Difference between regular proxy and 4g mobile proxy?

First of all, I am a beginner in marketing, so this may be a somewhat lacking question.

I am planning to utilize jarvee to use a static ip proxy in my country per account.

But
to appear in several articles
It’s good to use a 4g mobile proxy, but what the hell is the difference?

Additionally, in our country
There is a fixed proxy for the IP band leased by a general business operator.
It’s about $4

A carrier’s static IP is about $9.

Because there is a lot of price difference between these two, I am very curious and confused.

Are the pc proxy and mobile proxy separate?

Depends if you are actually buying a proxy or a data plan?

Usually if its a provider you have DC, residential and 4g.

If its static its probably DC which means its riskier and you can’t run many accounts on it. 4g you can run more as its more natural and harder to track.

My advice is do not take DC proxies because it could flag your account. Been doing this and not good

The difference between a static and a dynamic proxy, is that dynamic gives you so many IP addresses, while the static only gives you only 1 IP address.

The thing is that when you abuse Instagram by spamming people using an instagram account, Instagram will blacklist your IP address automatically, and thus your account for sure. So whenver you want to open a new account from that static IP address it will get banned automatically from the creation itself, without even doing any actions with it.

On the other hand there is 4G proxies, or ROTATING proxies (that can in some times be residential too). So what happns in this case, you open an account on a 4g proxy that gives you IP address 1, you do only 10 actions from it (which is a number that keeps you under Instagram ban radar), then you rotate it and “voilaaa”, you have a new IP address that you can use to go for a 10 new actions… and so on.

So having a static IP address will cost you 4$ per IP as you mentioned, but by having a 4G proxy that gives you a wiiiiide list of IP addresses and only cost you 9$ … You can do the math and tell what will work best for you.

I tried to make it simple here … but ofc you can’t just change the IP address and start doing actions infinitly, because if you can hide from the radar and won’t be catched by using same IP address, there are still other factors that will expose you… and the main one of course is the account itself, Instagram can still see that the account X, does 10 actions, then switch IP, and perform another 10 actions … totaling of 1000 actions a day. WHICH IS A BIIIG RED FLAG OFC.

The best way to use 4G proxies is with maany instagram accounts. In example, perform 10 actions with IP 1 from account 1, then switch to account 2 using IP 2 and perform 10 other accounts.

Yet, you’re not safe… because again, Instagram will know that you’re the same guy using all these accounts and all these IPs, HOW?? through fingerprints. For example you’re using the same phone to open the 2 instagram accounts… the same phone number in registration, same email …

So you have to be smart with itm and try to find your way through it.

I hope I have been able to help explaining.

4G+ Mobile Proxies are expensive and hard to find. They are complicated to configure and tricky to use. You can’t just trust any 4G mobile proxy provider, they might be sharing your connection or/and your data with someone else. BUT, there is light at the end of the tunnle and we are here to explore your options and shed light on some of the myths of 4G proxies.

Why 4G Proxies are expensive

Nowadays, over half of the world browse the Internet from their mobile devices. And this trend is not going anywhere. We are already using smartphones and tablets for virtually anything. Mobile devices are connected to the internet usually through their own 4G connection and are changing their IP address constantly at different intervals. The websites or social media platforms that you are connecting to … they see that you are accessing them from a phone over a 4G network, and will never ban your IP address or really know who you are (at least not based on your IP address).
These are the main reasons for using 4G proxies, but we are here to talk about pricing today!

We will discuss 4 topics to get to the bottom of these rare and precious 4G proxies:

  1. R&D
  2. HOW TO
  3. THE COST
  4. PROXY PROVIDERS

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT (R&D)

All ideas start with good research and then development, or trial and errors. It’s these trials and errors that will try your patience and push you to near insanity. Trying out technology that is not thought in Universities (including YouTube University) will make you wish you had someone by your side to explain to you why your 4G proxy is not working or being detected by the likes of Instagram & Co.

HOW TO MAKE A 4G PROXY

Any serious proxy provider will never give away this knowledge and the know-how they have acquired during their trials and errors. It takes time and money to learn how to build a stable and fully functioning proxy network. Any 4G proxy out there that seems to be too cheap and underpriced … is just that and too good to be true.

Fact is, that anyone who hasn’t given up in the process of learning how to build these systems – has no more patience or energy left to explain the many important details of a proxy network, to anyone.

Here a video that explains how proxies actually work. It might help you also understand why your selfmade proxies do not work or perform as you would like with certain social media platforms.

WHAT IS THE COST OF MAKING A 4G PROXY

You will need an unlimited monthly data-plan (anywhere between 20-60 USD/EUR per month), fresh SIM cards (not just one), hardware that will run 24 hours, programing skills (that alone will melt your brain), the right software (which is not openly sold on eBay & Co), server know-how and a secure backup, because something always breaks-down. And those are just a few of the needed components. And no … you cannot just connect your mobile phone to your PC or Laptop and call it a 4G mobile proxy. There is more to it. Anyone advising you differently is clearly wasting your time and lacks the needed know-how themselves.

WHO ARE THE 4G PROVIDERS

They are few and far between, for exactly the reasons mentioned previously. Once you realise that most quality 4G providers out there came about due to frustration and the lack of good enough iPv4 or iPv6 proxies (Datacenter/Residential Proxies) – you will also realise that their pricing is based on realistic calculations. Some will offer less features and will adjust their pricing accordingly. Some will be fully featured with many unlimited bonuses, and will charge you more obviously.

Let’s have a look at the pricing of 4G proxy providers below, and then we’ll dive into the details of their offers.

As you can see, pricing is pretty much the same across the board of 4G mobile proxy providers. And as you can guess, this is due to the fact that they all have the same cost associated and know that their margins are tight. Their cost of a data-plan alone is already eating up half their price to you, and that does not include any of their cost of running the hardware, software and support needed for such an operation. For this reason many 4G providers have become quite creative with their offers and started defining different specifications. Let’s look at some of the most common ones:

  • Unlimited Bandwidth or Traffic vs. Limited Traffic, which will cut you off after e.g. 10GB

  • Unlimited Social Media Bandwidth or Traffic, which will limit you to only connect to e.g. www.instagram.com & Co.

  • Unlimited Threads or connections at the same time, which just means that they will not limit how many accounts you connect to over their 4G proxy. Some providers will limit this anywhere from 1 to 5 accounts per 4G proxy, we’ll explain later why they would do this.

  • Private Proxy or Dedicated Proxy, will usually mean that you are the only one using this 4G proxy, but be careful here… The only way to know for sure that this is the case and the 4G provider is not selling your proxy multiple times, is to trust your provider. You can also ask for log-files, hardware setup pictures or become suspicious if your 4G proxy is losing its quality after some time.

  • Dedicated SIM Card is not the same as dedicated port, raw proxy or private connection. Always make sure you have your own SIM card with your 4G proxy provider, this way you should be the only one connecting through that SIM cards connection to the internet.

  • Clean IPs – all real 4G proxy IP addresses are clean and can be checked easily.

  • IP Pool is the number of IP addresses (usually iPv4) that a 4G provider can supply through his mobile internet service providers (mISP). Every mISP provider has their own number of IPs they give out (usually anywhere upwards from 50.000 IP addresses). So the more mISPs there are, the better – the more different SIM cards – e.g. O2, T-Mobile, Three, etc.

  • Proxy Speed is equal to the 4G connection speed of the used SIM card. This can fluctuate depending on time of day, of course the data plan being used by the 4G proxy provider, the connection quality to the cell tower and the proxy hardware being used. Usually, proxy speeds will range anywhere from 5-100 Mbps download or even upload. In most use-cases , the speed of your proxy is not relevant, as long as it can connect and do it’s task (unless you are planning to stream, upload large files or connect massive amounts of accounts to one proxy).

  • Location of he 4G proxy can be relevant, but only if you are planning location specific actions e.g. Logging into the same account from another device, then they should be in the same country. Otherwise, 4G proxies are location independent.

  • Rotation of your 4G proxy, better said the rotation or changing of your IP address. There are natural rotations that ocurre with 4G connections and these are initiated by the mISP e.g. when changing from one cell tower to another or reconnecting from your phone/modem to the 4G cell tower.

  • Automatic Rotations are when the 4G providers themselves reconnect to the 4G cell tower at set time intervals. This will renew your 4G IP address e.g. every 6 hours.

  • Manual Rotations are when the 4G providers themselves, let you decide, when to reconnect to the 4G cell tower. This will renew your 4G IP address whenever you want it to. This can be done in various ways and every 4G provider has their own way of letting you do this (if they even offer this extra feature). It can be done by clicking a button on their website, by setting up your own time intervals (e.g. every 5-15min randomly) or through an API connection to their proxy hardware.

  • API (application programming interface) is used by some 4G providers to let you connect your applications or software to their proxy hardware. This is a little advanced , but can be a great bonus feature, if you need it.

  • No logging (Log Files) or 100% anonymity is usually offered by all 4G providers and means that they are not monitoring your traffic through their 4G proxies or at least not saving that information. This can never be fully verified and should be used with caution. What you can verify is … that your traffic is using secure connections (https), which is standard for most websites these days (e.g. https://www.instagram.com)

  • Support is important and vital to all services. Make sure to check which type of support the different 4G providers offer (email, instant messaging or even sometimes phone). Then test their response times and ask them if they operate their own hardware or are resellers.

  • Sharing a 4G mobile proxy is possible and the same SIM card can be used for multiple connections. This is absolutely OK… IF the 4G provider informs you of this. Some providers offer limited threads, ports or connections and will reduce their proxy pricing to you based on this. They will basically divide the one 4G proxy through the number of accounts that are connecting through it. They might have 3x customers paying for one and the same 4G proxy, but each customers is limited to maximum 5x accounts, and because of this only 15 accounts will ever connect through that proxy. Let’s hope they divide the full price of that 4G proxy also by 3.

In conclusion, we can all agree on some common-sense tips regarding buying a 4G Mobile Proxy:

  • Do not compare datacenter or residential proxies with 4G proxies, they are different.
  • 1x 4G Mobile Proxy can be used for many, many accounts e.g. 5-10+ IG accounts or even more if you run them in shifts. At the same time you can also connect a bunch of FB, TW, YT, Lin etc. accounts. If you add all those up, you’ll end up with under 3-5$ per account, per month.
  • Get yourself a trial and then test your applications
  • If it is too good (cheap) to be true, it is!
  • Be nice and fair. You want to be able to build trust .
  • Communicate, ask for advice and demand the highest quality.
