Ankr, one of the world’s largest Web3 infrastructure providers, appears to be the fastest of them all based on its low-latency Remote Procedure Call (RPC) connections, according to Ankr statistics from July 31 through August 6. August.
Infura, Ankr, and Alchemy, among others, are decentralized Web3 infrastructure providers that facilitate communication between decentralized applications, developers, and various blockchains.
Developers often leverage Ankr’s APIs and RPCs to easily build DApps, get specialized solutions for blockchain company needs, and contribute to Ankr Earn.
Based on an internal speed test conducted by Ankr, it outperformed its top competitors due to the incredibly low latency RPC connection it offers.
RPC is a type of computer server that allows users to retrieve data from the blockchain and send transactions to various networks.
Its significantly low-latency RPC enables it to perform better than other Web3 infrastructure providers in the industry in terms of response time in milliseconds in every global cloud region where it is located, and it also has more chains and a broader distribution in the various areas of the world such as Africa, America, Oceania, among others.
Ankr received the highest overall speed rating during a testing period from July 31 to August 6, as shown in this chart, which breaks down the number of geographic regions by the number of blockchains.
According to Ankr, it is at least twice as fast than other peoviders in Asia, Oceania, and South America and at least three times faster in Africa than other providers. In Europe, it outperformed all other providers by at least 37%, except QuickNode, which was just 2 ms slower.
Furthermore, Ankr has not just outperformed other providers based on speed but has also done that through the high RPC service reliability it offers, where it consistently performs at the highest uptime standards for its users and supports more chains than any other provider at over 18 proof-of-stake chains.
