> It may work great for europe, but most of the world's population is elsewhere.

That's true, European providers work best for Europe.

But how many global locations does a service really need, if it's sitting behind a CDN? Three locations (East Coast, Western Europe, and Singapore) alone are enough to be within 100-150 ms of the most of the world's population.

OVH probably wouldn't be the best choice for projects focused exclusively on South America or China, but it already covers the rest of the world pretty well, including three locations in North America (East Coast, West Coast, and Canada).
