ZEIT Now CDN latency for some of our regions, from your current location.


What this means

The availability of a new Edge region means that we can cache your content and make it available across our network even faster, and deliver a blazing fast cloud experience globally.
Combined with our Edge regions in San Francisco, Washington DC, Cleveland, Portland, Omaha, Charleston, and Los Angeles, our newest region in Montreal will allow your customers in the North America to benefit from significant performance improvements.
Specifically, if they access from within or near Montreal, your customers will enjoy improved latency of over 2x over our previous options.

Smaller is better. The average latency (in ms) for a connection to YUL1, IAD1, and CHS1 from an office in Montreal.

YUL1 is Automatically Enabled

Following this announcement, YUL1 will be made available to all deployments automatically. All your customers in or near Montreal (such as those in Ottawa or Sherbrooke) are already enjoying faster speeds. You need not do anything to take advantage of our Edge region in Montreal.
Please note that regardless of your chosen deployment region, your static assets and dynamic responses will always automatically be cached across all of our global Edge regions, ensuring the quickest response time for all of your users.

Conclusion

We are proud to be able to offer a faster web experience to our patrons in North America.
Not only do we want to make a truly global infrastructure available, we also want it to be easily accessible. With our default Smart CDN, we are enabling every developer to improve the experience for their customers without any configuration.
