Reston, VA, February 24, 2021 – Tiggee LLC, parent company of DNS Made Easy and Constellix has announced a new point of presence (PoP) in Stockholm, Sweden the Equinix SK1 data facility. This PoP adds 10 Gbps of peering capacity to the Tiggee AS16552 network and increases its transit capacity to over 730 Gbps. This latest expansion will provide a noticeable performance boost for customers in the area.
The Stockholm expansion marks the 5th PoP Tiggee has added to its network in just over a year. This latest move into northern Europe is a testament to the company’s commitment to providing the fastest and most reliable DNS in the world. DNS Made Easy and Constellix customers in Sweden and the surrounding Nordic countries can expect to see significant speed improvements. This latest PoP will also give European users a substantial performance boost.
“We chose to expand the DNS Made Easy and Constellix network into Stockholm, Sweden based on user feedback, thorough industry analysis, and the amount of the incoming DNS queries we receive through other European PoPs,” says Steven Job, President of Tiggee LLC. “The Tiggee team has been working diligently to bring faster speeds and better traffic decisions to more areas. This latest expansion allows us to continue our efforts and commitment to eliminating connectivity gaps across the world.”
As you can see from the graphs below, just one additional point of presence can make a huge impact on a large area. Here are a few examples:
Before adding the Stockholm PoP, DNS Made Easy and Constellix averaged just over 25.11 milliseconds.
Post POP, speeds have decreased to an average of 19.43/19.93 over the last 30 days. However, as the graph demonstrates, speeds are leveling out to 14.88 milliseconds as more data is compiled. Customers should expect speeds to remain consistently at or below the 15-millisecond mark going forward.
More than 27 million people live in the Nordic countries of Europe, 10 million of which reside in Sweden. The Nordic region contributes approximately $1.5 trillion to the global economy and is the 10th largest economy in the world. Tiggee’s Stockholm PoP will drastically reduce latency for businesses in these areas. Such an increase in speeds will enable Northern European businesses to further leverage the Tiggee network to their advantage in the competitive online marketplace.
Tiggee has a 12-year history of 100% uptime—the longest in the industry and has consistently delivered top speeds for organizations across the globe for more than 20 years. The company is aggressively expanding and upgrading its infrastructure in an ongoing effort to provide an even better experience for small and enterprise-level businesses. Since August 2020, Tiggee has added PoPs in South Africa, India, Paris, Toronto, and now Stockholm, and upgrades to current PoPs in Seattle and Miami are in the works. Another recent Tiggee expansion included the acquisition of PerfOps, the leading analytics platform for DNS and CDN providers in December 2021.
User experience is paramount for Tiggee and its subsidiaries DNS Made Easy, Constellix, and PerfOps. Every decision for long-term development and expansion plans is based on thoughtful analysis of industry trends and direct customer feedback. A new PoP in northern Europe is a highly anticipated addition to the Tiggee network and will provide organizations with noticeable improvements in latency and DNS resolution speeds.
