Dropbox has established 11 points of presence around the world, with five in the US, three in Europe, and Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan in APJ.
The company has also set up a metadata proxy server in Sydney to benefit Australian users.
By locating data closer to users, these changes mean syncing is now up to three times faster, the company claimed.
In related news, Dropbox has instigated an open and free of charge peering policy allowing ISPs to connect to the company's network to further improve performance for joint customers.
More than 400 ISPs around the world are already participating in the program, including Vocus Communications in New Zealand.
Asked about Australian participants, Dropbox ANZ managing director Charlie Wood told iTWire that "one of the telcos" is a peer.
"Anyone can sign up for peering with us," explained Iversen, providing they meet certain bandwidth requirements.
