Google plans to set up cache server in India

Danish Khan, writing for ET Tech:

The US search giant has had initial discussions with fibre manufacturer Sterlite Technologies to co-locate the servers wherever the Indian company’s fibre network is being created, Anand Agarwal, chief executive of the Vedanta Group company, told ET.

A caching node that’s physically closer to your location makes a tremendous difference. I’ve generally been happy with how YouTube videos have been buffering lately and I believe they have a CDN node somewhere in Delhi or Mumbai, but this cache server will also make your Google searches much faster.
