Its price is really high and can be improved. From the technology perspective, they should have some multi-platform integration. When you are configuring something on top of it, it is geoblocking. There are some limitations for the IP addresses, which other solutions don't have. They should have more Edge locations so that CloudFront can be used much more. If they can make it a little bit cheaper and better than other networks, we will be able to use it more. They don't have a lot of PoPs in Asia-Pacific. That's one of the reasons why there is some latency. They can reduce this latency by adding multiple PoPs. If we are concentrating on markets, such as Vietnam, the Philippines, where we don't have PoPs, we have to ride on other providers.
