Hi there
I know a CDN can improve the performance of static websites, which is good.
Can enabling public CDN improve SharePoint Online Intranet performance for a dynamic site collection, where users see only those documents they have permission to?

Thanks.

    Hi @frob ,

    Yes! You can use the built-in Microsoft 365 content delivery network (CDN) to host static assets to provide better performance for your SharePoint Online pages. The Microsoft 365 CDN improves performance by caching static assets closer to the browsers requesting them, which helps to speed up downloads and reduce latency. Also, the Microsoft 365 CDN uses the HTTP/2 protocol for improved compression and HTTP pipelining. The Microsoft 365 CDN service is included as part of your SharePoint Online subscription.

    You can use the built-in Office 365 Content Delivery Network (CDN) to host static assets to provide better performance for your SharePoint Online pages.
