Speed issues

Residential proxies

Many things can affect the speed of a residential proxy: a different ISP, location, mobile signal strength, etc.

Nevertheless, our proxy network is optimized for the best speed, and our average proxy response time can vary anywhere from about half a second up to a few seconds depending on the country and various other factors. You can check how we tested our residential IP speeds here.


Random German residental proxies speed tested with Proxyway tool

Due to the nature of residential proxies, some IPs are faster than others. If you face speed issues, try to change the port and/or endpoint. Then, run a couple of tests to see if this fixes the issue.

The tool you are using can also affect the proxy speed. For example, a web browser connection will always be a lot slower because it has to load every media file. Your own internet connection and location also impacts the connection speed.

Datacenter proxies

Datacenter proxies are usually faster than residential. For the best speed, you would need to select proxies closest to you, meaning a choice between two of our provided IP pools, one being in the US and the other in Europe.
