Any more experiences with VPN down-/up-stream and latency from China to different droplets? I’m going to set up a droplet next month, just can’t decide which Location… I guess, Singapore is out

Singapore server is slow as hell

Source: I am in Malaysia and the ping response time is around 200ms to 300+ms, yea, wth

Going to move my droplet to base in San Francisco

Did anyone find a solution?

I have a VPS in Los Angeles that gets pretty good speeds as a VPN in China. Setup this one on Digitalocean Singapore thinking I would get blazing fast speeds, and it’s slow - very very very slow. Both are using Google’s Outline VPN docker instance.
