KeyCDN Launches New POPs in 2023

We're excited about the newly launched points of presence (POPs) in 2023! The year is not yet a month old, and we have already launched 4 new points of presence on two different continents, and more will follow this year! Namely, Copenhagen, Dublin, Lisbon, and Lima have been added. Our mission is to continuously improve web performance, and each POP contributes to it. The new POPs are in production and have been automatically added to all existing Zones.

Copenhagen - Denmark

Three other KeyCDN POP sites previously surrounded Copenhagen. With a dedicated POP, latency for visitors is reduced even further, resulting in better loading times.

Dublin - Ireland

With the introduction of a POP in Ireland, requests no longer need to be forwarded to the POP in London. The total population of Ireland as of January 2022 was 5 million, with approximately 2 million residents in the greater Dublin area. This makes Dublin the ideal location for an edge server.

Lisbon - Portugal

The POP in Lisbon brings better performance to Portugal, with a population of over 10 million people.

Lima - Peru

Lima is our 6th POP in Latin America. The total population of Peru in 2022 was about 33.5 million. Lima, with over 11 million inhabitants, is home to about one-third of all people living in Peru.

According to the Speedtest Global Index, Peru has an average internet connection speed of just over 67.5 Mbps. The connection speed has room to grow compared to other countries in the region.

How to check a POP location

Each edge server adds the HTTP response header X-Edge-Location delivered by KeyCDN. For example, the POP in Lisbon uses ptli. The first two letters stand for the country TLD, while the 3rd and 4th letters are for the city. You can quickly check the response headers using Chrome DevTools or a simple curl command like the one below:

curl -I
HTTP/2 200
server: keycdn-engine
date: Fri, 20 Jan 2023 09:05:47 GMT
content-type: image/jpeg
content-length: 195025
last-modified: Thu, 16 Jul 2022 07:06:27 GMT
vary: Accept-Encoding
etag: "5f0ffc73-2f9d1"
expires: Fri, 20 Jan 2023 09:05:47 GMT
cache-control: max-age=604800
x-cache: HIT
x-edge-location: ptli

Check the status of a POP

Uptime and low latency are very important to us, and we ensure that your content is always properly delivered from the nearest POP. If you are experiencing any issues with any point of presence, check our status page to verify if we are performing any scheduled maintenance or open a support request with us.

What's next?

We have more sites planned for this year. More POPs in Asia will follow and further improve performance! If you want to see a POP in another location or a new feature, please let us know and stay tuned for more exciting announcements.

Happy content delivery everyone!
