PoPs in Latin America with minimal latency
Latency is a crucial component of guaranteeing the security and quality of services that NextDNS delivers globally and in Latin America; the situation was no different. The company needed an ally who had the infrastructure and experience in the regional market.
In order to offer a better end-user experience with the lowest possible latency, Romain and Olivier and the rest of the team at NextDNS required a partner who, in addition to having many points of presence in the region, had the knowledge, expertise, and availability to strengthen its presence in the continent.
