Go back to Amazon AWS CloudFront

I start to use CDN from April 2010, with MaxCDN. Later, I moved to Amazon, FrontCloud in August, 2010.
For some reason, I move back to MaxCDN. I start to use MaxCDN again from June 2012. In April 2013, I started to use CDN77.
A few days ago, in March 2014, I go back to Amazon AWS CloudFront. It is a reliable CDN service provider. The price is pay as you go. Based on my network volume, I prefer this price structure.

I setup CloudFront with custom origin server. Add CNAME on it. One of the CDN rules is to use two CDN host name, not one, not three. Two is the perfect number and best performance.

I tested my new CloudFront CDN ping value through CA ping tool. There are over 30 monitoring stations worldwide. My testing result is:

  • AWS CloudFront CDN,

Average: 48.29
Median: 3.05

  • CDN77 CDN

Average: 51.69
Median: 20.15

It shows that CloudFront has better ping value.

Download speed comparison Globally

There is a picture present the global download speed comparison, which is sourcing from Akamai.
First of all, I would like you to test your own Internet speed first. It is including Download speed, Upload speed, and Ping time.
I recommend the speed testing service of Speedtest.net.
Just a few minutes ago, I tested my Internet download speed in office. It is connected by Telus.
The result is following:
Download: 2.54Mb/s
Upload: 0.69Mb/s
Ping: 25ms
Testing between, Telus Internet user and Lynnwood, WA server.
Now I have my own current speed testing result. Let us see how about the rest of the world.
