The short answer is, “it depends.”

While it’s generally always better to have your server as close to your target audience as possible – a quality CDN does help substantially world-wide.

At the end of the day CloudFlare and other CDNs do still have to retrieve the data from the origin at least once and the closer the origin is to the end-user the better.

Beyond that nothing is perfect.
