Slow network with Selenium Webdriver?

Hey guys. I’m running Selenium Webdriver on my digitalocean VPS (the $20 droplet plan) to interface some website and gather details about it. On my PC, it takes about half a second. My internet speed is about 200mbps. On the DigitalOcean server, however, it takes almost 5 seconds (sometimes even longer.) Does anyone know what could be the cause of this, and would getting a dedicated CPU or increasing the size in any way help?
