
We used to provide a list of free Google proxy servers on google-proxy.net and update it daily. But Google blocks all the public proxies in the year 2016. So there is no google proxy server (IP address and port) on that page anymore.
What is Google Proxy?
A Google proxy (also known as the google-passed proxy) is an HTTP proxy which has the following two features.
1. It must support searching on Google. Proxies in China cannot access Google. So they are not Google proxy. Since Google uses HTTPS instead of HTTP as its primary protocol, a Google proxy should support HTTPS/SSL.
2. Google must not block it. To stop abuse, Google blocks suspect IP addresses which have unusual traffic. A Google proxy should not be on the blacklist of Google.
Question: I want to know how to use My IP Hide on my PS3?

Tell you how to change IP by comparing different methods and different services: proxy software, web proxy, http proxy, VPN, socks proxy and SSH proxy.
What is an IP address and how to change the IP address? An IP address (Internet Protocol address) is a numerical way to identify your computer on the Internet. Web sites can know much information by your IP address. For example, from your IP address, we can know your country.
How to Change IP Address
People change the IP address to avoid online bans and protect online privacy. How to change the IP address? Before trying any other methods to change your IP address, try turning off your Cable/DSL modem for five minutes. In many cases, this will change your IP address.
But that method can only change your IP address slightly within a small range. How to change the IP address to another country? Here are some methods to change IP address completely to another one.
