KeyCDN Launches New POPs in Latin America

We are excited about the newly established points of presence (POPs) in Latin America! So far, we could cover Latin America through Mexico City, Santiago, and São Paulo. Now Buenos Aires and Bogotá have been added. KeyCDN is always looking for ways to minimize latency and accelerate the delivery of assets worldwide.

The proximity to Latin American users now enables even more reliable and faster connections within Latin America and outside the region to anywhere else in the world. With these new POPs, our performance in Latin America has improved significantly, providing a better web experience. The new POPs are enabled for all existing zones. Our mission is to improve web performance continuously, and each POP contributes to that.

POP in Bogotá - Colombia

Bogotá is experiencing rapid growth, and in 2022 the population of Colombia's capital climbed to 7.9 million. Requests from Bogotà were previously routed to Miami, which is no longer necessary. According to our pricing, traffic from this POP will be billed to Latin America.

POP in Buenos Aires - Argentina

Buenos Aires - the so-called "Head of Goliath" - is home to over 15 million inhabitants, about one-third of all Argentines. The new POP provides better performance on the east coast of the South American continent.

How to check a POP location

Each POP adds the HTTP response header X-Edge-Location to all assets delivered via KeyCDN. For example, the POP in Buenos Aires uses arba. In the case of Bogota, the POPs identifier is cobo. 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

Check the status of a POP

Uptime and low latency is 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 locations schedules. In fact, Lima will follow soon and further improve web performance in Peru! If you'd like to request a POP in another location or a new feature please let us know and stay tuned for more exciting announcements.

Happy content delivery everyone!
