What are the differences between Datacenter, Static Residential ISP, and Rotating Residential Proxies (GB Plans)?

Datacenter proxies are sourced from data centers servers. These proxies feature unlimited bandwidth, fast network connection (1 Gbps) and high uptime (99%). Data center servers are where a large number of concurrent connections originate from, which makes data center proxies cheaper, although more detectable.


Static Residential Proxies (ISP) combine the features of their datacenter and residential counterparts: Even though they’re supplied from data centers servers, they feature residential IP addresses provided by the ISP. Just like data center proxies, these proxies feature unlimited bandwidth, faster network connection (10 Gbps) and high uptime (99%).


Rotating Residential Proxies (GB Plans) are backed by real users, who lend their IP addresses voluntarily to the proxy network. This is a rotating type of proxy unlike the data center and static residential proxies that retain the same IP all throughout the usage. This type of proxy is sold per GB plan bandwidth (e.g. 1 Gigabyte, 5 Gigabyte, and so on).
