Absolutely disappointed with the service. The dns service work fine for about three months but then we started getting error messages and getting kicked off the system. Nothing changed on our side, just suddenly we had to re-activate the service… Sometimes three or four times during one show. I had a computer specialist come to our house three times, we called and tried to get information from smartdns but they were absolutely rude and unhelpful. The error messages were The DNS wasn't set up properly, I had a professional come in and it was. Then the next message was that I was using VPN or some data center… Which I wasn't. After a couple hundred dollars trying to fix the system we gave up. I don't usually do reviews, but this is ridiculous and I would like to help other consumers not to get ripped off.

One of the worst companies to deal with. I used the 14-Day trial and decided to sign up for 2 years. After 10 days, nothing worked. Support told me that I had to set up ip forwarding on my router. After going back and forth for a few days, I decided to open another trial to test. Everything worked well with the trial account. I asked for an explanation and possibly a refund. They only gave me my money back! DO NOT fall for their cheap prices! RESPONSE TO REPLY: The reply is completely bogus. I have a static IP address. Therefore, it doesn't update and no need to activate the same IP again. The service did not work and that's why I opened another trial account. Your support team actually said you can't just update the DNS on your pc, but you need to set up IP Forwarding on your router in order for it to work. I only opened the second trial to see if you were lying. Which you were. It was not overlooked. I can post all the correspondence here to prove what you are saying now is again a lie.

I am hesitant to write this 5 star review because if this service suddenly stops working from its popularity I would understand. I am a former Unlocator customer, but I can unblock more with this service and its cheaper. Great product so long as it continues to work! Update: been over 2 weeks with no problems to report. Great service!

I can heartily recommend the Smart DNS Proxy team to anyone out there - they make everything easy, and their friendly, professional attitude and willingness to accommodate make them stand out head and shoulders above everyone else, and in my experience, that is what makes the difference Thanks guys, and keep it up!

Terrible product. I paid for two years of their service in advance, but it stopped working for me in a matter of months. Support staff didn't help, and in fact stopped talking to me once I enquired about a refund. There are plenty of better services to give your money to - avoid this one like the plague.

I have been using this Smart DNS Proxy / VPN provider since their early days. As many, they had hick-ups, but they have fixed them is a timely manner. The communication with the Support Team and Escalations Team kept me updated with regards to all my cases. I think there is always room for improvement, but I would give them a solid 5!

Very good support team and good reply time. I am enjoying it! Probably the best service on the market to unblock regionally restricted media. This service actually works to unblock Netflix unlike others I have and tried. Give them a chance and try - it's free. Excellent customer service BTW!

You guys have an excellent team in customer services. They resolved my issue and treated my ignorance(at times) with the utmost respect and professionalism.
