Argo Smart Routing

Globally accelerate your traffic with a single click

The public Internet does its best to deliver your content — but it can’t account for network congestion, leading to slow load times and a degraded end-user experience.

The Cloudflare network is different. It routes an average of 45 million requests per second — giving our Argo Smart Routing service a unique vantage point to detect real-time congestion and route web traffic across the fastest and most reliable network paths.

On average, web assets using Argo perform 30% faster.
