What is Amazon CloudFront?
Amazon CloudFront can be used to deliver your entire website, including dynamic, static, streaming, and interactive content using a global network of edge locations. Requests for your content are automatically routed to the nearest edge location, so content is delivered with the best possible performance.
What is MaxCDN?
The MaxCDN Content Delivery Network efficiently delivers your site’s static file through hundreds of servers instead of slogging through a single host. This "smart route" technology distributes your content to your visitors via the city closest to them.
What is KeyCDN?
KeyCDN is a superfast Content Delivery Network with best prices on the market. This CDN allows you to accelerate any kind of content.

I love CloudFront. All my assets are hosted by them, and they cut page load time in half, and my average bill is around $0.15/month. They're good, fast, and cheap — pick three!
Ridiculously high added fees for everything.

Their website only shows the prices for some aspects of the service, mainly just the bandwidth. But where they really get you is by charging high fees for everything else. Their basic rate only includes North America and Europe. You have to pay extra for other locations. Then hosting a subdomain costs $100 extra/month (no idea why, other CDNs do it for free), additional zones cost extra (normally free with other CDNs), no caching rules unless you pay extra, hidden fees for push data storage, etc etc.
Very impressed so far.

Turned out to be the best CDN of the ones we tried (including CloudFront, CacheFly, and MaxCDN). It's by far the best modern, well designed, and easy to use interface. It seems to have every feature we could need, including SPDY support (which CloudFront still lacks), an API that allows easy free cache invalidation, HTTPS SNI, and real-time logging.
It didn't seem to be very fast at first and we almost stopped using them, but it turns out they have an odd quirk where they don't cache pages that don't set a Content-Length header (which PHP pages normally don't). Once we set up a work-around for that issue, it worked very well. Hopefully that's an issue they can fix on their end eventually.
The best CDN I have ever used

Before choosing KeyCDN, I have tried a dozen of CDNs out there. Once I subscribed to KeyCDN, I forgot every other service. Easy to use, fastest and cheapest!
Content Delivery - as easy as possible.

Using it with my webforum (9000 Users/Month / 600.000 Requests) Easy to integrate with existing documentations for all big applications, free ssl support with let's encrypt or own certificate. Ability to use own domain (like cdn.yourdomain.org). You only pay for that what you're really using (pay as you go).
Using KeyCDN already a little bit more then one year, i love it. Loadspeed improved heavily (without: 2,5-4s | with (0,5-1,2s).
Support is very fast and helpful in any situation.
And the most important thing: cheaper then others. while being much faster.
I can only recommend everyone to use KeyCDN.
But please keep this in mind, unused credits will expire after one year if there wasn't a payment for more than a year but you can retain them with any payment for another year before the expiry.
Great CDN alternative

My experience with KeyCDN has been great. They have a really good product, easy to setup and use. They also have a great customer service. I totally recommend them.
Cheap and Good

Very good service and cheap, worth the money.
The BEST CDN to USE
July 30, 2017 06:25
The ability to fine tune the configuration of each zone to a specific business goal. The robust set of features available at no extra cost such as: HTTP2, Custom SSL, GZip Compression, HLS optimisation. Quick addition of latest technologies such as the Brotli compression algorithm. Still have one minus, is limit of 5 zones only. Very recommend to use
Great affordable CDN

I was using MaxCdn for a few years and found it too expensive for my low traffic wordpress sites. Then I found KeyCDN and found all the same features and benefits for half the price. I have been pretty happy using KeyCDN and switching over to them has been painless.
Great service! Great price!

I love KeyCDN! The services has all the features required to serve as a video CDN. Plus they have a very responsive support team. You can go wrong with them.
KeyCDN 2017 Review
August 17, 2017 17:05
KeyCDN is a simple-to-use and reliable solution to decrease page load times around the world. In particular, I enjoy the simplicity of the dashboard provided, the CMS integration documentation, custom sub-domain configuration, and Let's Encrypt support.
As an individual user, I use KeyCDN for a variety of different personal projects, some of which may experience high traffic at peak times. I have never once had an issue with the KeyCDN service and it has served me well over the past year.
My one and only issue with KeyCDN is that there is a minimum purchase requirement and that the credits purchased will expire after one year. Still, one could rationalize KeyCDN as a yearly subscription service this way and it would still be a good deal for those who need a reliable CDN provider.
Pathwright uses Amazon CloudFront
Parked in front of an nginx instance that serves all of our static assets. Performance and reliability have been excellent, and the header pass-through rules are wonderful. Price is affordable, as well.

media CDN and edge cache, poor mans reverse proxy to separate static asset traffic from application traffic from marketing traffic etc
StackShare uses Amazon CloudFront
We chose CloudFront mostly because it’s incredibly popular. But also because it’s the recommended CDN for Heroku, which means there shouldn’t be any problems using them together. Rails makes it really easy to drop in a CDN reference for your app so that when your assets get compiled, they’re shipped off to the CDN and then deployed with your app.
So anytime we push to Heroku, we’re pushing up to CloudFront (if the assets don’t already exist). One major issue we still haven’t been able to solve involves Fonts. Has anyone actually been able to get fonts served up through CloudFront using Rails 4 and Heroku? Literally spent hours researching this and can’t find any solutions. We ended up just referencing a CDN for all the font libraries.
We have a separate distribution for each environment, since I don’t think it’s possible to use the same distribution for the multiple domains.

CloudFront's easy to use in front of S3, especially for videos, which don't load reliably from S3. We've noticed latency issues with CloudFront, and so don't use it for everything, though.
