Expanding Our Global Footprint
Spiking International Traffic is Directly Correlated to Internet Access Expansion
Internet access is drastically expanding, and the proof is in the numbers. 42.3 percent of the world’s population has internet access, and this is just the beginning. As a global content distributor, we’re constantly monitoring for trends in the marketplace and have recently seen a rapid increase in global internet usage. Our customers’ content is accessed worldwide, and reaching their audience is our #1 priority. Our analytics have shown that the largest opportunities to reach new audiences are in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America where internet usage is growing at a rate of up to 6,498.6 percent.
We Never Stop Evolving
As internet usage goes up in these areas, so will the demand for our customers’ websites. We’ve purposefully pre-deployed Super PoPs (points of presence) around the globe to accommodate for our customers’ growing audiences. Our powerful network of Super PoPs allows our customers to reach a wider number of users more efficiently and effectively. We’re growing at an accelerated rate to ensure that our customers’ content is delivered: on every screen, everywhere around the globe.
We’ve planned ahead and based our expansion on the following factors:
- Improving coverage where internet usage is increasing
- Expanding to regions with fast population growth
- Adding locations where we’ve seen a growing percentage of traffic
In 2015, we expanded our presence in the United States, Europe and Australia with new Super PoPs scattered across five cities: Virginia, Boston, San Jose, Paris and Melbourne.
And we’re not stopping there. In Q2 of 2015, we have future plans to expand in Asia and the United States across five more cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Seattle, Atlanta and Miami.
Next year, be sure to look out for our new PoPs in 23 different cities across the United States, Europe, Asia, South America, the Middle East and Australia. As the population of internet users continues to expand, so do we!
