Spaces Limits for Mobile Network

Posted March 3, 2021 479 views

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?

  • Mobile networks are all in this way, if you want to avoid restrictions, you can only use vpn or proxy. Disguise your true identity by using a third-party ip.
    Proxy ip and vpn are also the most commonly used ways to surf the Internet.

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!

OpenVPN is an open-source Virtual Private Network (VPN) application that lets you create and join a private network securely over the public Internet. In this tutorial you will learn how to install and configure OpenVPN on an Ubuntu 20.04 Focal server using Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) for a modern and secure VPN configuration. You will also learn how to connect Windows, macOS, iOS, Android and Linux clients to your VPN.
  • Hi Alex,

    Thanks for your answer. Yes, understand that but when I will use digitalocean spaces as a public CDN it will be easily get limited for mobile data users. That should not be happening so asking for clarification if you guys manage or have different rules for mobile traffics.


    • Hello there,

      As far as I’m aware we do not have different rules for traffic coming from mobile devices using mobile data as this will be hard to track down. However, I will check with our support team and will get back to you.


      • That will be really awesome Alex, thanks for your cooperation. Waiting to hear from your team :)

        • Hello there,

          Our support team confirmed that we do not have any custom rules for traffic coming from mobile devices and data. Using CDN or VPN should help you not to experience issues due to the fact that providers use NAT on mobile network.
