Fastly Debug App - Server Location?

Hi folks,

Excuse me if this is a dumb question - I’m a bit of a noob here.

I am located in Toronto. But when I load the Fastly Debug App, it says it is connecting to the Montreal datacenter, even though the latency to the Toronto datacenter is lower. Why is this?

Besides general curiosity, I’m also asking because I’m worried that content on the Fastly network is being sent to me from Montreal rather than Toronto.

Hey @Senner87, can you send over the results for us to review? The short answer is that many factors may influence a specific client’s connection experience, so it’s not easy to point to a single definitive answer.
