How Frequently Does the IP for a Proxy Rotate?

Our proxies are 100% mobile-based. Now what’s different between mobile IPs and other types of proxy IPs? Their ability to connect to real mobile network towers (AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile). Because the mobile IPs connect to real network towers, the standard rotation depends on how frequently these network providers rotate IPs among users. Apart from a time interval set by mobile network carriers, there are also other caveats that determine when your dedicated device rotates the IPs, some of which are traffic density, and market locale. There are also instances when network providers rotate IPs of customers everytime they connect to a network. So in a broader sense, there isn’t a single, standard timing that fits IP rotation time intervals.

What Is the Difference Between Normal and Manual IP Rotation?

All mobile proxy IPs are meant to rotate either after a definite time interval, or owing to certain external factors, like a person’s location, or if a user turned off the connection for a while, or how high or low the traffic density is. Normal IP rotations are beyond the control of a user, and is usually mediated by the network provider. This means the network provider of your proxy product will decide when the IP should rotate and the rotation takes place accordingly.

Contrary to Normal IP rotations, a user has full control over rotating IPs with the Manual IP rotation option. With this feature, you can set a standard rotation interval for your IPs, for them to auto-rotate at the set time interval. You can also rotate them using a button at your own disposal. Basically, you don’t have to depend on the network provider’s rotation protocols here and you’re the king of your own rotation! How cool is that?
