This reduce the latency for indian users, already Cloudflare (DNS and CDN edge server service provider) already opened in india (chennai and mumbai), so indians experience improved latency from international sites, but still indian ISP are far behind the interational ISP with their 512 kbps limit in 100 mbps fiber or high speed Adsl , it’s a big joke, but hope in future they give more speeds.

Amazon cloud have free tier which is more useful for testing purpose and script testing, i use it for installing “Traccar” script there, so i can monitor other family members in realtime (with 5 second delay – speed, location, altitude), now i will transfer it to india, so reduced data and latency
