Phoenix DNS not being assigned to Phoenix user

I live in Phoenix and lately have noticed that Cloudflare is assigning me a DNS from LAX instead of PHX like it use to. The PHX DNS is operational. Just curious because PHX is closer than LAX.



Cloudflare uses Anycast which has the benefit of responding with the nearest server from a topological view, not a geographical view. Iā€™m not a routing expert, but it could be that the routes are not optimized in this case. You could ask support for more information on this and they might look more into it.

Thanks Tom, I appreciate your input.
