hi… this link does not work anymore ,

You can vote for this on our suggestions board: Datacenter in South Africa.

mmmm … would be great if they can open in DC here in South Africa…

Ran the tests and it seems like London is the best.

Created a droplet in each area pinged then all from Gauteng In South Africa

The droplets were destroyed after the test, so pinging then now probably will not work

The results are below

Hope this helps somebody

Hi Kamal,

Not to hijack the thread, but are there any future plans for opening a DO data center in South Africa?

I know there will be huge support for DO services in SA. I personally prefer using DO over the local Cloud solutions but they still rule the roost with low latency.

Thanks,

Michael
