I have been shopping for a proxy. Gathered as much information about the options as possible. Tuff job because i don't know anyone personally who is a subscriber so everything is based on web searches and forum posts. Considered these mostly these ones: Secure-Tunnel.com They have been around for a few years and seem to be staying = not an overnight proxy that disappers and you're left with endless emails to support asking for your money back. Read good reviews and bad reviews about the service. Haven't read an awful one yet. Price isn't that bad either. They seem to have a good image. I don't think a service can have a good image if they don't reply back, don't issue refunds or provide tunnels that don't work. Being US based is a minus. Probably not a stellar choice for a hardcore anonymity seeker. Its more like a privacy service against your isp, malicious websites and good for wireless. Perfect Privacy A very good site with comprehensive faq section. Loads of servers around the world. You get them all with a years subscription both vpn and ssh. Same ip for all users to make possible tracking more difficult. A bargain price considering the volume of servers you get along with possible upgrades. (Not sure i would have the guts to even connect to a server in Iran but what an option to have. Imagine someone trying to track a posting made from that ip!) Are they trustworthy? Tough call. Haven't found bad reviews and they even posted replies to a german forum (a little transparency goes a long way). Trilightzone This is the one i'm most conflicted about. The services and options are very good. At least on paper. Pricing is good too. Didn't find many reviews. Only some user postings which i took with grain of salt. When i read that they might be partners with another site privacy.li i naturally had to search for that. Regulars on this forum need no introduction to them . Their sites are completely different so its possible they are not run by the same person. They have admitted to sharing servers which is critical: just the doubt that folks behind privacy.li might monitor my traffic is enough to send me running as far away from this service. A damn shame considering the options they offer The reason why i have procrastinated with my decion is the question of trust. Anyone can set up a service like this and you are supposed to trust them? If someone i know would say "Yeah, used them for 2 years. Connections are excellent with good speed, never has shown my ip when tested and support always replies within 24 hours" then decisions like this would be much easier. I know that the best way to evaluate a proxy is to try it out. Many providers could exhibit some transparency beyond "we are a group of experienced IT professionals committed to your privacy" and therefore they would look less.. shady.
