We're excited to introduce Cape Town (South Africa) as a new region on the Edge Network. Using Vercel Analytics, we saw a 50% reduction in end-user Time To First Byte (TTFB) in South Africa.

Static files and function responses are now automatically cached in the Cape Town region. You can now select this region for running Serverless Functions in your Project Settings. Edge Middleware will now also run in this region, resulting in improved performance for surrounding countries.

Check out the documentation as well.
