New Residential Proxy Pricing Model: Pay-As-You-Go for Beginner
Smartproxy remains one of our favorite residential proxy networks. It has one of the largest proxy pools with 40 million IPs from about 195 regions. It does support geo-targeting at different levels (country, state, and cities). The proxies it offers are highly reliable and undetectable. From tests carried out, they remain the fastest in the residential proxy market so far.
In the past, all you need is $75, and you get 5GB of bandwidth to use the service. This is already cheap as the pricing of credible competitors’ is way more than that — usually above $300.
To make their service even more affordable, they introduced the Pay-As-You-Go option. With this, you can purchase as small as 1GB for $12.5. This means there is no minimum monthly or yearly commitment.
However, if you decide to purchase more bandwidth, you can go for their regular plans to get a better deal, such as 8GB for $80.

Unlike their residential proxies, there’s no limit to the amount of bandwidth you can consume. You’re also allowed to create unlimited connections and threads. You have the option to choose between sequential or non-sequential IPs. They have got support for IP randomization, and with their IP replacement feature, you can replace up to 100 percent of the IPs allocated to you.
