Is Cloudflare the best CDN for Asia?

The cdn provider with edge servers in the most different locations in Asia is Cloudflare (45). Having POPs in many locations on the continent certainly helps in delivering content with low latency to end users. However, simply because Cloudflare has more POPs does not mean Cloudflare is the best content delivery network in Asia in terms of performance.

Akamai in Asia

Akamai is generally considered to be the largest CDN with edge servers in the most countries. However, the content delivery network company never publishes details about how many POPs they have in a country or where their CDN edge servers are located. The Akamai website has a public PDF with all countries where Akamai maintains Server Points of Presence and Asia is listed in that document, but specifics are not mentioned. It remains unknown how many POPs or edge servers Akamai has in Asia.
