This is certainly a massive list of advantages, however what about the disadvantages? Well, TechRadar has rated this as 2.5/5, citing frequent technical glitches, few (workable or meaningful) features, substandard support & unlikely honoring of low latency guarantee. CDN.net’s main USP is its pricing, although, for such low industry prices, the functionality appears to be compromised. As this is self-defeating, such a prospect seems unworthy of further consideration…
