    Hi,

    I am interested in investing in some private proxies and I would like to know everyone's opinion if I should be getting 100 proxies from a single provider or spread them over multiple (2 or 3).
    Of course, purchasing more from 1 provider entitles you to bulk discount but in light of the recent debacle involving a proxy provider, I'm considering spreading them out just in case and to reduce downtime.

    Would love to hear your opinions on which proxy provider I should go with and how I should allocate the proxies.
    I'm considering purchasing at least 100 proxies.

    Thanks!

    Definitely spread them across 2-3 different providers. Not only will this protect you should a provider go tits up, but it can also happen that one provider's IP range gets blocked/flagged by the site(s) that you're using the proxies for.

    you can get all from one provider but get from reputable sellers it should be fine because if 1 provider is good and rest 2 not then it will be pain in a** it's my 2cent
