I'm getting a far away POP

Hello, I’ve tried both from my home in Sunsvall in the middle of Sweden and also from a ec2 instance in eu-north-1 aws region and when I access cached content from my domain alter.sh I get a POP in copenhagen. I would like to get the ARN POP north of Stockholm. I’ve upgraded to a Business plan and tried turn on argo.
This is both subdomains with and without workers. Is there something I can do about this?

Generally -> Peering - Why don't I reach the closest datacenter to me?

Can you check at https://cloudflare-test.judge.sh/ whether there is any site that routes you to ARN?

Hej! I’ve been to Sunsvall and Sörberge, you live in an amazingly beautiful city.

Routing to a particular colo is generally dependent on the ISP and their routing algorithms/peering decisions as @sandro mentioned. From Austin, for example I’ll usually hit our Houston DC, but occasionally that will change depending on the network (or the routing table at my provider) and I’ll sometimes see connections going through Dallas or on the odd occasion… Chicago.

You mentioned Argo, that’s really an optimization of the route from the Cloudflare POP to the origin and wouldn’t effect eyeball to colo.

Thank you both @cs-cf and @sandro. As of this morning it seems I’m getting the ARN POP, yay! Does that have anything to do with me upgrading to a Business plan or should that not matter?

Have your IP addresses changed? What about my original question?

@sandro Yeah, I checked it and this morning it was mostly ARN, now though it seems to be most GOT so I guess that change now and again.

Hmm, looking at that site now though it seems the CPH are only free acccounts…

What about yesterday? But, yes with a paid plan you are likely to be assigned blocks with better routing. So the question is, have your IP addresses changed since yesterday?

Are we talking about the ip assigned to my domain by cloudflare?

Yes, of course. Has that changed since you switched plan.

Seemingly so. Earlier you were apparently on 104.18 addresses, currently you are on 104.26. So I’d dare to say the upgrade is the reason for the improved routing.

@sandro I was about to say I don’t know, just used curl and wrk2 and they do not show resolved ip so I could not check my buffer from yesterday. But how did you get the old ip’s? That would be good to know for future reference! =),

Edit: Also I downgraded to PRO, about 2 hours ago, so that 104.26 is what I got now.
