Optimizing nginx Time to First Byte

RE: Optimizing nginx Time to First Byte
If you have visitors from around the world, a CDN can get rid of the network latencies from traversing the globe. That's usually in the 100ms range from Europe to the US, 70ms between the US coasts and as much as 200-300ms between Asia and the US. That pretty much dwarfs your server-side latencies and it's not something you will be able to test without actually distributing the content.

That said, it only really matters if you have visitors from further away. If all of your visitors are from within a few thousand miles of your server then it's probably a wash.
