Hey friend!

Latency will be determined by the path from your location to the server, largely defined by your ISP. Many ISPs work directly with Google to run local pops for high speed, hosted by the ISP themselves, allowing it to have lower latency.

Generally speaking, 200-300ms is not that bad latency if you’re crossing the ocean to hit the server. I’m not sure where you are or what datacenter your droplet is in, but you can try out our other locations to see if another one works better for your use case.
