Pakistan connected with one of the World's fastest Internet service CDN
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's PTCL has been connected with World's fastest Internet providing service.
PTCL has added Cloudflare’s Content Delivery Network to its list of internationally renowned global CDNs, which include but are not limited to Google, Facebook and Netflix.
Most of PTCL’s Pakistani domains are currently hosted outside the country. The major implication of this new agreement is that these domains are to, from this point onwards, be hosted locally, meaning greater accessibility from all three regions – North, South and Central – of Pakistan.
This move will ultimately result in an enhanced user experience for PTCL’s valued customers. Numerically speaking, the latency to downstream customers is set to decrease from 150ms and above to close to 20ms—a 750% improvement. ------------------------------
Barring improved latency, Cloudflare’s new CDN also enables PTCL to access a better DNS. Since every internet related action is initiated with the aid of a DNS request, it is crucial for a company to access the fastest possible directory in order to optimize performance.
In what is a major breakthrough for the telecommunication and IP Network industry, PTCL is now connected to the world’s fastest DNS- (126.96.36.199), which will now be accessed, hosted and served locally.
