Users not getting served from nearest data center


I have my origin hosted in India, also 95% of my customer base is in India. But since I have integrated cloudflare, all my traffic is being served from LHR (London) data centre. As a result, my website has gone slower than before. There are plenty cloudflare data centres near my location in India but why are they not getting used? What should be done to ensure users get served from nearest data centre only.


I’ve heard recently that bandwidth costs in India are high enough that free plans are routed through other POPS with lower bandwidth costs.

London’s a bit of a long reach, though. You might have to ask Support why you’re not using a closer datacenter.
