Cloudflare increased the response time of my server?

bug

Your main page source loads in 1.2 seconds. The SSL portion only takes 8ms. Everything else is pretty quick.

In my location takes more time to load, im talking from Brazil.
Since Cloudflare closed the Brazilian server and the sites that were in this server in Brazil were transferred to Miami, the server takes more time to respond here

It’s not closed, it’s just not accessible if you are on the Free plan and/or varies depending on the peering agreement your ISP has, it could simply be that they prefer sending Cloudflare traffic to Miami.

I got it now, so in that case I would have to enable the Premium plan to “fix” this?

I want to know this as well, should we enable Argo?

This is not related to being premium or not. I have a website in Brasil for the past couple years on Cloudflare. It happens that depending on the ISP you are using to visit the website, it may or may not reach GRU/RIO in Brazil, or instead go through MIA/EWR/IAD etc. in the U.S.

From my base in Florianópolis, for instance, if I visit my site using Vivo Fibra, it is served out of MIA. But if I use my cell phone using TIM, the same website is served out of IAD. Sometimes TIM gives me GRU.

If you use WIndows Power Shell, you can check the long trip your ISP makes before handing traffic to Cloudflare by running the command

tracert example.com

I use an iPad app on iPad called Nice Trace that gives a little more detail and even adds country flags to each step from my home to Cloudflare.

As you can see on the following screenshots, there’s some traffic in Brazil before it is sent to some Telefónica datacenters in Spain (Vivo) or TIM servers in Italy, and from there to Cloudflare in the US.

I doubt using Argo or Pro Plan would make any difference, as long as these ISPs continue to handle traffic the way they do now.

I can confirm that argo or pro plan does not make any difference… in my country its the same where each isp use different servers enabling argo or pro plan didnt change any of that

Now I get it. So I was talking nonsense.

But my website loads faster in HTTP than in HTTPS is true and I can’t understand why…

I’m from Brazil, hosting server is from here. Latency is around 36ms without Cloudflare. With Cloudflare it is around 150ms.

How to adjust this? any news?

I could not solve it, so my only option was to change the host server that improved a lot.

I tested just now and the results below… How fast do you switch nameservers back and forth?? you need to let them propagate for hours before everything propagates properly.

UK Load time 5.68 s

Sao Paulo Load time 11.96 s

If you’re using their shared hosting, you’ll find that the server times out a lot.

Are there no Cloudflare servers in Brazil? I don’t understand latency is so high, 4 times higher.

P.S.: or the service in Brazil only works on server here when the plan is paid?
