    How does Web Acceleration work?

    Web Acceleration leverages a global network of more than 165 Points-of-Presence (PoP) to keep your web content closer to where your users work, play and browse. That combines with its open peering policies to help reduce latency and maximize web speed, so your customers feel like your server infrastructure is close by. In addition, its intelligent load balancing and compression further help speed up secure content delivery to even the most remote geographic locations. That can help you scale your web services quickly and securely to new markets.
