Bright Data is one of the best-reviewed proxy server providers on the internet. That’s not a coincidence. Join us as we explain to you what makes this vendor one of the most reliable and privacy-friendly options on the internet today.

Formerly known as Luminati, Bright Data aims to position itself as a one-stop proxy provider and data collection leader. And the company seems to be nailing it to a fair extent.

The all-in-one, automated worldwide premium proxy network, known as Luminati Networks, now goes by Bright Data. It’s one of the largest proxy networks, with servers in cities and countries all around the planet.

Do you need a residential proxy? Bright Data offers you more than 72 million IP addresses from 195 countries. And this is only the beginning, as those addresses come from user devices. You can have an even better option, with 6,00,000 proxies directly from ISPs.

If you get a mobile IP from Bright Data’s servers, it’s from an actual mobile device. The vendor has more than seven million of those available, and having this degree of consistency in a proxy provider is rare.

But let’s say that you don’t need anything so sophisticated. If you’re looking for simple solutions, this company gives you outstanding performance at lower prices, thus outshining most of the other vendors in the market. Think 70,000 proxies with over 3,000 subnets at both country and city levels.

And how much of an expert do you need to be to profit from Bright Data’s services? Well, you don’t need to be an expert at all. The service’s most basic form comes as a Google Chrome extension. No coding is required. It’s not much harder than using a good VPN.

And besides the proxy thing, the vendor has some interesting additional products, such as a web scraper.
