Performance Issue for free account and bandwidth costs around the world

Hey Cloudflare Community,

Hey I am just starting and practicing over JAMStack and my question is more research based …
So I just setup the domain https://jamstack.xyz/ and It’s currently using

Host: Google Cloud Storage #Static
CDN: CloudFlare
DNS: CloudFlare

Have not added any content deliberately as I am working on my blog and thus didn’t deployed… just a hello world html page over there

But here is my question,
So I tested pings of my above site and another cloudflare site https://discordapp.com/ and results are quite drastic speed difference at various locations. I think that inclines with this article of Cloudflare’s " Bandwidth Costs Around the World"

So my question is at minimum at which account (pro or business) I have to be to subscribe to get same pings like discord for example??

PS: Please Ignore china for my questions … I know that’s for enterprise only :stuck_out_tongue:

Attaching the pings results differences too for both sites … sorry for such a large file … Cheers!

Interestingly your results are faster in a number of locations… part of this are variables we don’t know. It is possible that discordapp.com has multiple servers / datacenters around the world and is using load balancers with geo or latency based redirection. They are also (according to this press release anyway) using Argo https://globenewswire.com/news-release/2017/05/18/987816/0/en/Cloudflare-Introduces-Argo-A-Virtual-Backbone-for-a-Faster-More-Reliable-Internet.html

But still besides Argo,
regarding this article https://blog.cloudflare.com/bandwidth-costs-around-the-world/

If I want these networks as mentioned in article do I need to buy a Subscription. If yes then which one?
PS: Asking this for my future customers and ofcourse future me!!

As far as I know Business (and up, obviously) should guarantee all POPs (with possible variability in case of high loads somewhere, but those are temporary issues). I don’t think there is an actual change between Free and Pro except some small change on priority in case of high loads.
