No absolutely not, having the traffic coming from local CDN’s and the shorter but higher traffic is very much preferred. My comment was just to point out that yes there is a significant difference on ISP traffic between delivery via CDN/PNI/Peering than transit as in our case transit is a long way away. Local backhaul is plentiful and relatively cheap where as subsea wavelengths are extremely expensive and require months of planning. I’m not assuming transport just going on real world traffic affects.

Just so I am clear, you are saying “I would rather have it come over my undersea cables than from inside the datacenter”?


And you are assuming TCP transport.
