We’re delighted to announce the launch of five new points of presence (PoPs) for our state-of-the-art Edge Network. These strategic locations, designed to elevate the user experience for end users globally, stretch across continents—from the US East Coast to the Himalayas.
Our core mission is to deliver content efficiently, with minimal latency and top-notch speed, regardless of where users are located. These five PoPs are a leap forward in making fast, secure internet available to everyone. Here are our latest locations:
- Boston, US
- Dublin, Ireland
- San José, Costa Rica
- San Salvador, El Salvador
- Thimphu, Bhutan
Let’s look at what each new PoP offers the local internet infrastructure and see how local internet speeds have changed.
Boston, US: Bridging the Digital Divide
Our new point of presence in Boston targets the Northeastern United States, a hub of innovation, education, and technology. Remarkably, while over 97% of the Massachusetts population has internet access, only 26% enjoy affordable, high-speed broadband.
With this Boston PoP, we’re addressing this imbalance by improving broadband efficiency and speed. Since its deployment, we’ve observed a solid 36 ms average response time, coming alongside and even outperforming competitors, and making the experience smoother and more enjoyable for end-users in the Northeastern United States.
Dublin, Ireland: Supporting Ambitious Digital Goals
Internet connectivity in Ireland is robust, extending to 85% of households, and Digital Ireland Framework (Ireland’s national digital strategy) has set ambitious targets in digital education, broadband coverage, digital services, business, and the enforcement of EU regulations. It’s safe to say that the country’s online connectivity and reliance on the internet is set to grow substantially. Our Dublin PoP makes a contribution to this burgeoning online culture, and the impact has already been notable: Gcore’s response times have dropped from 45 ms to 26 ms and are the fastest in the region.
San José, Costa Rica: A Strong and Growing Market
In Costa Rica, where steady yearly increase of online users of almost 9% and internet penetration already stands at almost 90%, robust internet services are no longer a luxury but a necessity. Our San José PoP has already made waves: users across the country are enjoying a noticeable reduction in latency from 75 ms to 54 ms. They’re also enjoying increased data transfer speeds, elevating the overall digital experience.
San Salvador, El Salvador: Meeting Rising Digital Demand
Over 4.5 million El Salvador residents use the internet, and the local internet usage rate of 71% illustrates substantial future growth potential. Our new PoP aims to capitalize on the growing local demand for online services by offering faster and more reliable internet. Since its inauguration, we’ve seen a substantial reduction in latency and a noteworthy improvement in response time to 15 ms—almost half the regional average.
Thimphu, Bhutan: Navigating New Digital Frontiers
Bhutan serves a rapidly expanding online population that more than doubled in the past five years, reaching over 670,000 internet users (85% of the population). Recognizing this surge in digital engagement, our new point of presence in Thimphu is more than just an infrastructure upgrade; it’s an investment in Bhutan’s digital future.
Since its establishment, the Thimphu PoP has been pivotal in reducing latency and increasing data transfer speeds. Gcore is keeping up with and often outperforming the competition with 65 ms latency, ensuring that this burgeoning online community experiences the internet at its best.
