Regardless of the selected server, location of the proxy will be the same as location of the phone using with

For example, the phone is located in Brazil, so Brazilian mobile proxies will be created. If the phone is located in Poland - Polish mobile proxies will be created, etc.

The server should be chosen in such a way that the distance traffic goes from the phone to the iProxy server and from the server to the end proxy user is minimal. You can read more about the traffic path in our article.

The ping of the proxy

The greater the physical distance, the greater the proxy ping will be. Ping is the time during which the server receives information from another device, in other words, it is the waiting time required to open the web page of the site. If the phone and the proxy user are located in the same city, then you should select the server closest to this city. For example, a resident of Berlin should choose a server in Falkenstein.

There are lots of situations for proxy sellers when the phone is in one city and the end user is in another. In this case at least one of the path sections should be minimized.


For example, the phone is located in Kazakhstan, and the proxy will be used in Germany, the server in Kazakhstan or Germany could be choosen. The ping result will be the same, since the traffic will go the same distance: Phone is in Karaganda (within a radius of up to 500 km) - server is in Karaganda (within a radius of up to 50 km) - Client is in Frankfurt (4475 km from Karaganda). Total distance gone by traffic: 500 + 50 + 4475 = 5025 km Phone is in Karaganda (within a radius of up to 500 km) - server is in Frankfurt (4475 km from Karaganda) - Client is in Frankfurt (within a radius of up to 50 km). Total distance gone by traffic: 500 + 4475 + 50 = 5025 km

Please note, if you need a proxy from a country or city besides the one you’re in, you have two options:

  1. Select a trusted mobile proxy provider from our catalog.

  2. Ask a friend who is currently in the target country to install our application and make you a proxy.

For those interested in specialized solutions, we offer proxy for video streaming and proxies for social media. Additionally, you can create your own 4G proxy to meet specific needs.
