Lime Proxies isn’t a VPN service. They’re oriented toward Internet marketers that need proxy servers for classified ads and other purposes.
The service sells very large packages and is clearly geared toward business users. Sign up and you get an assigned account representative, have access to 24-hour support, even over the phone, and more. This service is not appropriate for torrenting or other purposes where you need to make sure your traffic is encrypted, however.
Pricing and Plans
Lime Proxies offers eight different pricing plans. The pricing depends upon the number of proxies you want access to.
- 1 proxy for $4.99 per month
- 10 proxies for $9.99 per month
- 25 proxies for $24.99 per month
- 100 proxies for $99.99 per month
- 250 proxies for $249.99 per month
- 500 proxies for $499 per month
- 1,000 proxies for $750 per month
- 2,500 proxies for $1,750 per month
Each of the packages comes with 100Mbps maximum speed, two locations and five subnets.
You can pay with credit cards, PayPal, Wirecard, Payza, Amazon and Bitcoin.
Free Trial / Money Back Guarantee
Lime Proxies offers a free trial. After signing up at the site, you’ll be asked to validate with an SMS message. You can get access to a trial of the package of your choice after validating.
Privacy & Anonymity
Lime Proxies is not a VPN service, so the usual privacy and anonymity concerns do not apply. While a proxy server does change your IP, it’s not suitable for protecting yourself from surveillance, unless you’re using it with SSL.
Proxy services don’t provide encryption, so they’re not appropriate for torrenting.
Customer service with Lime Proxies was very good. After you sign up, you’ll get an email giving you the name of your account manager. This company does sell very large plans, so they’re clearly business oriented. When we had a question, the response took about thirty seconds.
Lime Proxies was easy enough to set up. Just get the instructions for using a proxy with your browser or email program, set it up and you’re good to go.
Windows, Mac OSX, Android, IPhone, etc.
If you have a browser that works with proxies, it should work with Lime Proxies on any device.
The speed test was very impressive, as you can see below. Proxies don’t universally encrypt data, so speed shouldn’t be an issue with this service.

Areas for Improvement
The help documentation could use some revamping. The backend has all the features you need, but it is rather complex. Given that a lot of the people using this service are likely to be Internet marketers rather than real techies, that might be off-putting for some customers.
Lime Proxies can sell you proxies and a lot of them. If you’re an Internet marketer and you need to have IP addresses from various nations to do your work, they’re a good option. Lime Proxies does give you a free trial, so it’s easy enough to test out the service before you buy.
