Obtaining a proxy, you have to choose the number of Ports.
For example, when obtaining a mobile proxy, you get 10 ports in the package. It means that you will be able to have 10 connections simultaneously to different IP addresses/proxy.

As a rule, you may need additional ports in case you have big team and a large number of people who often use proxy. Then it is necessary to have a Port for each person. Practice shows you will need 2-3 streams/ports for one person, for everyone to work independently.

Another reason that you might need more ports than a standard package has in case you need to receive big volume of information in short period of time. For example, to parse a resource of 1000 pages on the internet. To do that in a very short period of time you will need 1000 ports, to request the information needed using all ports simultaneously, and not waiting for a port to get free for parsing of another page.

A common Mobile package gives access to ports with numbers from 9000 to 9009 (when authorised with login and password)/10000 to 10009 (when authorised with IP). Each port gives a unique output IP.

A common Wifi (residential) package gives access to ports number 9000 – 9299/10000 – 10009 (authorisation is corresponding with Mobile one). Each port gives a unique output IP.

If you hesitate how many Streams to obtain – it is highly possible that 10 Streams for Mobile and 300 Streams for Wifi (residential) will be the best choice for you.
