Cloudflare as extended their presence in the USA by adding a new location in Phoenix, Arizona, which is the 11th point of presence in North America for Cloudflare.
This means faster page loads and transaction speeds for your sites and applications, as well as for the 6 million Internet users throughout the Southwestern US that use them.
The vast majority of Internet traffic in the US is exchanged in only a small handful of cities: Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, Dallas, Chicago, Miami, Ashburn (Virginia) and New York. These locations evolved into key interconnection points largely as a result of their status as population and economic centers. However, if you’re one of the 236 million Americans that live outside of these metro areas, you have to hike quite a bit further to access your favorite content on the Internet.
So with this in mind Cloudflare has expanded their presence by adding the Phoenix location. Want to learn more what Cloudflare did in Phoenix to make your sites faster from the region, we suggest to read the full post at the Cloudflare blog.
