Graph explaining how Bright Data differs from other proxy services

Bright Data stands out amongst its competitors as a fast, reliable, quality, and cost-effective proxy network for businesses. Its use of residential IPs enables users to access almost any site immediately without being blocked or receiving incorrect information. Here’s what sets Bright Data apart:


Bright Data’s IPs are real residential IPs, so you can rest assured that they are of high quality, which means they can’t be blocked and have a high success rate. The way Bright Data manages these IPs is efficient, so you’ll always get the best IP for your needs.

Users join the network:

Bright Data only has verified, legitimate residential IPs available. It uses a tiny amount of bandwidth from users who choose to be part of the network while their devices are charging, have available resources, and are on WiFi. Many proxy networks that claim they have peer-to-peer networks build them from users who don’t know they are giving their IP. That way, Bright Data makes sure that you are getting access to the best proxy service for businesses.


Bright Data has a NOC team working 24/7 to ensure that the system never crashes and to fix problems as soon as they occur. In addition, you can always monitor the network status from your dashboard. You won’t have to worry about proxies being shut off or IPs being unavailable.


Bright Data is the fastest proxy network available because it allows unlimited concurrent sessions. This, combined with our extremely high success rate, enables you to outperform other solutions with the right architecture.

Every city in the world:

Bright Data has over 30 million residential IPs and is constantly growing, with over 3 million IPs available for use each day. This ensures you’re able to get an IP in almost every country and city in the world.

Ease of use:

With an API available in 9 programming languages, an easy-to-use Proxy Manager, and an advanced Browser Extension, Bright Data can be operated by anyone. It also features a Learning Hub, with how-to videos and blogs, to ensure that using Bright Data goes smoothly.


Bright Data is especially cost-effective because it reduces your development time to a minimum. Other vendors allow unlimited bandwidth but limit access to a few proxies or IP addresses, meaning that when those IPs are blocked by the target site or stop working, users have to purchase more.

IP management options:

The Proxy Manager enables you to change anything from the number of seconds between IP changes to the quantity of IPs in your rotation pool. Learn more about how Bright Data excels at IP management on the Learning Hub.
