    I'm in no way affiliated to Luminati or Hola network I just wanted to share their service with you guys because honestly what they are offering is kind of awesome for SEO and other IM related businesses!

    This is not a proxy service for 'normal people' this is more targeted toward developers as you have to integrate it with your softwares (you can still use it with your browser but this won't work with any pre-made tool)

    Basically they are owned by Hola network a free VPN company and they use their users IPs to create this big P2P proxy network this means you can access millions of REAL IPs from a lot of contries, when I say reals it's because if you do a lookup you'll see these are IPs form residential networks this mean that your proxies will look way more real :)

    Anyway it's pretty cool and they have an awesome API and a 7 days trial, only downsize you have to contact them to join and they are a bit pricey since they charge per GB of data (I think it's like $10 per GB and can go down to $4 if you consume a lot)

    I'm sure that if you make bots or any other automated software you can see the power of this kind of service ;)

    Check them out, their support team on Skype is very nice: https://luminati.io/

    For slow scrapers this might work, but to give an idea to what I spend on bandwidth for my proxy service I am using over 500 Mbps as of now... that would be $10 every 2 seconds for my costs, when I can just pay my ISP $25 or $35 for 10 TB of data instead.

    Yeah definitely not for scrapper or any bandwith consuming task but maybe for Youtube comments since you can do it with http webrequest like YT Comment Blaster, anyway I'm using it for a few of my projects and I'm sure some people will find that interesting

    Good thing you're not affiliated with them, but took the time to write such a nice write up for no reason..... Their service is a complete joke. How's that for your review. Maybe you don't realize it, but this isn't 1999, almost anyone worth anything offers free bandwidth. Glad you're enjoying it so much, lol.
