    KeyCDN is dedicated to expansion throughout the globe and we are excited to announce our new point of presence (POP) in Montreal, Canada! This is our first POP in Canada and your visitors in that location should immediately see a dramatic improvement in latency and throughput. The new POP is now in production and has been automatically added to all existing zones.

    POP in Montreal Extends Content Delivery to Canada


    KeyCDN is dedicated to providing a strong presence throughout the globe and this new POP in Canada will be our 25th location, our 2nd location added in 2016. We are excited for this expansion into Canada as it is one region we have not been able to reach yet. The POP is located in a premium SSAE 16compliant data center in Montreal, Canada, just 200 kilometers from the capital, Ottawa. This is a very large hub for internet connectivity.

    Our POP in Seattle, WA does cover a lot of traffic for those living in the south-western provinces, but as you can see in the image below, the population density in Canada is much higher around Montreal, and the south-eastern provinces.

    If we take a look at the top 5 largest cities, Toronto and Montreal are more than 3x the size of Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton combined. (Population data is from the 2014 census and is the latest available as of January 26th, 2016)

    Testing Performance in Canada


    We have just made some big improvements to our Ping Test tool, Traceroute tool, and Website Speed Test this week. We added 4 additional locations, Seattle, Toronto, Miami and Sao Paulo (14 in total). You can now run tests from Toronto to better test performance of your site in Canada. On our test domain, perfmatters.io (hosted in Dallas, TX) ping times to Toronto are now under 40ms!

    Growth Of Internet in Canada


    The growth of mobile internet traffic in Canada is astounding as more and more people begin browsing on multiple devices.


    In 2015, Canada’s mobile data traffic grew 46%. – Cisco VNI

    Here are some additional statistics.

    • Canada’s IP traffic grew by 20% in 2014.
    • In Canada, IP traffic will reach 4.1 Exabytes per month in 2019, up from 1.5 Exabytes per month in 2014.
    • Canadian Internet traffic in 2019 will be equivalent to 54x the volume of the entire Canadian Internet in 2005.
    • In Canada, consumer mobile traffic will grow 5.9-fold from 2015 to 2020, a compound annual growth rate of 43%.

    Canada currently has more than 32 million internet users, which is over 87% of the population. The growth of internet users in Canada has risen around 15% since 2006 and it is ranked 21st among the countries with the most internet connections.

    Same Low Pricing


    KeyCDN has made a commitment to $0.04/GB globally and that still applies for Canada. We want customers to know that wherever you are located, every POP is included at our same low, pay-as-you-go price!

    How to Check if Content is Delivered From Montreal


    Each POP adds the HTTP header X-Edge-Location to assets that are delivered. In this case, it will be camo. The first two letters stand for the country TLD, the 3rd and 4th letter for the city. You can quickly check using Chrome Dev Tools or KeyCDN’s website speed test tool.

    What’s Next?


    We are always working on new features and expanding our global network to new locations. We have some great things planned for Q2 of this year! If you would like to request a POP in a certain location or new feature please let us know in our feedback and request forum.

    Happy content delivery!
