HI, I am running 20$ droplet in Singapore to consume some Chinese APIs based in Beijing. The response speed is crucial for me and now it's around 40ms, which isn't really bad, but could be much higher (e.g. Azure Asia Pacific region provides 5ms).

Is there any way to optimize ping?

  • have you tried Cloudflare? they have a termination datacenter on Singapore, so maybe it helps

  • Hi EpicCDN, thank you for comment. I believe Cloudflare is a CDN for inbound traffic. does it optimize outbound traffic as well (to consume 3d party APIs)? I have just set up them and don't see significant changes
