Visitors today expect fast, high-quality online video experiences, regardless of device, connection type, or location. Video services which fail to meet visitor expectations can experience lower engagement and revenues. Every incremental one-second buffering delay for video playback results in a six percent increase in abandonment rates.1
Cloudflare’s global Anycast network ensures fast online video experiences, with shorter video startup times and reduced buffering, no matter where your visitors are located. Flat-rate bandwidth pricing ensures predictable costs, even in the case of legitimate traffic spikes or volumetric DDoS attack.
