Routing when accessing from Bali, Indonesia

Hi
I’m seeking clarification as to why when accessing a site there appears to be some bad choices for the how its routing

Server is located in Sydney and I’m in Bali.

I would had thought that CF would hit Jakarta or Singapore however traffic routes through LAX (when connected with Biznet) or NRT (when connected with Telekomsel /4g)

Cloudflare generally isn’t in charge of your routing unless there’s an issue with your local datacenters. You can try https://cloudflare-test.judge.sh/ and see how your domain compares to others.

If your server is in Australia, there is the chance that it is on one of the isps that cloudflare does not cheap/free peer with. Bandwidth Costs Around the World India australia DCs are Pro plan or higher. Routing wrong country - #3 by cscharff
