Internet slowed down in Russia

Microsoft and Netflix turned off CDN servers at the Moscow traffic exchange point MSK-IX. This is a network of servers that are located in the networks of large Internet providers and at traffic exchange points in order to speed up the loading of the content of sites and applications within the country.

In addition to Microsoft and Netflix, CDN servers were previously disabled by other foreign companies that until recently worked in Russia, but left the Russian market after the imposition of sanctions, including Google. Their services remain available, but they are much slower.

Microsoft CDN servers rent many services, including those operating in Russia. Disabling them will lead to a drop in the speed of popular sites and applications. Due to the shutdown of Google’s CDN servers, some sites slowed down, and photos, videos, and other content stopped displaying on Google’s own sites (for example, the web version of Google Photos).
