Don’t worry, I don’t need Spectrum nor do I have any production app to actually use it for. (Except I do want to test the latency and how well it performs)
A couple months ago I was looking at the Cloudflare Spectrum page and saw that Hypixel is using it, then I saw the pricing and said no way. One of the dev’s for Hypixel said their server transfers 2PB of data a week. I can assure you that no company would be paying that much for transfer lmao. $1m/week? Impossible lol. Tiktok probably doesn’t even pay that much to Akamai or fastly in a month.
So my two questions are, how does Cloudflare negotiate pricing and who is able to initiate negotiation? Or I guess, DOES Cloudflare negotiate pricing?
My last question is, how do you know if someone is using Spectrum?
Here is a Minecraft servers IP. Is this the canonical name and they’re using spectrum. Hypixel is using Spectrum as well, but this doesn’t show up. Maybe they have a feature to hide it?
