While reviewing, we emphasized on the proxy parameters such as speed, ping, geolocation, and IP compatibility. During the review process, we also reviewed their service to find out how user-friendly it is. We have summarized the pros and cons of the service in a table below for your convenience.
BestProxyAndVPn Types and Pricing
BestProxyAndVPN, as their name suggests, offers both proxy and VPN services. However, all of their proxies are private proxies, and they do not offer any shared proxy plan. In this review series, we will keep our discussion limited to their proxy service and will not focus on the VPN service.
The proxies provided by BestProxyAndVPN are classified as elite class high anonymous private proxies. This practically means that the proxy request generated by the proxy server replaces your PC’s IP address in the HTTP header file with their server IP and doesn’t include any of the forwarding protocols. This makes you appear as browsing the websites from their server locations with the masked IP address. BestProxyAndVPN also offers SOCKS 4/5 proxies as well as HTTP and HTTPS proxies.
The pricing plans are very straight-forward. There are only six packages with monthly subscription and one with weekly subscription. However, the pricing is among the most expensive we have seen so far.
The weekly package is a good thing since this can help you decide whether their service will be good for you. But even so, the price is much higher than competitors which definitely has an adverse effect while any potential customer is considering options. Their pricing plan as of January 2019 is given below:
|Number of proxies||Price||Price per proxy per month|
Locations of proxy servers
BestProxyAndVPN has one of the widest range of locations provided by any private proxy service. With servers in over 80 cities covering many major countries, BestProxyAndVPN boasts their premium proxies.
For any proxy packages with more than 6 proxies, you can choose as many locations as you like. BestPrxoyAndVPN has servers in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Singapore, South Africa, Canada and almost all major cities in EU and the USA. So you can be pretty confident that they will cover your specific proxy location requirement should you have any. You can also check the whole list of their server locations here.
You can also choose the specific cities you want the proxies from while choosing your plan or replacing your proxies. This is pretty handy if you need to access sites from specific cities due to location constraints or an added advantage. This is also helpful while buying tickets, social media promotions or craigslist posting.
Ping Test & Proxy Speed Test
To review the proxy service offered by BestProxyAndVPN, we purchased a package of 6 private proxies from BestProxyAndVPN. We performed some tests on the proxies that help us determine the proxy quality and suitable application of the proxies.
The first of the four tests was the ping test that checks the connection establishing time required by the proxy server. Ping is an important parameter of any proxy service since this gives an idea of the delay introduced by the proxy server. If the ping time is much high, you might experience significant laggings while browsing. Since packet loss is also associated with high ping, proxies with high ping are also not suitable for bots.
We used whoer.net, an online tool to check ping to a server from various locations, to determine the ping to the proxy server from three different locations, Georgia (USA), Quebec (Canada) and London (UK). As you can see from the test result below, the ping is higher when the distance between the server location and testing location is greater and vice versa. The ping result is satisfactory since all of the tests have lower than 200 ms ping duration. This lets you have a smooth browsing experience while browsing the internet. However, two of the proxy servers were irresponsive during the testing which is not much positive. The detailed result of our ping test can be found below.
|IP||Proxy location||Ping from Georgia, USA (ms)||Ping from London, UK (ms)||Ping from Quebec, CA (ms)|
|126.96.36.199||Newark, New Jersey||51.7||86.8||25.4|
|188.8.131.52||San Jose, California||8.8||140.2||63.6|
Good ping is of no use if the proxy server cannot deliver the data fast enough. For this, we need to test the speed of data transfer as well, which is the third of our tests.
To check the speed of the proxies, we first activated each of the proxies. Then, we tested the data transfer speed using the number 1 online speed testing site on the internet, speedtest.net. This let us have an authentic result which can be trusted easily.
The test result was somewhat satisfactory. One of the given proxies was a bad proxy and didn’t connect to the servers at all. Out of the rest five proxies, the speed was only 5 to 15 Mbps, which is okay for general browsing but may not be suitable for video streaming or similar high bandwidth tasks. You can see the complete results below.

IP 1: 184.108.40.206
IP 2: 220.127.116.11
IP 3: 18.104.22.168
IP 4: 22.214.171.124
IP 5: 126.96.36.199
Geolocation Test / ISP Test
We perform the geolocation test to verify if the proxies are from the location as mentioned by the proxy service. As such, we performed the test on all six proxies we purchased from BestProxyAndVPN.
In this test, we checked the geolocation data of the proxy IPs from two geolocation data provider using an online tool, iplocation.net.
The site aggregates geolocation data from some major location testing companies and displays in a convenient table. It also includes information about the ISP and the organization.
Since the proxies are non-sequential and were provided from the locations we requested, we’d say the test result is pretty good. You can see the test result from our test below.

IP address compatibility Test
IP compatibility is an issue that many faces, since often proxy providers restrict access to certain websites so that they can charge a tariff for those websites. This technique is usually not seen in the proxy services that do not offer specialized premium packages.
While BestProxyAndVPN doesn’t offer any specialized proxy packages for sneakers proxies, we found Adidas site not working with their proxies. However, other major websites that we tested were working fine.
