Is Cloudflare the best CDN for Australia?

Of all cdn providers in Australia, Cloudflare is the cdn company with edge servers in the most different locations (8). This does not mean Cloudflare is the best content delivery network in Australia in terms of performance. However, having more POP locations in the country does typically help deliver content with low latency, especially in large countries.

Akamai in Australia

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 Australia is listed in that document, but specifics are not mentioned. It remains unknown how many POPs or edge servers Akamai has in Australia.
