    You are talking about changing your proxy address, you can't change your actual IP address. However, it will not give you any improvement in performance.

    If you got fast download speeds before it was purely coincidental, you would probably have got just as good performance without the proxy. Usually, using a proxy simply adds an extra link to the chain, so your performance actually degrades.

    There's one exception to that, which is when you connect to the ISP's caching proxy. They do not usually allow connections except from their own customers so as you said it was probably a fluke, even if you could remember the address used you would probably find it is now blocked.
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
