WPengine CDN worth it with personal plan?

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

I recently moved to WP Engine from another host. So far, everything’s been great. Support isn’t always quick but it’s fairly responsive. Speed is DEFINITELY faster.

I’m considering using their CDN but I didn’t have a good experience with cloudflare. Not only did I not see any real improvement with my site’s speed with them, I had constant downtime (at least once every week or two that I happen to notice when I was trying to access the site myself) that went away as soon as I cut cloudflare out being my CDN.

I’m right at the cusp of having too much traffic for wpengine’s personal plan and not enough to warrant their professional plan. Their professional plan includes their CDN.

What I’m wondering is if people really see a marked difference in their website speed with the wpengine CDN to make it worth the extra $20/mo in the interim. I’ve been looking on google for a while but can’t find anything yet.

Anyone have any real data?
