Now Serving Sydney Australia

May 30, 2014

At MaxCDN we know that every millisecond counts. As being the fastest CDN in North America we’re happy to announce that we’ve expanded our network with an additional point of presence (PoP) in Sydney, Australia.

This location will be available as an add-on called “More Locations” for $15 a month or $150 a year.  Currently we have 2 PoPs in the add-on: Singapore and Sydney Australia.  For customers who already paid for Singapore will be grandfathered in at $10 / month and moved over by our engineers over the next couple of weeks.  For Enterprise customers, please contact your account manager to talk about enabling Sydney.

Using Cedexis radar we can see how adding Sydney to the mix has improved our response time drastically:

We look forward to adding more PoPs to the “More Locations” add-on in the near future.

      @disqus_LnNHqC1xHt:disqus nothing on the road map at this time. We want to have a presence everywhere so sometime in the future definitely. Where are you thinking we should have a POP?
