What Are Mobile Proxies?
Unlike data center and residential proxies, mobile proxies utilize the bandwidth and IP address of a mobile telecom provider plan (think T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, etc.). When a cell phone user purchases such a plan, they are given a SIM card for their phone, which provides a way to connect to the telecom provider’s satellites and mobile cellphone towers. Our proxy software allows us to use real phones and their SIM cards, so when you buy a mobile proxy, you are using a real IP address from the telecom provider. This gives you more anonymity while scraping for the data you need.
What Is The Value Of Mobile Proxies?
All telecom providers use a technology called Carrier Grade NAT, or CGNAT – the magic little acronym that makes mobile proxies so valuable. CGNAT is a type of network address translation in IPv4 network design which allows many users to use a single output IP address.
Here’s what this means: if a website sees scraping activity from an IP address, they will normally choose to ban said IP. But if the site was to ban a mobile IP, they would also be banning hundreds or even thousands of other real cell phone consumers! Website owners will be more hesitant to ban an IP address if it knows that legitimate consumers are using it, so when you use mobile proxies, bans will occur less frequently. This lets you efficiently acquire all you the data you’re scraping for!
Frequently Asked Questions
Will bans still occur?
Although mobile proxies are strong, they don’t completely remove the responsibility to use good techniques to scrape websites at scale! If you’re not using proper headers, using proper cooldown times, etc. you can still get banned. (Need a little help with this? Check out our proxy management application: Proxy Pilot!)
Do you offer static mobile proxies?
We do not offer static mobile proxies at this time. We are only offering rotating mobile proxies, which will assign a unique mobile IP address to every connection you make. These types of IPs are ideal for web scraping use cases, and you can learn more about IP rotation here!
What mobile generations do you offer?
We offer 3G and 4G mobile proxies!
Does my bandwidth expire?
Yes, your bandwidth will expire every 30 days. But you may purchase additional bandwidth after a monthly package has been purchased.
Are mobile proxies slower?
Most phones have a maximum of 50 Mbps download speed, and only 10 Mbps upload speed. If faster speeds are your primary need, then using our rotating residential proxies, or even better our ISP proxies, will give you faster speeds than rotating mobile proxies.
What carriers do you offer?
Carrier availability depends on the contributions made to our pool by end users. We have higher ethical standards than any other provider, so our acquisition process is a little different than most – you can learn more here.
We do have our own self-managed devices from T-Mobile and AT&T. If you need a specific carrier other than those two, please contact us.
What countries do you offer?
At this time we primarily carry US mobile proxies, but can easily add more from other countries. Contact support if you have a specific country request!
