    SAP-C02 practice exam, the question is

    > A company hosts a web application service in the AWS eu-west-1 region. The application serves high-resolution weather maps to users. The maps are updated frequently which are stored in an Amazon S3 bucket along with the static web contents. The web application is behind an Amazon CloudFront distribution. The company has expanded and now provides the same service to North American users. The new users report that their viewing experience with the weather maps is inconsistent and slow at times.

    In the answers section you note an answer is wrong, saying:

    > S3 Transfer Acceleration is mainly suited for improving upload speeds to the Amazon S3 bucket.

    However AWS Docs (https://aws.amazon.com/s3/transfer-acceleration/) clearly says

    > Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration can speed up content transfers to and from Amazon S3 by as much as 50-500% for long-distance transfer of larger objects.

    Please correct this question and its answers

    Hi Seth_e,

    Thanks for the feedback on this question.

    I have reviewed the scenario and I have made revisions to the explanation to reflect proper AWS documentation.

    The goal of this question scenario is to use AWS Global Accelerator and I think that it is still the suitable choice for this scenario.

    S3 acceleration can help speed up the process of transfers to and from Amazon S3. However, it would incur additional costs in terms of data transfers.

    Hope this helps.
