    Hello BHW.
    I don't understand what are subnets and why do I need them buying proxys ?

    Ex. If you buy 5 private proxies, the provider will allocate you proxies from 2 different prefixes (subnets)
    that means that you will get 4-5 different ips ...

    Ex. different c prefixes (subnets) :
    1. 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.255
    2. 192.168.2.0 - 192.168.2.255
    and so on

    when the provider is going to allocate the proxies and has told you that they will allocate from 2 prefixes (subnets) then you will get proxies (based on my example) from prefix 1 and prefix 2.
