S Proxy Deep Dive

Written By Owen Crisp

Introduction

In this guide, we’ll explore the residential provider S Proxy and its technical details. S Proxy is a popular choice at Rampage. It is one of the higher-end providers, offering access to a huge IP pool and great worldwide coverage. It is often favoured as a “premium” provider, but available at a less premium price to Rampage Customers. Not to be confused with price to performance, this is an excellent proxy provider all round; often favoured alongside O Proxy.

Company Overview

Founded in 2018, S Proxy is an industry-leading provider of residential proxies. Based in the UK, they are another provider with a massive 55M+ IP residential proxy pool. S Proxy brings another considerable IP diversity to the Rampage offerings.

IP Availability and Supply

Consisting of a 55M+ residential IP pool and spanning 195 countries, S Proxy brings impressive quality and IP diversity to Rampage’s offering. Here’s a list of popular countries with good IP availability:

  • India
  • USA
  • Germany
  • United Kingdom
  • Canada
  • Japan

All IPs are ethically and transparently sourced through their network of either opt-in peer-to-peer or third-party providers.

Proxy Speed and Performance

We tested each residential provider so that you don't need to. Rampage endeavours to create fair, thorough, and reproducible tests to ensure each provider can be compared against another. Please note, your results may vary based on your individual factors when setting up.

Using a server hosted in a German datacenter, we tested 10,000 rotating proxies across 5 popular locations. These locations were picked to represent popular locations and give global coverage. The locations we used to test all providers were the following: United States of America United Kingdom Canada Germany Hong Kong

Our testing suite checks the proxy connection against IpInfo to remain as impartial as possible. We use the information collected from the request, along with IP enrichment data from IpInfo to provide a clear picture of the proxy.

In addition to the usual metrics, we have provided the standard deviation of the response times. A smaller standard deviation suggests that the scores are tightly clustered around the mean, indicating greater consistency or precision in the measurements.

Finally, this script also records the number of unique IP addresses per region tested, as this can be used as a judgement for the diversity of the IP pool. Here’s the results from the tests of S Proxy:

Location and Targeting Options

S Proxy supports a variety of precision targeting options as part of your purchase. You can currently utilise up to 3 different methods to geo-locate your proxies, taking advantage of the 195 countries offered by S Proxy: country, city, and state. Please note that due to the dynamic state of residential proxies, we can not guarantee 24/7 coverage, especially in remote areas. Here are some examples of this targeting and proxy formatting:

Country, with a default static session time: JxwYVhxK-cc-us-pool-sproxy-sessionid-4161014503-sesstime-30:xlTEZHRE@pr.rampageproxies.com:8888

City, with a default static session time: {username}-cc-us-city-new_york-pool-sproxy-sessionid-123123-sesstime-30:{password}@pr.rampageproxies.com:8888

Rotation

You can generate S Proxy in static and rotating varieties through our dashboard from a mix of pre-set country pools. The default session time for static S Proxy proxies is up to 30 minutes; however, we cannot guarantee the sessions are active at that time due to the dynamic nature of these proxies.

Pros and Cons

Pros of S Proxy

At a more mid price level, S Proxy offers a versatile and well-trusted residential proxy. Its large pool and country coverage targeting help justify its pricing position amongst other more value providers, alongside being a long-time favourite. In addition to this, the offering of further precision targeting lends favour to its more expensive price tag, bolstering its value offerings.

S Proxy’s IP count is amongst some of the biggest and most popularly used countries, boasting an impressive 9.4M IPs through India and 7.1M throughout the USA.

Cons of S Proxy

Despite this, there are some downsides to using S Proxy compared to other providers on the Rampage shelf. Despite offering a versatile proxy in terms of targeting and geodiversity, other providers offer more features at a similar or cheaper rate.

The more premium price can also make it unsuitable for those who require significant to extreme amounts of bandwidth, whereas others can provide better value at the cost of the overall pool size.
