Question

Spaces Limits for Mobile Network

So Spaces limits 750 requests (any operation) per IP address per second to all Spaces on an account

but, what about mobile networks? because AFAIK mobile data users normally under same IP address right? and there are millions of users under one mobile network. I would like to know if there is any way to bypass this or am I missing something?

Hello there,

This will mainly depend on the mobile provider itself. Most mobile ISPs operate a NAT that multiplexes several network-internal IP addresses through a single address visible to the public Internet.

Some providers will have more IP address ranges and not that many users will use the same IP address.

What you can do is to use a VPN on your phone and connect to any server/droplet and in that way, you’ll know that only you are connected from this IP address.

You can check this tutorial on how to set up a VPN:

Also, we have one-click installs from the marketplace for OpenVPN and WireGuard

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
