    Any idea where I can find Telefonica's list of POPs?
    I can't find anything useful on their site.


    For South America users, would you recommend Global Crossing over Telefonica?

    Is it necessary to use a datacenter that is close to South America to improve performance?

    I would recommend one that has connections to both. There are different ISP's in SA and they all use different routes, so 1 provider will not be good to all of them.
    Yes, as with any location -- the closer the datacenter to the user traffic, the better the performance.

    What part of SA in particular are you referring to?

    From Brazil:

    LAX: 220-240ms
    SEA: 260-280ms

    From Argentina:

    A bit more than that.

    East Coast is your best option. Miami (where all fiber lands), Atlanta and Ashburn in order of preference. You can do New York too if Brazil is the main target.
    Miami to Rio de Janeiro ranges from 110 to 130ms, Atlanta 130-150ms, Ashburn 140-160ms, NY 160-180ms.

    Telefonica peers in Miami (privately), Ashburn (publicly), Dallas (publicly). Oi Globenet BrasilTelecom peer in Miami (publicly) and NY (publicly).
